    Those are all new ones! The original ones didn’t have the rectangular nameplate. I’ve both mandolin and guitar cases “before the plate”.

    The guitar case is from 1976 and the mandolin one several years later. I swapped the mandolin case (when it was new) for an Ibanez plywood case (not so new). Straight swap, great deal! It’s black and the owners wife wouldn’t have it in the house ‘cos it looked like a baby’s coffin!

    Nice! Purple is my favorite color - didn't know anyone made mando cases in purple! Or is it guitar cases only?

    you can get a mando case in this color! They have a couple of options on mando cases now too. The one pictured in my first post, or very similar, and one that is a bit bigger giving your more interior storage. They also have some nice glitter and sparkle finish options.

    Right?! I went with a solid color when I got a Calton made for one of my tenor banjos but I'm kind of kicking myself that I didn't just throw caution to the wind and got for one of the paint splatter options!

    I probably should have kept it too... But I LOVE what I got in return.
