    Default Who makes a Fender style emando case?

    Well I finally completed my IV emando kit and now I need a case. I can't seem to find any emando cases only F or A style which the emando won't fit. I'm looking preferably a tweed Fender style rectangular case, any recommendations? I've spent over an hour searching site after site and can't seem to find anything that would work.

    Thanks everyone!

    I modify an Access Stage 3 case for my electric mandolins.

    Epiphone had one for their mandobird but it doesn't appear that musiciansfriend carries them anymore.

    Found one if you're quick, NFI and know nothing about the seller.

    Eastwood also makes one for their Mandocaster, which like your IV kit is Tele-inspired.

    The Access rectangular case is a good option. Eastwood also sells a case for its Mandocaster.

    I use Access Brand Cases for my custom built Tele styles. I make an extra pad to place under the body, to take up the needed space for proper fit to a solid body electric.

    Todd,
    You might want to try an ad on the Cafe' classifieds (Wanted)? There is probably a good chance that you'll get some responses?

    I've been looking myself and the only thing that I've found is the Eastman--I know it's an Eastman because it says "EASTMAN" in giant letters right across it. My idea of a "Fender" case is this nice cool looking rectangular tweed case or after that plain gray or black. The Access case looks like it's getting close but it would be nice to have one fit with having to anything else.

    I have these "vintage style" fenderesque cases custom made for my electrics by GWW/Ameritage. If this is what you're looking for Email me for info.

    Jon, I like that case.

    Here is the case I had made by Cedar Creek Cases for my E-manndo, they are TKL's custom case division.

    Musicians Friend has some "Scratch 'n' Dent" Fender emando cases in stock. I have no idea how many but I just ordered one for myself.
