From Bev SaundersI wish I had seen that review when I was reading up on them or I wouldn't have bought it. Live and learn I guess...expensive lesson.

From Carlo BallaraWho was seller of your case? Surely they not only will have to refund your money, but pay to have your bows repaired?

From Bev SaundersRight now I'm not ready to name the seller. The seller is a shop that I've worked with and have been pleased with in the past. I've sent them an email and am waiting for a response. I might name them if they refuse to at least take the case back and refund my money.

On a better note, my luthier was able to sand the color off without messing up the balance of the bow. So it looks like I won't need to replace the tips right now. I was totally doing the happy dance coming out of the shop this morning.
From Emmanuel BorowskyThat sucks... Good cases are a worthwhile investment. If you are in need of a new case, I have a new Musafia for sale that is only $625 including shipping. This is not one of the Chinese made musafias, but rather a full Italian. I have a discussion thread in the commercial section for the case if you are interested.
