MONO make some fantastic tough but lightweight Gig bags, I’m a big fan, in fact I reviewed the MONO M80 back in August 2012. MONO have just announced a new slimline gig bag to their range called the Guitar Sleeve™.

“We wanted to challenge ourselves to create a super minimalist way to carry a guitar, while still providing a level of protection worthy of being called a MONO. So, we created the Guitar Sleeve and the Bass Sleeve” says MONO Founder and CEO, Daniel Kushner. “Nothing protects a guitar like our Vertigo™ hybrid case design, so we started there. We took some of the award-winning design features from the Vertigo and streamlined them to fit inside the Sleeve”.

The Guitar Sleeve and Bass Sleeve feature a slimmer variation of the Headlock™ – MONO’s patented neck suspension system. This slimmer Headlock is molded from solid, shock- absorbing EVA rubber to protect the neck and headstock from impact during falls. When your guitar is zipped-in, its neck is automatically secured inside the Headlock’s contoured groove.

Like the Vertigo, the Sleeves are also Top-Loading™ for quick, stand-up access. At the bottom, the Sleeves feature a super slim EVA insole to keep the body off the ground and protect the strap pin from bottoming-out when the Sleeve is put down too hard.

The Guitar Sleeve and Bass Sleeve are available in Jet Black and Ash color options. For pricing, availability and other information contact Dominant Music.
