    Default Help Identifying a Case

    Hello! I am wondering if there are any case experts who might be able to help me identify this case that my 2007 Ellis F5 came in. I bought the mando used so I am not sure if it is the original one. The only distinguishing mark is a pull tab on the accessory compartment that says "Case made in Canada." It is coated in tweed that looks like the sort used on old Fender guitar amps.

    Hopefully the photos help:

    It's made by TKL. It very likely is the case that came with the instrument from Ellis.

    Elderly and a few others sold those "Made in Canada" cases for years with the tweed covering and the shag carpet interior.

    Have very similar case made by Guardian, bought at Appalachian Music Store (now sadly gone, due to C-19) in Boone, NC some time back.
