    The calton mandolin case shows a significant improvement in headstock storage space. The right is made in 2007 and the left is new in 2019. I've often heard that scrolls have broken in the past.Click image for larger version.

    The new Mando case designs are a nice improvement for sure.

    I decided to spruce up my sea foam case. Maybe I went a bit overboard!

    I'm told yet another F-5 case update is forthcoming: a slightly larger shell that adds 1" of width (1/2" per side) to provide more peghead scroll and body point clearance.

    Many years ago at a party I met a young doctor who was a police scientist working with blood spatter analysis. Trying to make conversation, I mistakenly, I kept calling it "blood splatter analysis" and she kept correcting me, so the word "splatter" always raises a red flag for me when I hear it, FWIW.

    The dictionary definition seems to refer to the "amount" as being the determining factor in calling something splatter or spatter. And, in the "case" of the brown case, it appears to have both..........

    Maplebaby, thanks, I did that myself, with some help from and old Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, a copy machine and an old fashioned projector. I made a transparency of the logo, projected it onto my case and then painted it. I don't know whether that "Bluegrass" is still available somewhere or not.

    Thanks for taking time to respond, I think it looks fantastic and makes your case a true original!
