    I just got a KM 1050. I have a tone guard and Banjo lit arm rest. Would like to be able to leave tone gard on...What are some cases that would be a great snug fit?

    My Gator ABS molded mandolin case fits my Gibson F-9 with a pickguard, armrest and a ToneGard. Snug but not dangerously so. I've had excellent experience with these cases.

    There is a Northfield Airloom Deluxe with a case cover available in the classifieds and for a great price too. Excellent cases. Lp

    I like this case. I don't use a tonegard, but it would surely fit.

    I have one of the TKL arched cases and the mandolin with Tonegard fits nicely and safely in it.

    $25.00 less than a new one at NF, shipping included plus you would get a very nice cover too. I have no vested interest. I have one. Excellent case with a gracious plenty storage room to boot. A, F with or without Toneguard no problem. Lp

    I have my F style with toneguard and armrest in a TKL oblong case. Very tight fit, but if I line it up flat and gently press, it slides right in. My Travelite has a bit more room.

    I have my Ratliff plus toneguard in the Northfield Heirloom. Fits great, but it’s not a road case.

    I love my Paganoni Loar style cases, I use them for all my main mandolins as they have that great vintage looking vibe, I've used the same one for one of my F-5's for almost 20 years and I've had a Tone Guard on it for well over 10 years and it fits great in a Pag case.
