Mono Vertigo Semi-Hollow Guitar Case, Black
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 Vertigo™ is light, fast, sleek and rugged. Thanks to some serious design, traveling with a guitar has never been this fun.
GRAB AND GO
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 guitar out from the top. This is enabled by a hidden diagonal hinge on the front panel of the case. Once unzipped, the case naturally opens out and to the right. No need to lay your guitar case down on the floor. Take a stand.
LOCK AND LOAD
The Vertigo™ features a fully redesigned Headlock® neck suspension system. No strapping, buckling, or belting required. No extra steps. Just throw your guitar 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 the neck, holding it firmly in place. Your headstock is now fully protected against backward drops and side-to-side impact. Lightning fast!
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* 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.
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.
*Offset guitar strap pins may receive less protection from The Boot®
Most MONO cases come equipped with the triple D-ring attachments required for the optional Classic Tick Accessory Case, the modular tool case designed to extend the storage capacity of your guitar case. The Classic Tick Accessory Case 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.
BUILT TO LAST
WEAR IT OUT
MONO cases are built 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.
RIVETED HANDLE & HARD-WEARING SOLE
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.
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.
