Hayward, Calif. - Guardian is now shipping the long-awaited Professional Fiberglass Mandolin Case (CG-065-M-LGY), which has the impact-resistant, water-repellent and durable features of similar cases three times the price.

The shell of the Professional Fiberglass Mandolin Case is one of the thickest available, with an arched top offering superior protection.

The water-resistant valance allows safe traveling in all types of weather. Extra-strong nickel-plated latches and one lock help keep instruments secure, and the carefully balanced leather handle makes carrying it a pleasure.

The Professional Fiberglass case offers the ultimate in interior protection as well, with a maroon crushed velvet interior and multiple padding thicknesses for maximum safety and fit. Ultra dense foam cushions the sides of the instrument body, and supports it with medium density foam underneath. Extra soft foam helps to hold down the neck for the perfect amount of both cushion and protection.

The fiberglass case fits most F and A-model mandolins and comes with a street price of $179.99. Each case comes with Guardian's industry-leading lifetime warranty.

Does anyone know if this will be available for the A style mandolins ?

It is body-agnostic. It has a symetrical cutout abovev the body, so it should be able to accomodate A's, F's, and even two-points, although short-neck instruments might have a challenge as with other cases with large internal gear compartments. (See the current "Guardian Flight Case" thread for pics, as well as the mixed first-hand reviews about them.)
