    I'm astounded nobody in the U.K. has mentioned Ross Kemp yet. He certainly presents himself as a British hard case.

    For Seamus and sportsnapper just saw this on the Hobgoblin website https://www.hobgoblin.com/local/sale...e-a-style-too/

    Don't know if it's any use for either of you?

    My first thought was that it might be a TKL but it seems to be the same photo as they've used in their Ashbury advert. Trouble is that the external piccy. of the Ashbury case isn't the same case as the piccy. of it open! I'd have thought that, if you're selling a used item, the photo you post of it should be the actual item and not one of your stock photos.

    Yes, Hobgoblin can be a bit haphazard with photos on their second hand stuff.

    Thanks - I'll give them a call and ask about it. As you say, the image isn't helpful - in fact Hobgoblins website is pretty poor IMHO - no case interiors - which you really want to see if you're buying a case.

    Definitely call them - I haven't had much luck with emailing them Think that you said that you have a Kentucky from another thread? If so they may even be able to check if one of their stock ones fits?

    @onechordtrick - I looked at this again and it's for an F - though it might fit an A. I've also seen this TGI A style case at Normans https://www.normans.co.uk/product/tg...dolin-hardcase - which seems to be a reasnoble fit. It's cheaper then the hobgoblin version, and they do free returns - so I've taken a chance and ordered this today - so let you know how it goes.

    My case arrived on Friday. Very pleased, it's a good, not perfect fit for my Kentucky. The one issue I have is that the neck support is a little high - but at least there is one. And the case only has two catches - but do you need more? It's certainly robust, and will be fine for protecting the instrument around the house and in the car. A couple of images - if anyone wants more please ask.

    If the neck support is too high, you might be able to take it out, chop a bit off the bottom and screw it back in lower down. Does the back of the instrument sit on the bottom of the case? If you chop a bit off the neck support, would it make it sit better and/or would closing the lid not hold it securely in place?

    You could always introduce soma additional padding underneath the mandolin. The problem I have with an ill-fitting, el-chealpo, parlour guitar case is that it has two neck supports so resting the neck on them lifts the back of the guitar up.

    Ray - I looked at making the next support smaller - but it also involves messing with the little box as well. I'll have a better look when I have more time. Still very impressed at the quality for the price :-)
