Combining manufacturing methods from military, footwear and extreme outdoor industries, the Vertigo represents not only superior guitar protection, but a technological advancement in luggage design. The award-winning Top-Loading(TM) design of the Vertigo allows for easy access to the guitar while in a standing position (patents pending). The Boot(TM) on the bottom uses sneaker technology to protect the guitar against vertical drops. The automatic Headlock(TM) grips the guitar inside suspending the headstock and neck during transit. The Vertigo is light, fast, sleek and rugged. Thanks to some serious design, traveling with a guitar has never been this fun. 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.
The Vertigo features a fully redesigned Headlock neck suspension system. No strapping, buckling, or belting required. No extra steps. Just throw your guitar 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 guitar, holding it firmly in place. Your headstock is now fully protected against backward drops and side-to-side impact. Lightning fast!
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.
A slick feature that you will come to love: the Vertigo does not open like a traditional guitar case. Its design allows you to quickly unzip the case and pull your guitar out from the top. This is enabled by a hidden diagonal hinge on the front panel of the case. Once unzipped, the case naturally opens out and to the right. No need to lay your guitar case down on the floor. Stop bending over. Nobody wants to see that. Take a stand!
LIKE A GLOVE
