    Curious to know if you've ever tried an oval hole Collings in yours. My MT2-0 feels like it's got a little bit deeper body than my f-style mandolins. (I'm sure the specs are easily available, but I've never looked them up.) I wonder if a Calton sized for an F-style would be very slightly undersized for an oval.

    I honestly don't know and wouldn't want to give you bad info. As you mentioned the specs should be easy to find, I would call, but that's just me. FWIW, both companies are in Austin and have a very close working relationship - templates of Collings instruments are taken to CC to insure proper fit - but can't confirm with certainty what you are interested in.

    The last two episodes of the Fretboard Journal podcast were about Calton cases. Excellent listening.

    Just got my new Calton. This is their new case that is wider to give the lower point more padding.

    That is great to see! How is the peghead/scroll clearance now? Inside pics maybe? And is that textured or smooth glitter?

    I am REALLY liking the added space on the larger side of the headstock scroll. I have often wondered what would happen if i had an “incident” and the case were to fall, or get knocked off of something.
    I also like the added space around the lower point.

    All glitter Calton Cases have a smooth finish.

    When ordering Glitter, there are two options, Smooth and Textured. See below:

    Very nice catch...originally it was smooth only as the glitter & a textured finish wasn’t having the ‘desired’ effect. They are adding so many great options!
