    Re: Mid-range Case Recommendations

    One other idea would be to find a Collings case. They are made by TXL and seem a little more solid than a standard TXL case. They have upgraded hinges, a very nice handle and the interior is much...

    Crossrock accommodate a range of sizes. It ships with an extra foam piece that you can use to snug it up. I leave the Tone-Guard on my mandolins and the Crossrock handles that well also.

    Hiscox is my favorite at any price. Light, kind to the instrument, and protective.

    I'm a big fan of my Northfield Airloom case. At $399 it's a little above your price range but well below the Carlton range. Any questions about my experience with it, just ask!

    Only play it in the dark. You’ll only hear it and think it’s pristine.

    Not to steal the thread but I guess I'm a little prejudice about old and used, this is my 1939 harley knucklehead bobber motorgoat with a 1937 Indian tank. All of it is absolutely 100% naturally...

    Well, you can be thankful it doesn't look like this one. You're getting good advice here. There's people that pay extra for the age lines but only you can decide if you're happy with it.
