I happen to be one of those Grandparents; who's Grandkids just seem to love Grandpaw's musical instruments,so no matter how expensive or cheap they may be..instruments need protection!! I purchased this case for my Rogue "A" style Mandolin (which I also purchased at Musiciansfriend.com). I was amazed at how well it fitted to my Mandolin. The inside padding is much thicker and softer than I imagined from the pictures. The lid fits nice and snug against the bridge, and the material is soft enough to form itself to the shape of the top without too much pressure. This case even has a keyed lock on the center latch(that helps keep the kids out of it when you're not looking).
I would NOT recommend this case for the "F" style mandolin..the body would be a little too wide at the top. And of course if you have an expensive Mandolin ,like a Washburn or Gibson, You're gonna want to get a case specially made for that Brand Name instrument,(the big boys always have cases specially built to fit their instruments)
If you're a beginner or slightly experienced player..remember..You always look more professional when you show up with your instruments in a nice looking case...people wonder what ya got in there and can't wait till you open up the case.

Our Washburn M1S "A" style mandolin was a little too thick for the case depth. The case lid put pressure on the instrument's bridge. This might improve over time when the case padding takes the instrument's shape, but it is not a great situation.

We purchased the same brand case for a ukulele and it is fine. It provides reasonable protection with no quality or fit issues. The mandolin case had many of the issues noted by other reviewers. The latches were misaligned, with the plating peeling off. The lid was warped and the outside vinyl covering was misapplied. Allowing for the low price, the quality was still poor.

Musician's Friend was great about exchanging it for the Washburn case specific to our instrument. Yes, we had to pay about twice the price, but the fit should be exact with fewer manufacturing issues.

      I've been looking for a protective case for my old Slingerland banjo ukulele. With minor modifications including a thin layer of carpet and one simple block of foam I have a near perfect case. Maybell has never been more comfortable.

            This case seems pretty good for the price. It seems very sturdy and well built. However, it is a little difficult to close and fits very tightly against my son's mandolin. All things considered, it seems like a good deal.

                I got this as a case to use with any of several different A style Mandolins when I take them places where I want more than a gig bag for protection. On sale it was a great deal. It fits all my A style Arch tops.

                love the case but my ovation mandolin won't quite fit in it. I'm sure most mandolins fit nicely. I have bought lots of gear from musicians friend over the last twenty years , and this is one of my few disappointments. i'll live.
