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.

    Very well made case. With a small amount of added padding to fit the shape of my instrument. This case is a perfect fit for a Banjolele.

        Excellent case but I didn't pay attention to depth on specifications, my inherited Framus mandolin would fit but wasn't comfortable with how much pressure was put on the bridge to close, my Fender Mandolin fit nicely, and the Framus fit in Fender case so it ended great for me, just double check your Mandolin's thickness

          I purchased this mandolin case for my Dad's Gibson A style mandolin. It fit perfect, lots of padding, great buckle locks. He was amazed at the inside padding and how secure it fit his mandolin. We are very pleased with this product and would definitely purchase again.

                      This case is an upgrade from what was essentially the original cardboard one from when I first purchased my mandolin. As I have become more adept at playing, I now bring it with me more often and needed something form-fitting and protective. This case puts my mind at ease for traveling/carrying.

                          I opened the box and was really surprised, my wife saw the case and asked if we could get her one for her guitar. As for my A-Style Mando, the fit is perfect. The fleecy cushioning inside is thick and I cannot imagine anything harming my axe using this case.
