Well, as hilarious as that sounds. I think getting a case shipped to
Australia from the US of A would defeat the purpose of my trying to

 I've seen a few people in trendy pop bands hollow out the white case
and use them to house their boring MIDI controllers (dude from Beck's
touring band for one).
