Twin zipper closure, large outside pocket and included shoulder strap. Interior measurments: 34 1/2" long, lower bout 13" wide, upper bout 11" wide,  neck portion 6" wide. There is some flexibility for slightly larger instruments- but this is an EXACT perfect fit for the Oahu Tonemaster, Supros, Melobars, and many other lap guitars.

I've watched my musician friends struggle with taxes and the IRS for many years, and seen many not taking all the deductions they can, or keeping the records they need. Although not an accountant, I've been doing my own taxes for years, and keeping up with the changes and rules that affect musicians, artists, and other self-employed people.

I've put together a talk type course on 2 CDs- "Taxes for Musicians and the Self-employed" loaded with tips, tricks, list of the records you'll need to keep, and a step-by-step trip through all of the forms we need to fill out to get the proper deductions and set ourselves up for next year.
I really think this will be a big help to anyone struggling with their own taxes, or give ideas for you to take to your accountant to make sure you get all your proper deductions. Over 1 1/2 hours of instruction on two CDs. The talk CD format allows you to follow along with the tax forms in your hand or online, and for the visually challenged to avoid reading pages of small print. And of course, it's tax deductable!
