Excellent case. Beautiful covering, quality latches, and nice, plush interior. Seals nicely for humidity control. Well worth the added cost to your purchase.

Great construction, but terrible odor
I bought this case to replace an older Oahu case on which the handle is coming apart. I selected the tweed design because I like the look.

The design and construction of this new case are excellent, really without equal this side of a Calton case. The lid fits perfectly, the latches are all even and tight, and the handle is a vast improvement over the old Oahu design. This case is a bit larger than the old one, but it came with an extra, moveable pad to tighten the fit.

I'd give this case 5 stars across the board, but it came with a strong odor, possibly from glue or solvent, that smells like cheap perfume. It's not unusual for new cases to have a bit of odor, and it usually fades quickly, but it's been five months now and the odor is still there despite extended use of Febreze, baking soda, activated charcoal, and warm sunlight. If I leave it open for a while the odor seems to fade, but the odor returns once the case has been closed for a few hours.

Worse, the odor made its way into the interior of my Pono MGT. I moved the uke back to the old case months ago, but the odor remains in the uke and I don't know how to get rid of it without possibly damaging the uke.

Bottom line: I don't recommend this case.

I wrote to customer service here about the problem a while back asking for possible solutions, but I haven't heard back yet; I expect they were backlogged with the holidays. I'm hopeful they have a better solution than I've been able to find.

Gorgeous case
This case is gorgeous! I did it as an upgrade and it is well worth the difference. The green tweed is really nice with the leather trim. The dark green plush interior makes the instrument look great. Highly recommended.
