This gorgeous Musafia Liberty designer silk lined, limited edition case is one of the 45 cases that Musafia ever made. It is a part of the “Portfolio” line series that were made between 1997 -2001.
I was traveling with my parents, exploring the beautiful City of Poznan (Poland), when we have decided to visit a local music shop. As we walked in, this beauty was right in front of us. My Mother fell in love with this case immediately and insisted on buying it for me. Honestly saying, I was not really loving this print at that time, but the fact that it was limited edition, and supposedly the best of the best cases ever made that will protect my instrument, made me realize that I need it. Sold! The price of that case at that time was around $600. I could not believe how expensive it was!
It has been 15 years since that time, and I am carrying my Musafia every day. We went through a lot together. We were traveling few times a year between US and Europe visiting all the major airports, airplanes overhead compartments, cars, trains, buses, hotels and Cities. We played concerts everywhere we went, and nothing ever happened to my instrument! This case is like a tank, built to last forever and after all of this time the inside of that case still remains in a very good condition.
The outside of the case on the other hand is quite beat up and shows its age, but still works perfectly.
I get tones of complements every time I open this case. Everybody love it!. This case is truly a collectable piece and a great investment. I did a little research and learned from Musafia that today, this case is worth $1000! I have decided to give this treasure a makeover and send it to Musafia in Italy to have it restored and cleaned. I think this case deserves that. I can not wait to see how it will look like.
