    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Glass, I don't know if it was you but someone brought a Loar from back east to Bakersfield or maybe it was Symposium in a Stew-Mac. Also another Loar owner painted a Stew-Mac white. If I'm...

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    I've seen a baggage guy lifting and slamming every piece of luggage onto the conveyor when just placing it would be much easier on him.
    But I bet a lot of damage comes from falls from conveyors...

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Think about what Bill Monroe's mandolin must have gone through over the years in what by todays standards was not a great case. In 1980 I flew with my first mandolin in a really bad faux Loar case...

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    I'm going to do one more and quit.
    I'll go ahead and blaspheme and say this is closer to what Calton offers than I think most realize. What Crossrock has done is to me very similar to what...

    Me again. Doug, I guess I don't see why it wouldn't be pretty if you were forced to check this. I'm old and have live through the days when cases were either flimsy or heavy and still flimsy. With...

    My case of choice for the last 20 years was the one Stew Mac sold for about 10 years. The same basic thing is still available as a Gator but it's not nearly well appointed as what Stew Mac offered. ...

    Just realized it will do this. Probably best to be right there with it but could be nice when your standing in a line or something.

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Perfection is hard to come by. I'm going to try not to drop it.
    Maybe they tried it with a short neck oval. The socks might be a good idea if you were going to fly with it.

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Here's my review. Love it! OK, the spacer/pillow is a bit weird but with old Gibson oval A's out there I get it. My mandolin would work without but is really snug with. May try Velcro.
    The latches...

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Something quite suspicious going on. It would be highly unusual to sell seconds without marking them as such. It also appears these are all direct sales from the company, not like one dealer is...

    Following up I ordered the fiberglass because of the hard rubber-plastic closure seams as opposed to the metal on the ABS.

    Yeah, I really like the look of the silver ABS A style but worry about does the Tongard fit and is there enough bridge clearance.

    Re: Gibson doubleneck

    My fantasy instrument is a pre-war D-28 with a hole cut in the shoulder the size of a mandolin and a Loar stuffed into it with the lower F-hole in the soundbox of the guitar. It's all held together...

    But they're not as rare as you might think.
