Need an old case for a 1930 era Martin soprano ukulele.

I posed the same question a couple weeks ago and the advice I got from several of the vintage guys here on the forum was to buy a new case because the old ones, even if you can find one, don't really do a good job of protecting the Uke. The Stagg tweed was highly recommended and I got one from Butler Music for $40 with free shipping. My Martin fits it perfectly.

Not looking to start a new case vs old case holy war. Each man can choose what works best for him.

I choose an old case :)

tigershark, keep watching vintage ukes on Ebay. I've seen some old not expensive ukes in those cases. I know which one you are looking for. I got mine from a former member who sold me an old uke with that case. Sold the uke and for 40 bucks, I had a case that was worth more than the uke he sold me
