      This case did have minor pooches in the tolex so I got it new at a reduced price. But it was better than I had expected It is roomy inside but the bass is securely supported. The Dean EAB is too much bass to rely on a gig bag, so this case is the bee's knees. I would trust this case on the road, playing outdoor gigs or camping. The bass is so affordable one might balk at the price of the case but in the final analysis it is an outstanding bass for the price and it deserves an adequate case. This case is the best solution at a quite reasonable price.

      I would suggest to anyone that's considering purchasing a Dean Playmate EAB and this hardshell case to do so at the same time and request that Musicians friend pack the Bass in the case for shipping. The reason? I just received the case for a Dean Playmate EAB I had purchased from here previously, the problem was that the case is MUCH too short for the Bass that it's supposed to fit even though it had the barcode sticker on the case claiming it was the correct case. It would be so much more convenient to discover the problem at the warehouse end instead of when you recieve it. Other than this complaint about the improper case size which I'm confident Musicians Friend will rectify, I'd say it's a well made and attractive case... Now if it would just fit!!

            An excellent case for the cost. Sturdy, well made. A bit heavy but, hey, for the protection it offers I'm not complaining. Pretty much bomb-proof I'd say...

              Comments about Dean Acoustic Bass Hardshell Case:

              I got mine today and I'm 100% satisfied. If you own one of the Dean Playmate EABs then you know that the gig bag supplied with the guitar was rather flimsy with no protective padding at all. About the only thing it might stop would be dust or a light rain so I was always very paranoid when I would take it to shows for fear it might get broken. With this case I'm no longer concerned. Like all Dean hardshells its nice and heavy with decent padding, excellent locking clasps and solid construction. I even dig the color simply because its not your typical black and I think it compliments the natural woddgrain of the guitar plus the bronze Dean emblem is a nice touch too. The only thing that I can see that might be a problem on down the line is the glue used to seal the covering has seeped a bit around the bottom edge so it picks up fuzz off of the floor but I suspect a little Goo Gone will solve the issue. Overall this is a very wise investmet for anyone who owns a Dean Playmate (mine is the 5 string model, strung E-C and it fits like a glove) and is a gigging musician or someone just looking for better protection for these outstanding guitars.

                  On arrival the tolex had lifted from the case in 3 places, and the handle looks like it will break off soon. But, this is the only case that will fit my EAB5, and it is good protection, the tolex and the handle are disappointing

                    This is the proper case for the guitar and fits well.The color is better than the picture, more brown than orange. It has the proper logo on the front as well. There are some slight imperfections along the edges, but very acceptable for the price point.

                      Comments about Dean Acoustic Bass Hardshell Case:

                      I did a lot of research to find a case that would fit the Dean EABC 5-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass Regular. It's very specific, oversize shape makes finding a hard case almost impossible. The soft case available is of poor quality and the zipper tore out after a short time. It was difficult to get a definitive answer online, but this case, does, in fact, fir the bass perfectly. It's unfortunate, IMHO, that it doesn't come in black, given to whom the consumers to whom the product is being marketed. The color is pretty ugly, and when I get around to it, I plan on dying the case black. Its kind of an orange brown. I'm guessing liquid or spray leather dye will work on it, despite the case not being leather. All in all, it's a great value to protect your bass.

                          Case arrived in excellent condition - enclosed in a box with bubble wrap. The case is just as advertised - solid, wheat brown color and furry black interior. Several latches ensure it will stay shut and protect the bass. Nice for the the price.

                          This is the only choice to fit a Dean EAB Bass that means they will make you pay more. The case cost well over 1/2 the price of the bass, but it is a nice case.

                          The problem I have is that it stunk when I received it. I don't mean smelled a little bad, I mean it stunk up the whole upstairs in my house and the music room still smells bad more than a month later. It smells like Moth Balls and that smell is deep into the wood of the Bass. I am not sure how long it will take to go away but after a month, it is still there stong.

                          I have mixed feelings on recommending this -- it is solid, although expensive protection but if you get one that smells you can't go near the room it is in!
