Overview

The M80 electric guitar case is among the lightest, thinnest, strongest, most versatile carrying solution for the professional guitarist. This hybrid guitar case-looks and feels like a gig bag, protects like a case- features an ultralight laminated foam shell with strategically placed ABS panels, providing an unmatched level of protection for your most prized investments. Smart features like the Clip/Tuck straps make for easy airport travel, while the streamlined profile helps you slip through the crowds.

Inside the case, the patented neck-brace design suspends the guitar's headstock, protecting it from impacts that could otherwise snap the neck. An oversized strap quickly secures the neck against a specialized high-density foam block, which also keeps the tuning pegs away from the sides of the case during transport. On the bottom of the case the guitar's strap pin is protected by a bumper system of high-density foam, industrial rubber, and ABS feet, diverting impact up and around the body of the guitar on vertical drops.

Constructed with high-tech materials and triple-reinforced stitching this case is an extremely durable product. The Mono M80 electric guitar case features a waterproof outer shell, steel riveted handle and shoulder straps, industrial rubber sole and piping, and oversized ergonomic zippers. Wear it well.

Overall, this is still a very nice case. I've traveled with it on airplanes, buses, and subways. I use it as my main storage for two of my guitars, and I use it every day. Had it not been for the ripped zipper and the issue with the bottom padding not being thick/supportive enough, I would have given it a 9-10 rating. However, those are serious concerns to me.
I own two of these cases and basically don't use the hard-shell cases anymore. It has a very nice thick padding, high quality plush lining, a brace for the guitar neck, plenty of room in the pockets. Lots of nice little details such as a little pocket for picks built into the velcro strap that goes over the neck brace. Pockets open easily and you can fit a laptop in the large outer pocket. Or a couple of scoring notepads plus a couple of guitar cables, etc. The pocket opens easily and has a bulge construction so that you can actually pull it out and open it wide which makes it easy to get stuff in and out of it. The two-way zipper is a nice touch.
This is where I'm disappointed with these cases. On my newest case (about 6 months old), the zipper for the little pocket up at the headstock has ripped from the seam at the top. About 1" of it. It still works, but it's a little harder to close, and obviously, small items could fall out of it if the case was laying with the headstock down. My other disappointment is the bottom padding. It has collapsed where the strap peg rests on it. If I'm not really careful when I put the case down, I hear the strap peg hit the hard floor, and it gives me the chills every time it happens as I envision the wood on my precious strat split. Luckily it hasn't happened so far, but it's VERY annoying that a case that is otherwise so well thought out has this blatant design flaw. It's just unacceptable. I hope the designers at Mono read these reviews and take them to heart.
It's clearly one of the more expensive softcases out there. And with the aforementioned issues I've had with mine, I can't really give it a better rating.

NOT RECOMMENDED: For me the M80 Electric Guitar Case was a major disappointment and I returned it within 24 hours. The large front pocket zipper would zip but it would not close. The zipper was also seriously undersized in my opinion. Therefore, I would never trust the case with either my iPad or MacBook Air in the front pocket. It is about the most expensive soft case available but it does not have the most quality. (I then purchased the newly released Gator soft case from Guitar Center for about $100 less than the M80. The new Gator is an amazing case with strong zippers everywhere, it looks tight, and it feels expensive inside & out with super-strong carrying straps. It is a perfect fit for my new Sterling Stingray, as well!) In addition, another design flaw of the M80 is this. The neck rest inside the M80 rides ridiculously high. It pitches the guitar upward at a weird angle. I felt and saw the extra pressure of the top of the case pressing onto the headstock after it was closed and this made no sense. Who in their right mind would want their guitar neck setting at an upward angle in a stupid case that pushed their headstock up until it bulged outward against the front of the case? It was screaming, "Break me! Break me!" The M80 looks inexpensive. Also, if one views customer experiences with Mono on YouTube, it will be difficult to want their product even if it was free. I was fortunate that I purchased the M80 at Guitar Center and the return was super easy. Thank you, Guitar Center!

                Comments about MONO M80 Electric Guitar Case:

                High quality case that is hard to call a "bag" because of how sturdy it is. I bought this case for use traveling, and primarily for flying as it does fit in the overhead on smaller planes. Have flown with it a few times and had no issues

                Ample storage in the front (a few small items in the zipper compartment, 2 instrument cables, and a pedal if you're careful) and top compartment (set of strings, tuner, pencil, business cards, capo, and a small notebook).

                I've used this case to carry guitars of differing shapes:
                - Gibson 339 (have to carefully align strap pin on bottom in order to sit correctly while zipping closed)
                - LP (some empty space allowed guitar to shift side-to-side inside the case while laying flat)
                - Strat (fits very easily, no movement)

                One of my guitars has push/push pots, and I often find the knobs in the up position after opening the case. Not a deal breaker but just a heads up for anyone who might have similar electronics.

                    I added a coupon code and paid so little for this case. Musician's Friend is the cat's meow.

                    Any other cheapie case will run you one benjamin and for just a little more you have a world class case.

                    The pockets in this thing are awesome and endless.

                    I love the neck support. And I've seen youtube videos where they throw this case with guitar inside out a 2 story window and nothing breaks.

                    Very impressive design.

                          The zipper for the top pocket was very poorly installed. It took two hands and a lot of jiggling to get it to close or open. This case provides very good protection and was otherwise well made, but I sent it back and opted for the cheaper Mono Sleeve case which is simpler and less zipper-reliant.

                            I emailed the folks at Mono and was informed that ALL of their electric guitar gig bags fit Fender Jags and Jazzmasters. None of the sites with the so-called "case finder" search engines ever convey this. I have a Johnny Marr Jag and the "retro case" it came with is too big and clunky (while not offering the protection of the SKBs I got with my other Fenders). I own several Protec Contego model gig bags, which are hybrids like the Mono. They are great cases and about half the price of the M80. However, like so many gig bags, the Protec does not accommodate the dimensions of a Jag. They are geared to Telecaster and Strat style bodies. The Mono M80 fits my Jag nicely. The neck cradle is great. It seems a bit lighter than the Protec. It is a comfortable well-designed bag, with a sleek modern look. My only beef is with the padding on the bottom end of the bag, which is inside where the strap pin sits. I was surprised that the bottom padding on a bag that is as expensive as the M80 was not nearly as substantial as that on my Protecs. Although, this has not proven to be a problem for me, as I don't put it through the rigors of the road, as some of you might. So, for me, I am happy to have a quality bag that fits and protects my Jag. It's a tad spendy but worth it for the protection it affords my bigger investment. I would recommend that other Jag and Jazzmaster owners check out the Mono line. It is too bad that Mono and their online vendors don't promote the fact that their gig bags provide a nice option for toting, storing and protecting our "offset guitars." Thus, I am trying to spread the word.
