    Default Eastman case replacement

    I recently got an earlier Eastman 805 mandolin, one with the reverse tuners. Im planning on keeping it. Im not fond of their original cases. For under $200 what case would you recommend? Id like a fitted case and not one that fits A or Fs.

    How about an Eastman Fiberglass case ... I bought a used one years ago & I like it ,
    the new ones look to fit F4 and 5, + of course, both A 4&5.

    pay them what they charge or go without... NB: Haggling is not part of modern retail ..

    What is wrong with a standard TKL case. This is an A-model, right? I have quite a few of those they work quite nicely. This nicer one is on sale at Elderly.
