“Hands-down the best cases I have ever used. You’ll rarely see me without my MONO.”

Vertigo Electric Bass (Black)
Top-loading hybrid design.
We've seen it (and done it) hundreds of times: grabbing the guitar out of the side of a partially unzipped case while standing up. We do this to save space, to save time, or to save our backs. This observation became the driving concept behind the Vertigo™, the world's first top-loading guitar case. The top loading feature might have been enough, but we went ahead and redesigned the Headlock™ for automatic neck support. Then we created The Boot™, a rubber sole designed for unsurpassed protection against vertical drops. The game has changed.
360° Protection
Lock and Load
The Vertigo™ features a fully redesigned Headlock™ neck suspension system. No strapping, buckling, or belting required. No extra steps. Just throw your bass in and the neck finds a natural resting point in the base of the Headlock™. Then zip the case up and the top section of the Headlock™ automatically clamps down over your bass, holding it firmly in place. Your headstock is now fully protected against backward drops and side-to-side impact. Lightning fast!
Drop-proof
Another first of its kind, The Boot™ takes guitar protection to a new level. Using manufacturing technologies from the footwear industry, the Vertigo™ bounces off of concrete like a pair of cross trainers. With its custom molded rubber outsole and EVA insole, The Boot™ also protects strap pins of all shapes and sizes from those nasty vertical drops. Travel in confidence and style. It's a good look.
Strap pin protection
Hi-density foam bumpers divert vertical impact out and around the case, away from the strap pin.
Impact deflection
Integral ABS panels deliver hardcase protection at a fraction of the weight. (MONO cases weigh in at about 75% less than their hardcase counterparts.) The reinforced outer shell of the Vertigo™ absorbs and deflects hard impact away from the vulnerable areas of the guitar.
Smart Storage
Tick-ready
The Vertigo™ comes equipped with the triple D-ring attachments required for the optional Guitar Tick™ the modular tool case designed to extend the storage capacity of your guitar case. The Guitar Tick seamlessly and securely attaches to the Vertigo as shown. All Vertigo Guitar cases are now shipped Tick-ready (some older cases may not be - please contact support if you have questions about the Tick-compatibility of your MONO case).
Plug and play
Everything in its place. Specialized storage compartments put your gear right where you need it. Deep gussets make sure your small items stay put.
The Little Things
A small interior mesh pocket keeps those little, critical items close at hand.
Built to last
Wear it out
We build our cases to military specs, using only high-test materials with extreme resistance to abrasion and the elements. Inside, the plush lining protects delicate custom finishes. Outside, the water-resistent Sharkskin™ shell keeps you on the move, rain or shine. 100% animal free.
RIVETED HANDLE
Rock solid, industrial webbing handles come standard on MONO cases. Bar-tack stitching and steel rivets reinforce for strength, while high grade webbing provides a super comfortable grip.
HARD-WEARING SOLE
The Vertigo™ features a molded rubber sole and piping made of Hypalon - the same industrial rubber used to create inflatable military rafts. This sole simply does not wear out.
DOUBLE ZIPPERS
Powder-coated steel zipper pulls with self-healing nylon zippers are standard on all compartments. Double zippers also double the lifespan of each pocket.
Dimensions & fitting
Like a glove
These measurements represent the inner capacity of the case. If you are unsure about the fit for your guitar, make sure it does not exceed any of the maximum dimensions shown just to be safe. This case is designed to fit all standard body electric guitars including Fenders like Teles and Strats, Gibsons like Les Pauls and SGs, Ibanez, ESP. Also fits some not-so-standard guitars. The molded Vertigo Headlock fits standard and wide-width guitar necks (6, 7 and 8 strings). Please check with support if you are unsure about the fit for your particular bass.
