Needed some adjustments.
The good/great: size, lightness, and attractiveness. The less than fabulous factor: the description states that the case accommodates a size 15 to 16and 1/2 size viola. This accommodation is effected by cloth covered length of styrofoam that fits along the lower bout part of the case. My viola, a 15 and 1/2 inch Gasparo de Salo model did not fit, as it was too wide for proper closer of the case with the foam situated where it was. Determined to take advantage of the lightness, I cut the styrofoam into two arcs, and affixed them into the upper bout part of the case, so now my viola fits and I'm able to close the case. I like the "Easy-Access' lock, but one must pay close attention that the case is actually closed and locked.
