Thread: Case for Gibson A5 double point

    Default Case for Gibson A5 double point

    I have a 63 Gibson A5 " Jethro" the case that came with it does not fit very well, likely not the original. Does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement that will protect better?

    Im pretty sure a hiscox would do it. I don’t think configuration matters if body width and length are normal spec

    Q: How does the one you have Not fit to your satisfaction?


    consider a case from Pegasus , in Scotland,

    I suspect if you send him enough information, he can make all the liner blocks & padding
    to custom fit your mandolin, ...

    I got a 2nd hand F5 Peg.. among the best in the world..

    Mandroid, when in case about 1/3 of the back does not rest on the bottom of the case. The heel is about 1 1/8" off the case bottom and most of the pressure seems to be on the headstock as the neck does not touch the neck rest in case. Its a Gibson case but does not seem to be correct unless that is typical!
