  3. Re: Northfield Airloom Tura case versus Hoffee carbon fiber case

    I understand the uselessness of the usual case latch locks ... which is why on the Hoffees I've bought I ask Jeff to put on the twist latches; an all around better latch with a better locking option.

    Re: Mods to Hoffee case?

    Jeff Hoffee just did a refit of a guitar case for me. Refit and return shipping was $250. Can't beat the cases or the service. All of my ten thumbs up for Jeff and his crew.

    Re: I've gone to the dark side

    What Jill said about Newtone strings. I love them on my tenors and plectrum. You'll have a choice of nickel plated steel or phosphor bronze. Great strings.
