    The one am looking for is with indented slim neck profile and silver binding and this type of handle.

    Funny, Stan ... I have been pondering buying the Crossrock ABS case for a few days & came upon your thread from some time ago where you posted the pics that were originally from Beau Hannam. Isn't this the same model as the one's on Elderly (LINK) & Amazon (CROSSROCK-BLUE ABS)?? I've seen them a few places, but finally decided that the aluminum trim ring -- I have some old Ovation guitars that have the same ring on the cases, which are fine with the composite back, but present a major obstacle to ease of in/out on the Kanile'a K-2T that I need the case for. Ya know ... a few MaiTai's, or let one of my pals play her ... & DONG ! ..another dinger in the body or mirror finish. I really like this (ABS) case too! Only potential negative issue (besides that obnoxious metal ring around the entire case..) I've come upon is off-gassing them for a few days to remove the sometimes crazily strong glue/chemical odor.

    Was actually looking at the Chinese fiberglass water-resistant (has a semi-efficient looking rubber seal anyway..) one's on Ebay for like $140'ish (CASE LINK) but no dimensions provided, I'm not sure I'd trust them on a response ... & as you know, the Kanile'a bouts are a bit wider than most tenor bodies..

    Anyhow, I ended up settling on the Crossrock Tweed model -- I'll have to add some rubber feet, a few brass D-rings & order a custom strap, as I like to be able to sling a few cases (always carrying too much crap..) around the shoulders, in addition to having the std handle. I had a friend that saw them (all the Crossrocks - specifically the Tweed model..) at NAMM & said the fit/finish was spot on ... unlike the Staggs, Uke Crazy etc..

    I certainly hope that's the 'case' - pun intended..

    Hope you find what you're looking for -- I suspect there's something different about the specific one you're inquiring about..

    Aloha, bud..

    Yes if you look at the particular case in the picture...the neck part is different of what they got online...it goes in on mine with a cutaway on the neck area, while the others are straight
    Yes I like the plastice for durability and the grey color does not show dirt or is not too flashy. it is a strong case and mine did not have any odor
    as for the aluminum binding..It has not given me a problem with nicking, just got to be careful...and I like the look..it's probally the best case I
    have and ever liked...way better than the black or tweed cases I own...I know they have guitar cases....I will send you a link from the company
    these particular one is rare and discontinued and I prefer them more...might be lighter with the neck cutaway too..one thing it does not have
    strap hookups but I dont use them either...http://www.globalsoundtechnology.com...lded_ABS_cases

    Aloha Stan,

    If you give Larry's Music Center in Kapa'a (Kauai) a call, I believe the cases they sell for their Kamoa ukes are crossrock cases and may be what you are looking for. Their cases are shown here.

    http://kamoaukulelecompany.com/info.php?id=3

    Just be prepared for the owner to explain to you that whatever ukulele you're putting into it is absolute rubbish compared to his Kamoa's (I had a really irritating visit when I made the mistake of stopping there to look at a Kanile'a tenor he had hanging up).

    Matt

    sorry...sometimes the Aloha does not rub off on some locals...

    I remember that story -- looooooooooong thread about the dude repetitively trying to get some warranty issues handled with Joe & Kristen. I'm likely SOL if I have any issues with the K-2 which require Joe's intervention, as I bought her pre-handled (used) but man, can she sing!! I think I am reserving a place, along with my 35 year old Les Paul, in my burial crypt -- perfect degree of curl (not so much as to require x-tra bracing, but enough to be visually outstanding!) on her..

    Somehow, I don't think Stan will have an issue with that at all - we can all only endeavor to have our own personal warehouse (pfft - me with my silly climate-controlled - on 'da mainland, anyway - geetar/uke room..) to house all of our Uke prizes.. Stan 'da man!

    Oh, & mahalo for the link, Stan - sending you a request..

    just to make it clear...

    I am not talking about problems with a Kanile'a K-2....that someone else had...
    not bashing Kanile'a in no way....

    I am saying someone had a problem buying a Kanile'a on Kauai...nothing to do with warranty etc....
