The type of case usually used for fiddles and guitars of the mid-19th century is often called a "coffin" case, owing to its resemblance to a coffin. Coffin cases were sometimes used for banjos as well. Here are some examples of some actual cases for period guitars and a pretty worn out fiddle case.
Shown below is a design diagram for the coffin cases that we will be selling. They will be made from 3/8" pine lined with heavy felt and will be available with either an oiled finish or painted black, per common practice. All joints will be super-strong box joints.
The cases will sell for about $325 for a guitar case and $220 for a fiddle case.
We will also be making heavy duty weather resistant fabric cases for guitars, fiddles, banjos and Irish harps.
All cases will be available at the Adventurous Muse Store.
