I'd have to get one of those portable amps, and I'm outta money now.

I did contact Cedar Creek for a case, and a basic case for this thing would set me back

$350.00!!!
That's an ouch. No case, no travel. Any suggestions...
Hey, I think I'll start a new thread.

Have you considered looking for an export packer, see what they have, put a lock and hinges on a flat plywood box?

Just a thought.

It's a gas can , mount it on back of your jeep . I think your best bet is to make your own .

Thanks for the looksee, that was on a Glyph mezzo-soprano "Patricia" . It's a bit larger than soprano, and as nice as that uke is, I still gravitate to the sopranos
