Mono Cases has unveiled the Vertigo, which they state is the world’s first top-loading instrument case. Available in bass and guitar models, the design unzips from the headstock down on both sides for quicker access to your axe.
The company’s Headlock neck suspension system got a redesign for the Vertigo and no longer requires strapping or buckling. It works by resting the neck in the base of the Headlock, then zipping up the case. The top section of the system then clamps down, holding your bass firmly in place.
A brand new feature is The Boot, which takes a cue from the footwear industry and provides a cushioned inside with extra space for the strap button while the outside features a custom molded rubber outsole. The result provides a resilient bottom to the case while offering further protection from vertical drops.
Other features include a deep front pocket for storage, steel riveted handles, and a waterproof Sharkskin shell with industrial rubber piping. It comes in Jet Black or Steel Gray.
Mono says the Vertigo Bass Guitar Case fits standard electric bass guitars including Fender, Ibanez, Warwick, Tobias, and Yamaha. It’s available now for $205. For more info, check out the Mono Cases website.
