The only case of any kind I have found that will fit a Dean EABC Electric Acoustic Cutaway bass. It is just a teeny bit tight around the head and keys. You just have to make sure to slip it around everything before you zip it shut.

Padding is a bit on the thin side, but material is good strong nylon. Comes with light weight backpack style straps and pretty strong handles that are stitched into the reinforcing straps. Also has a medium sized velcro pocket at the front for your tuner, tabs, scale cards, picks, cable, whatever.

Frankly, it'll get the job done. When no other bag will fit your monster of an EABC, this bag will do it. I wouldn't trust it with airport security or the luggage guy at the bus station, because it won't help you there.
However to tote your monster acoustic bass around and protect it from dust, weather, scratches and dings, etc... this is the bag for the job. It'll do just fine riding around in your car or the band van, just don't stack stuff on top of it.
Bonus for the classy Dean logo on the front.
For the price, you really can't go wrong. If I had another giant bass to tote, I'd buy this bag again.

So-so value for the price, but the longest bag I could find. Unfortunately, it does not fit my Dean EAB Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass--not long enough.

So I will be ordering the real one directly from Dean. They make excellent gig bags. SKU #548302000000000 looks exactly like the one I got with my Performer CE (appr. 47") which fits snugly, and is very sturdy and well-padded.

WHY the heck don't they give theDIMENSIONS of these bags so you know what to order?

          Can find nothing bad to say about this product. Awesome price and quality. Only issue I have is that the sales person on the phone sold me this for my sons Playmate Evo J 3/4 and it is not the right case. The case is obviously not for a Playmate Evo J 3/4. The guitar swims in the case.

              Just keep this bass out of the way. Don't stack anything on it. Gig bags are to keep things from getting wet or scratched. Will not protect against a hard impact or heavy weight

                Hey, It's a soft bag. It works. There's not a lot of padding. But it will serve the purpose just fine. I have taken my acoustic bass to two gigs now. It's great for getting the instrument from the back seat of the car to the gig.

                Just enough padding for protection and a tough skin. Nice looking Dean logo & made for the EAB. Sheds brief periods of moderate rain moving from vehicle to building, etc. Not for really rough road use because after all, it's a gig bag not a case.

                  Not designed for travel or for rough handling, but for my needs it is more than adequate. I handle it with care, putting the bass on top of other equipment in the trunk of my car. I only use it one week a month to carry the bass to and from rehearsal and nursing home performances. Because I also carry 1) trumpet, 2) trombone, 3) folding music stand, 4) music and equipment bag; I find the backpack straps a real advantage.

                  Bag fits my EAB Bass snugly, and could use a little more padding, but good gig bag for the price and will serve the purpose well.
