I bought this to replace the piece of junk that came with my Michael Kelly Festival Pack - great mandolin, terrible (&smelly) case. I took a chance on this case, realizing because of the price that it probably would not be very good. I was wrong, this case is definitely the best deal out there for an f style hardshell. Nice buckles, tough exterior, heavily padded and squishy interior that doesn't shed, and it is not smelly! Buy now!

See the Quality section. It does protect the instrument well which is what I wanted. I hope the warp will eventually go away.

I will say I have another one of these cases for an electric guitar with no problems and I think it will be around for years to come. Just don't know what happened to this one.
Good hardware, arched top (strength) and well padded.
I think this particular case was built on either a Monday or Friday afternoon. The hardware is crooked, the top has to be worked to get it to close (warped) and the leather flap used to open the storage pocket pulled loose the second time I opened it (it was not riveted all the way through the pocket door, just into the material only).

It does, however, do what I bought it for - protect the instrument and I have rivets and a rivet gun. It's too much of a pain to return it and try and get another one.
Would have given it a 10 except for the things I mentioned in the Quality section. I think, in the condition I received it, I should have only paid $29 vice $49.

The best buy out there in a case!

Comments about Musician's Gear F-Style Mandolin Hardshell Case:

This mandolin case is a steal at this price. It is a well made wooden case that offers great protection and beautiful plush padding. Even the latches are decent. It even has an arched top! This compares equally to my TKL mandolin case that was over twice this price. You will be very happy with this case. It has an good handle and a nice accessory compartment that is big enough to place a humidifier. You get hardshell case protection at a gig bag price. What more could you ask for?

Comments about Musician's Gear F-Style Mandolin Hardshell Case:

I bought an Epiphone MM-50 mandolin(F-style) at Guitar Center. The only cases they had were hard shells for $100.00. This one seems like a good value. Well made,soft interior and snug fit.

      I'm a Luther of F5 Mandolins, and have supplied this case with my Mandolins for a few years. I believe at this price range, this case gives you the most value for your money, and my customers always comment on the quality vs. cost. I will continue to use this case as long as it's available.

      Comments about Musician's Gear F-Style Mandolin Hardshell Case:

      The mandolin case fits my Fender model 63 mandolin pefectly.The latches are adequate and the Tolex covering is as good as on my other way more expensive guitar cases by TKL.The interior padding is very thick allowing no shifting of the mandolin at all.I am very plesed with the case and the great service that I received from the seller.

      Comments about Musician's Gear F-Style Mandolin Hardshell Case:

      I was actually looking for a padded gig bag when I saw this , was even a little skeptical. When I received the case, I was glad I didn't get the gig bag. It is well constructed and fits the instrument well and will fit better the longer the instrument is in it. I'm very satisfied with this purchase!

            It's a good quality case, but like many one-size-fits-all (A & F type body)it may actually not. I bought it for an Epiphone MM50 and it would fit, but the lower point had no 'space' and I could expect that section to wear over time. An A type would not have this issue.

                    This case is well made and looks nice. It seems pretty snug for my Epiphone F style (MM-50) mandolin at the top of the case for the headstock. It should provide good protection though.

                      Loar LM 520 just barely fits in this case, only about 1/4" or less clearance at the headstock. Well padded, hoping as the foam conforms to the mandolin it will be a better fit. Actually it's a great fit for my Loar LM 220 A style mando. Latches ar very slightly misaligned but I have found if you start at the rear latch and work forward it works pretty good. It is an archtop though it doesn't look like it in the pictures. Seems to be a solid case.

                                    This is a good looking, sturdy case, but I have one problem. Several of the tuning keys touch the inside of the case. I have included a picture. They don't press hard enough to do any damage, but sometimes I have to re-tune after using the case. My mando is a Loar LM-310F so your mileage may vary.

                                    It has been said that a mando player will spend half his life tuning his instrument and the other half playing out of tune.

                                        Comments about Musician's Gear F-Style Mandolin Hardshell Case:

                                        I was very impressed with the hard shell mandolin case that I purchased recently. It's very sturdy, has a soft interior where the instrument sits snugly, and has a small storage compartment large enough for a tuner and a few picks. The price was the best part! It works for me!
