This is a very nice and well constructed case from what I've noticed so far. It seems very durable and has a very nice interior. The only issue I may have found is that my A-style mando has an arched body, so the fit is quite snug. I have to make sure that the mandolin is pushed down enough to close the lid. I haven't noticed any negative effects to the body or tuning yet, though, and it does keep my mandolin from moving around. it just seems a tight squeeze. A great case otherwise!

I bought this case online for my Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin. The case seemed well-built and the mandolin fit snugly, but the case is not deep enough, in my opinion. When I tried to close the case, it seemed as if it was too shallow to accommodate my mandolin. I could close the case by forcing it down, but I worried that there was not sufficient clearance for the instrument. I felt that there was too much pressure on the top of the bridge when the case was fully closed. Guitar Center didn't seem to think this was a problem, but nonetheless, the fit made me uneasy. I returned the case for peace of mind. For now, I'm using my tennis racquet cover temporarily.

This is a nice solid, plush case well worth the money. It even has a locking latch in front, along with two normal latches on either side.

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

I bought this case as a present for my dad on Father's Day. He loves the quality of it, and it fits his mandolin perfectly. It's a great case at a great price, and it makes the perfect gift. The stylish black interior is soft and plush while the exterior is very durable and comes with nice gold latches and stitching to dress it up. The item was shipped quickly and packaged well.

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

      When I started looking for a case for My A9 mandolin, I was hesitant to spend a bunch of money because at times I am incredibly cheap. I mean, when you've got a $1500 mandolin, you'd think that a couple hundred bucks would be appropriate for a case, right? WRONG! Normally, it resides on a rack in the corner of the room, exposed to the elements and all the hazards that go along with having 3 small humans in the house, but hey, it's a musical instrument that is meant to be played, loved, and at times abused. This case was purchased solely for the sake of transporting my mandolin from one place to another without it being in my lap in the car anymore. Apparently, the police view playing a mandolin while driving is the same as texting or talking on a mobile phone. So now I got this cheap case to move toys around. I like it a lot. Well done, Guitar Center, for making good gear for actively playing cheapskates like myself.

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

      For the price this case offers more protection and stability than a soft shell case. It has decent hardware and a nice fur-lined interior and a small storage area under the neck.

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

      I bought my first mandolin a couple of weeks ago and was looking for a decent case for it and came across this one. The reviews were good and the price was great. It received it a few days later and was pleasantly surprised. The case is well padded and my A-style mando fits super snug. If it were even slightly bigger it would not fit. Overall I am very pleased and my friends think I spent twice as much for this case!

      Very Nice Case for the Money

      By BRIAN

      from Oregon

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

      After reading other reviews about how some mandolins don't fit in this case, I thought that I would be returning them (I bought two). For the price I had to give it a try and I am glad I did. I have two Rogue RM-100A Mandolins (one in black and one in sunburst) and they both fit like a glove. It fits nice and snug around the body so it does not move around. The lid closes fine. The bridge does squish into the padding slightly but nothing that I would be concerned about at all. In fact, after a couple weeks being in the case I don't even notice it squishing. For the money you can hardly go wrong. I love these cases. As a side note, the accessory compartment under the neck is only big enough for picks and a small tuner. The extra set of strings I bought is too big for that compartment. I just put them under the tuning head in the case, no big deal. Excellent case, excellent price. Hesitate no more!

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

      no frills hard case, but it does what it should and the price was reasonable. was a tad worried at first when i tried to get it in as it didn't "just fit" but that's because the casing padding was just fluffy. Without much trouble i got it in and I know in time it will conform to the mandoline so I see it as a good thing, better it be snug than loose! I would advise anyone to get this case. I also liked that I could order online and pick up from local store.

                This is a really nice case for the price; a great value. I bought this for my Rogue RM-100A and found it to be a perfect, snug fit. The case feels rugged and solid. You won't worry about dropping your mandolin while it is safely stowed in this case.

                Good case especially for the money. I have noticed however that there are a few minor flaws. A Style Mando with arch fits very snug and latched are misaligned. Easily fixed.

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

                This A-Style Mandolin Case is a great buy. The craftmanship and looks would lead one to believe that it cost twice the actual cost. I bought this case for my father. He needed a new case for a mandolin that he had purchased in Austria while he was in the service in 1951. He was impressed and very pleased.

                I bought this for my Ibanez A style mandolin (actually the one shown in the graphic). I quickly found that the bridge was getting "squished" by the case, so I had to exchange for an arched case. The Mandolin just fit, I mean just! But I knew it was safe in there.
