OVERVIEW

A lightweight case delivering heavyweight protection to your electric guitar.

The M80 electric guitar case is among the lightest, thinnest, strongest, most versatile carrying solution for the professional guitarist. This hybrid guitar case-looks and feels like a gig bag, protects like a case- features an ultralight laminated foam shell with strategically placed ABS panels, providing an unmatched level of protection for your most prized investments. Smart features like the Clip/Tuck straps make for easy airport travel, while the streamlined profile helps you slip through the crowds.

Inside the case, the patented neck-brace design suspends the guitar's headstock, protecting it from impacts that could otherwise snap the neck. An oversized strap quickly secures the neck against a specialized high-density foam block, which also keeps the tuning pegs away from the sides of the case during transport. On the bottom of the case the guitar's strap pin is protected by a bumper system of high-density foam, industrial rubber, and ABS feet, diverting impact up and around the body of the guitar on vertical drops.

Constructed with high-tech materials and triple-reinforced stitching this case is an extremely durable product. The Mono M80 electric guitar case features a waterproof outer shell, steel riveted handle and shoulder straps, industrial rubber sole and piping, and oversized ergonomic zippers. Wear it well.

FEATURES
  • Outside
  • Hybrid case design with ABS head and body impact panels
  • Waterproof sharkskin shell with industrial rubber sole and piping (PVC-free)
  • Clip/Tuck strap system with chest harness for on-the-fly 1- or 2-shoulder carrying

  • Steel rivet-reinforced handle and shoulder straps
  • Animal free
  • Inside
  • Integral Neckbrace design suspends headstock and tuners
  • Clear window pick pocket
  • Corner bumpers protect guitar body and strap pin against vertical drops

We dare you to try to wear this guitar case out.

Overall, this is still a very nice case. I've traveled with it on airplanes, buses, and subways. I use it as my main storage for two of my guitars, and I use it every day. Had it not been for the ripped zipper and the issue with the bottom padding not being thick/supportive enough, I would have given it a 9-10 rating. However, those are serious concerns to me.
I own two of these cases and basically don't use the hard-shell cases anymore. It has a very nice thick padding, high quality plush lining, a brace for the guitar neck, plenty of room in the pockets. Lots of nice little details such as a little pocket for picks built into the velcro strap that goes over the neck brace. Pockets open easily and you can fit a laptop in the large outer pocket. Or a couple of scoring notepads plus a couple of guitar cables, etc. The pocket opens easily and has a bulge construction so that you can actually pull it out and open it wide which makes it easy to get stuff in and out of it. The two-way zipper is a nice touch.
This is where I'm disappointed with these cases. On my newest case (about 6 months old), the zipper for the little pocket up at the headstock has ripped from the seam at the top. About 1" of it. It still works, but it's a little harder to close, and obviously, small items could fall out of it if the case was laying with the headstock down. My other disappointment is the bottom padding. It has collapsed where the strap peg rests on it. If I'm not really careful when I put the case down, I hear the strap peg hit the hard floor, and it gives me the chills every time it happens as I envision the wood on my precious strat split. Luckily it hasn't happened so far, but it's VERY annoying that a case that is otherwise so well thought out has this blatant design flaw. It's just unacceptable. I hope the designers at Mono read these reviews and take them to heart.
It's clearly one of the more expensive softcases out there. And with the aforementioned issues I've had with mine, I can't really give it a better rating.

The zipper for the top pocket was very poorly installed. It took two hands and a lot of jiggling to get it to close or open. This case provides very good protection and was otherwise well made, but I sent it back and opted for the cheaper Mono Sleeve case which is simpler and less zipper-reliant.

No Doubt About It

Comments about MONO M80 Electric Guitar Case:

I have owned them all, soft cases, gig bags, poly foam, and hard-shell, i thought my problems were over when i bought a hard-shell case, it was starting to wear and tear and around the time i got a new guitar that was too long for my hard case and so i purchased this case, and i have to say that this case is the absolute best case ive ever used, im not exactly super strong so the super comfy backpack straps are a dream come true since i usually have my arms full of gear, this case can hold a guitar, tons of cables, a power source to a pedal, headphones paper, a bottle of soda and anything else you could ever need in a case. its a gigging guitarist dream come true.

The best

By FS323

from New York City, NY

Comments about MONO M80 Electric Guitar Case:

The perfect score is not an exaggeration. This is the best soft case on the market. It is reinforced in all the right places, comfortable, well-designed, and it keeps your guitar perfectly safe. I had no problem watching the case tip over with a +$5,000 guitar in it. Waterproof too!Sure it seems pricey, but it is worth it.

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Guitar Case:

    This is a bag that is light and easy to shoulder, yet so tough that you feel as well protected as a hard case. Other reviewers have shared similar praise after putting it to the test with months of hard travel. The attention to detail is impressive and it really is as good as they say it is.

    Comments about MONO M80 Electric Guitar Case:

    About 2/3 the weight and approximately as bulky as an SKB shaped plastic hard case. The protection is as good as a gig bag is going to get. Every aspect of the design is elegantly functional and I can load it up with my guitar and all the stuff I normally carry (one trip -- guitar, laptop bag, amp). Compared to the Gator Slinger it replaced, many times better protection, twice the weight, twice the bulk, and probably more than twice the capacity for stuff. I like to use a single back strap and want it mounted high up on the bag to keep it from hitting the top of door ways and it is perfect (the Gator Slinger is good for this too, but the single strap is mounted on the side I don't prefer it on). At the end of the day, I almost sent it back because the Slinger may offer a lot less, but it is lighter and more compact.

      Good gig bag. Been using it for my strat at least twice a week for 5 months. So far, so good. Well made, holds the guitar nice & snug and gives as much protection as a gig bag can. I've had cheap gig bags in the past. Glad i spent the extra $$ for this. Definitely would recommend.

      Comments about MONO M80 Electric Guitar Case:

      Compact and lightweight. Looks very cool. I carry around my most precious guitars when traveling by plane. I listed 'poor protection' as a CON because somehow it feels like, for the price, they could do a little bit better; although certainly marginally. A little bit expensive, but definitely worth the cost considering the combination of compactness, protection and looks.
