Kind of like a half-moon violin case, except with bumps. (Maybe its a half-cumulus case?)

If there is a place called Rosineky near Ho Chi Minh City, it might have been made there.

That's the same case that Antonio Tsai (Vietnam) ships in.

It's like an old Fender "poodle" case.

I'm calling the SPCA. You have to carry a poodle in a proper cage/box.

I love it! The world's first herringbone lump-scroll F-5! Mirror-image headstock, scroll tailpiece, and a Dampit to boot! When that tramp steamer docked in Spokane, mandolin history was made...

With regard to the case, it's better-looking than the ones I build.

Later: forgot to add my appreciation for the "Gibson strings and Martin pick." That makes it better than either Gibson or Martin!
