The Mono Cases M80 Acoustic Guitar Hybrid Case is one of the lightest, thinnest, strongest,and most versatile carrying cases for professional musicians. A hybrid case-looks and feels like a gig bag, protects like a case-featuring an ultra light laminated foam shell with strategically placed ABS panels, the M80 provides unmatched protection for your most prized guitars. Smart features like Clip/Tuck straps make for easy airport travel, while the bag's streamlined profile helps you slip through the crowds.
Inside the M80 guitar case, the patented neckbrace suspends the guitar's headstock, protecting it from impacts that could otherwise snap the neck. An oversized fastening strap quickly secures the guitar neck against a specialized high-density foam block keeping the tuning pegs away from the sides of the case. The guitar's strap pin is protected by a bumper system of high-density foam, industrial rubber and ABS "eet, diverting vertical impact up and around the body of the guitar.
Constructed with high-tech materials and triple reinforced stitching the Mono Cases dreadnought guitar case is extremely durable. The M80 acoustic guitar case has a waterproof outer shell, steel riveted handle and shoulder straps, industrial rubber sole and piping, and oversized ergonomic zippers.

I'm very impressed with the quality & excellent design of the MONO M80 Dreadnought Guitar Hybrid Case. It protects about as well as a case, but is light & very portable & has lots of well-thought-out features, such as a pouch on the underside for papers/sheet music & a place inside the main pouch to hold patch cables. It's pricey, but it's worth it to have this top-of-the-line gig bag.
The quality of this bag is phenomenal. The detail put into every aspect has been very well designed. I also have the M80 Tenor Ukulele bag so I was familiar with the features, however, didn't realize that the M80 Dreadnought was as bulky as it is. It's a little bulkier than I expected because I was comparing it to the Taylor Hard Bag and Taylor Gig Bag that I currently owned, but this is not one bit of a problem and just more of a surprise than anything. Frankly, the bulkier size is a tribute to it's great protection of the padding which gives me the piece of mind when carrying my Taylor 700 series to gigs - I HAVE NO WORRIES! Great bag, definitely worth every penny. Just note, if you're looking of a less bulky bag with thinner padding that doesn't protect too well and is just a "carrying case" - do not buy this product - THAT IS NOT THE WAY THIS PRODUCT WAS DESIGNED. ...

In the past, I've always kept and transported my acoustics in their hard shell cases. But without a car in the city, it's a drag! Especially when I also have to carry a second guitar, and sometimes an amp, and/or a PA, plus some cables. So I decided to get a light-weight "soft" case that I can throw on my back for my acoustic from either Reunion Blues or MONO. I have a Reunion Blues case for my electric, and I love it (5 stars). But soon after I purchased an R.B. model for my acoustic, I returned it, since I felt it was too big -- When it was on my back, I was bumping my way around the subway and the tight-spaced restaurants/bars where I perform. Plus it took up a lot of space in my closet. So I decided to try a MONO. I've had it for a month, and I am very happy with it. The Mono case is not small, but it is an inch or two shorter and thinner than the Reunion Blues case. And this makes a big difference to me. It has plenty-o-pockets. I keep everything I need for an acoustic gig in the case -- 2 guitar cables, a couple PA cables, a tuner, and a fold-up guitar stand, plus my picks, capo, strings, string-changing tools, mini flash light, wallet, keys, and cheat sheet. But the real test for this case was when my guitar (a $3K Martin) fell over while it was inside. There was absolutely no damage to my guitar! I admit that the R.B.case is stronger/harder then the MONO, and it is cheaper than the MONO. Thus, I can see why someone would pick it over a MONO. But the slightly smaller size makes me choose the Mono for my beloved acoustic. (Also check out the style of the MONO vs. the R.B. You may or may not prefer this.)
Great case! Lightweight, lots of well thought out storage and extremely well built. I bought this hoping I could use it for both my Collings 0M2H and Taylor 814 (grand auditorium) and I was not disappointed! Even though the 0M2H seems a bit on the small side for the case, it does not rattle around once you strap down the neck. And did I mention ergonomic? This case is a dream to carry with many options by handle, over shoulder, on back.....
