Hi All:I see the last time this was discussed was over 5 years ago, so I apologize if it is old news. I tried all my existing banjo cases and the only case that fits it in the house is a guitar gig…Continue
"If you can find a new one on Amazon, I believe you might be able to return it by asking the seller for a printed return label (paid shipping) if it doesn't fit. Worth investigating, be sure to review the seller's return policies."
"Well, I was convinced that the Goldtone gig bag was the best solution but I just checked the shipping from Elderly and I must have missed something because Fedex will ship it for about $26. So I ordered the shopworn one and hope that it will be…"

"Strumelia: do I have to have authentic 19th century paisley fabric? Maybe I could take great grandma's quilt and make a gig bag from that. :-)
The banjo came with a very thin cloth sack. I have a feeling that the seller was a civil war…"
"This is a strange dilemma. I was very prepared to buy the Gold Tone case mentioned below and sold from Elderly. A friend has a tenor banjp case by them and they are nice and thick. Elderly even has a shopworn one with a missing tab on the zipper for…"
