Thanks for the report -- I have the GigRig -- my fantasy has been to roll
it up onto small risers and part it there, to get the optimum height for
access to my Mackie (top) and the various units on the front.

... but in real life, it's a piece of furniture, sitting about five feet
from where I type this.  As such, it does very well.

But now I know to watch out for those fasteners, if/when I take it 

Here's a concern:  Cabling.  I get the feeling that maybe a dozen pounds of
the unit's mass is from too-long cables.  Does anybody custom-cut cables to
spec?  Besides the length issue, I'd love cables with straight plugs on one
end and right-angle plugs on the other, so I could leave things plugged
into the Mackie when the top of the box was on.
