I've heard it's a bright yellow custom Calton case.

I'm pretty sure it's made of unicorn skin, and is impervious to gravity.

I wasn't aware that Jake ever put his uke away long enough to necessitate a case.

It is bright yellow, I believe Calton (http://www.caltoncases.com/index.html)is correct.

Yeah you're right, it's a fully custom Calton case and costs a hell of a lot, around $1500 I think. All climate controlled and very strong.

Yep, they cost way more than the majority of ukes you sell. Everyone wants to be Jake. Bill Tapia used to carry his uke around in a brown bag. Maybe we should start selling those. I have tenor brown paper bags for $79 while they last.

What's up with Homeland Security wanting to know if you bought a 'ukulele case.

LOL!!!!

Seriously though, that is a very expensive case. I assume you can a comparable sturdy case for much less.

You can get decent cases for less, I have an Ameritage case which I think is the next step down and that costs $250. The Calton is fully custom and hand crafted to fit your instrument and is made of seamless fibreglass which is incredibly strong and really light. The interiors also fit the instrument perfectly so I guess that is why they are so expensive.

I checked and you can get a mandolin case from the factory for around $585 but they have no cases for ukes so it'd have to be custom, making it a lot more expensive! Especially with the climate control options.
