    Default Hard case for 60s Martin Style O??

    Can anyone recommend a hard shell case that is a good fit for a 60s Martin Style O?

    The black archtop Guardian case, with cushy green velour interior is a very nice case, and fit my Martin Style 0 like a glove. Not too long either, I don't like too much extra/wasted room above the headstock, as many cheaper soprano cases seem to have. Here's an ebay pic, with another brand uke inside.

    I second the Guardian case. Pretty perfect. I believe you have to order the "vintage" model to get the arch top. Once I mistakenly ordered the Guardian soprano case and got a flat top.

    The pic I showed from ebay is a used Cordoba soprano in the nice Guardian case, now for sale for $140.00 shipped, if at all interested in both a uke & case.

    The Gator cases work really well and fit nicely, both the Journeyman and the Black case of similar style.

    I have the Gator journeyman for an S1 and it fits great.

    I have the cheap soprano tweed case from eBay too, it's huge, and a sop floats around in there. In fact, my concert Flea fits in there perfectly.
