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.
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.
Hi-density foam bumpers divert vertical impacts out and around the case, away from the strap pin.
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 impact away from the vulnerable areas of the guitar.
Most MONO cases come equipped with the triple D-ring attachments required for the optional The Tick™ the modular tool case designed to extend the storage capacity of your guitar case. The Tick seamlessly and securely attaches to the case as shown. Some older cases may not be Tick-ready - please contact support if you have questions about the Tick-compatibility of your MONO case.
Everything in its place. Specialized storage compartments put your gear right where you need it. Deep gussets make sure your small items stay put.
BUILT TO LAST
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-resistant Sharkskin™ shell keeps you on the move, rain or shine. 100% animal free.
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.
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.
DIMENSIONS & FITTING
These measurements represent the inner capacity of the case. If you are unsure about the fit for your guitar, make sure it does not exceed any of the maximum dimensions shown just to be safe. 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 and wide-width guitar necks (6, 7 and 8 strings). Please check with support if you are unsure about the fit for your particular bass.
