Hi everyone,

I've been trying to solve the mystery of this case for a while now. It's a Pro-Tec hard foam case in excellent condition. It was sold to me as a baritone case but it's a touch too small in the lower bout for a standard (10") bari. A tenor fits in with a little more wiggle room than you might like, though it's certainly doable. I don't know if this was a mistake, or something built for a custom uke, or intended for another instrument altogether. The interior dimensions are as follows:

total length: 30"
body length: 13"
upper bout: 8.5" (that's the width at the spot where the upper bout would align, more or less; it narrows to 8" at the top of the body space, where it meets the neck support area)
lower bout: 9.5"

So if you've got a uke (or something else) that fits this, or maybe you've got a tenor and like to carry around a change of t-shirt and are always frustrated that it doesn't fit into your standard tenor case, how about you take this off my hands for $25 shipped in the CONUS?

I had a Kanile'a K1 that was a bit too big for some cases. Maybe this one is good for that particular uke.

It had a Kamaka Bari in it originally...

I think it's a soprano tuba case...?

Thanks ukegirl - I feel like a doofus for not thinking to ask you about it in the first place!
