Overview

Smart case design.

There are three major components of the MONO bass case that distinguish it from other gig bags: the headlock, the boot and the top-loading feature. The idea for a new case design was born of the ages old scenario of grabbing the guitar out of the side of a partially unzipped case while standing up. MONO do this to save space, to save time, or to save our backs. It is the guitar gig bag equivalent of the apple falling on Newton's head.

This observation became the driving concept behind the Vertigo, the world's first top-loading guitar case. The top-loading feature might have been enough, but MONO also redesigned the Headlock for automatic neck support. Then they created The Boot, a rubber sole designed for unsurpassed protection against vertical drops.

Headlock
The Vertigo features a fully redesigned Headlock neck suspension system. No strapping, buckling, or belting required. No extra steps. Just throw your bass in and the neck finds a natural resting point in the base of the Headlock. Then zip the case up and the top section of the Headlock automatically clamps down over your bass, holding it firmly in place. Your headstock is now fully protected against backward drops and side-to-side impact. Lightning fast!

The Boot
Another first of its kind, The Boot takes guitar protection to a new level. Using manufacturing technologies from the footwear industry, the Vertigo bounces off of concrete like a pair of cross trainers. With its custom molded rubber outsole and EVA insole, The Boot also protects strap pins of all shapes and sizes from those nasty vertical drops. Travel in confidence and style. It's a good look.

Top-Loading
A slick feature that you will come to love. The Vertigo does not open like a traditional guitar case. Its design allows you to quickly unzip the case and pull your bass out from the top. A hidden diagonal hinge on the front panel of the case enables this. Once unzipped, the case naturally opens out and to the right. No need to lay your guitar case down on the floor.

The Vertigo is appointed with smart storage and rugged hardware for a life of travel. A deep front pocket keeps your essentials at-hand. The optional Guitar Tick provides room for much more. Steel riveted handles and dual zippers come standard, as does the Sharkskin water resistant outer shell.

Fits all standard electric bass guitars including Fender, Ibanez, Fodera, Warwick, Tobias, Yamaha. Also fits some not-so-standard bass guitars. This product is covered under MONO's 3 year limited liability warranty.
