    Default Modern case for Gibson K2 mandocello?

    Does anyone know of a currently available hardshell case that fits a vintage Gibson A-style mandocello?

    About to take possession of a 1913 K2 that doesn't have a case.

    I'm looking at this but it seems like it may be just a little on the small side. Seller hasn't answered my questions.

    My 1916 K-1 lives in a modified dobro case. Some shaped foam inserts covered with case lining material and glued into place make it a really great fit. If you don't find a case, maybe consider doing something similar?

    Enjoy!

    Cedar Creek Cases built a beautiful custom case for my 1908 Gibson mandocello. One thing to bear in mind: the depth of Gibson mandocellos varied quite a bit over the years (like everything else at Gibson).

    Kind of hoping not to have to go the Cedar Creek route ... 'tis costly. Hoping there's a banjo or OM case already being made that would fit.

    My Andersen cello lives in what I believe is a Superior banjo case, and it's a nice fit. OTOH, my first K1 came with no case and I bought a Blue Heron padded bag for it, which served quite well.
