We've all seen it (and done it) hundreds of times: grabbing the guitar out of the side of a partially unzipped case while standing up. You do this to save space, to save time, or to save our backs. This observation became the driving concept behind the Vertigo, the world's first top-loading guitar case. The top loading feature might have been enough, but Mono went ahead and redesigned the Headlock for automatic neck support. Then they created The Boot, a rubber sole designed for unsurpassed protection against vertical drops.
The Vertigo features a fully redesigned Headlock neck suspension system. No strapping, buckling, or belting required. No extra steps. Just throw your guitar in and the neck finds a natural resting point in the base of the Headlock. Then zip the case up and the top section of the Headlock automatically clamps down over your guitar, holding it firmly in place. Your headstock is now fully protected against backward drops and side-to-side impact. Lightning fast!
Another first of its kind, The Boot takes guitar protection to a new level. Using manufacturing technologies from the footwear industry, the Vertigo bounces off of concrete like a pair of cross trainers. With its custom molded rubber outsole and EVA insole, The Boot also protects strap pins of all shapes and sizes from those nasty vertical drops. Travel in confidence and style. It's a good look.
A slick feature that you will come to love. The Vertigo does not open like a traditional guitar case. Its design allows you to quickly unzip the case and pull your guitar out from the top. This is enabled by a hidden diagonal hinge on the front panel of the case. Once unzipped, the case naturally opens out and to the right. No need to lay your guitar case down on the floor. Stop bending over. Nobody wants to see that. Take a stand!
BUILT TO MOVE
Everything in its place. Specialized storage compartments put your gear right where you need it. Deep gussets make sure your small items stay put. And the hidden upper pocket keeps your wallet, keys, and cell concealed on that subway ride.

As an owner of 3 Mono M80 bags, the Vertigo is not unfamiliar, yet is pleasantly lighter since it has fewer pockets that I can stuff full ;-) The bag is well constructed and a good alternative to carrying the traditional wood and tolex case to your show. Besides, have you been able to carry that wood case over your shoulder?
