  7. Re: Do you think a Morris flat top would fit in this case?

    I keep my Morris flatty in one of those generic hard styrofoam oblog cases made for an F model I had ,and use pillow case or whatever for a little padding. Does the job.

  9. Re: Getting better at Mandolin by Playing other Instruments
