MONO M80 Vertigo Electric Guitar Case
We've seen it (and done it) hundreds of times: grabbing the guitar out of the side of a partially unzipped case while standing up. We do this to save space, to save time, or to save our backs. 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 we went ahead and redesigned the Headlock for automatic neck support. Then we created The Boot, a rubber sole designed for unsurpassed protection against vertical drops. The game has changed.
This case is designed to fit all standard body electric guitars including Fenders® like Teles® and Strats®, Gibsons® like Les Pauls® and SGs®, Ibanez, ESP. Also fits some not-so-standard guitars. The molded Vertigo Headlock fits standard-width guitar necks.
DROP-PROOF: 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. Despite its serious design, the Vertigo just wants to have fun.
STRAP PIN PROTECTION: The insole/outsole combination of The Boot™ design keeps the strap pin off the ground even during hard vertical drops.
IMPACT DEFLECTION: Integral ABS panels deliver hardcase protection at a fraction of the weight. (MONO cases weigh in at about 75% less than their hardcase counterparts.) The reinforced outer shell of the Vertigo™ absorbs and deflects hard imact away from the vulnerable areas of the guitar.
TICK-READY: M80 cases come equipped with the triple D-ring attachments required for the optional Guitar Tick™, the modular tool case designed to extend the storage capacity of your guitar case.
PLUG AND PLAY: Everything in its place. Specialized storage compartments put your gear right where you need it. Deep gussets make sure your small items stay put.
THE LITTLE THINGS: A small interior mesh pocket keeps those little, critical items close at hand.
WEAR IT OUT: We build our cases to military specs, using only high-test materials with extreme resistance to abrasion and the elements. Inside, the plush lining protects delicate custom finishes. Outside, the water-resistent Sharkskin™ shell keeps you on the move, rain or shine.
RIVETED HANDLES: Rock solid, industrial webbing handles come standard on MONO cases. Bar-tack stitching and steel rivets reinforce for strength, while high grade webbing provides a super comfortable grip.
DOUBLE STEEL ZIPPERS: Powder-coated steel zipper pulls with self-healing nylon zippers are standard on all compartments. Double zippers also double the lifespan of each pocket.
HARD-WEARING SOLE: The Vertigo™ features a molded rubber sole and piping made of Hypalon - the same industrial rubber used to create inflatable military rafts. This sole simply does not wear out.
