MONO M80 Vertigo Semi-Hollow Case
Combining manufacturing methods from military, footwear and extreme outdoor industries, the Vertigo™ represents not only superior guitar protection, but a technological advancement in luggage design. The award-winning Top-Loading™ design of a the Vertigo allows for easy access to the guitar while in a standing position (patents pending). The Boot™ on the bottom uses sneaker technology to protect the guitar against vertical drops. The automatic Headlock™ grips the guitar inside suspending the headstock and neck during transit. The Vertigo is light, fast, sleek and rugged. Thanks to some serious design, traveling with a guitar has never been this fun.
This case is designed to fit most semi-hollow guitars including Gibson® ES-335 style bodies. Also fits some not-so-standard guitars.
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.
