Fits Epiphone Rivoli and/or Gibson EB-2

I own a 1995 Epiphone Rivoli II which shares similar dimensions to the Epiphone Jack Casady, and the Gibson Les Paul Signature bass from which the Jack Casady bass is based off of.

With that being said, I gave it a 5 star rating because I'm sure for the Ep J. Casady and Gib. LP Sig., it's THE perfect case for it, with regards to how snug it is for the body and for the headstock with regards to the long scale neck of those two basses.

As for me, and any other owners of Epiphone Rivoli's or Gibson EB-2's, this case will most definitely fit your bass, HOWEVER, there will be a little extra space around the headstock portion, so if you're paranoid, you're gonna wanna stuff that area with something plush to cradle the head stock, but either way, the bass will not move from its position in the case.

I'm serious, with the way the horns on the Rivoli and EB-2 are symmetrical to the bass horn of the Jack Casady, the Rivoli and EB-2 fit very snug within the body section and the neck cradles of the case.

As usual with these cases there's room by the headstock (even more for the Rivoli/EB-2) for extra strings or what have you, and it has it's own pull-out compartment. If you're worried about any odors it may give off, and the idea of having to air out the case (such as with the Epiphone SG case), have no fear, this case doesn't smell like Ferret, or much of anything foul, so you won't need to air it out outside or in a garage.

I have no idea what happened to the other reviewer whose case did not come with the key, but for me, the case was in the box, unlocked, and inside the case was the little baggy with the key. It only came with one key. If you're paranoid, make an extra copy.

One more thing in case you were wondering, contrary to the picture, the case DOES NOT have the Epiphone 'E' on the top. It says Epiphone. Other than that, i'll state the obvious and say it has 4 latches, 3 on one side (one with key hole), and one on the reverse (odd, but fine). Case runs rather tall for obvious reasons, as for weight, with an instrument inside, it feels lighter than an ES-335 style guitar in case, who knows why.

That's all there is to it. If you have a Jack Casady or Les Paul Signature bass, this is your case. If you have a Rivoli or EB-2, either this is your case, or you go custom, or get lucky online somehow somewhere, but honestly, you needn't worry, but if you're still skeptical, you'll find photos online of how they fit snug in this case anyway.

My other bass is a Fender Jazz and it came with a hard-shell, TSA-approved case with large, rock solid latches. This Epiphone case pales in comparison, but it's made to fit the Jack Casady Signature bass I purchased, so that's why I ordered it. It has four standard metal latches, one of which I have to wiggle a bit before it closes properly. I'm sure the case will be fine for my purposes: going to weekly rehearsal and gigging a few times a year. I'd be a little reluctant to put it in a plane's cargo hold without securing it with duct tape or something similar. Also, not that it really matters, but the case does not feature the Epiphone logo as pictured, though it does have "Epiphone" stamped on the outside.

    Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

    I bought this case because I read the reviews that say the case will work well for the Warwick Star Bass II. It does fit that bass, a tad large, but adding a little foam rubber padding would easily solve that problem if it bothers anyone. Simple fix. The case is very well made. Some one reviewed it saying the metal parts are thin stamped sheet metal and are cheap. I don't think so. They are somewhat thin, but the material is a gold anodized steel. Unless you are really rough with this case, it will last indefinitely. It would take a brutal fall to do irreparable damage. I think this case is exactly what I needed for the Star bass, considering, that it is made to fit the Jack Cassidy bass. On Reviewing the Jack Cassidy bass, I may decide to get one in the future, anyway, and I'll be ready for that bass with my case.

          Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

          An adequate, standard case for this bass. It's probably the only case it will fit in so you don't have any options. The case is sturdy and strong enough for gigs, rehearsals etc. It's just a regular, old style case like you would get with a Gibson or other pro level guitar. The price is right and the case is a good value.

          Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

          Purchased this for my Warwick Rockbass Starbass as those cases seem few and far between. Another reviewer claimed that the JC case fit it like a glove. I don't think that's the case (pardon the pun) but this case doesn't do anything that would harm a Warwick RB/SB and is 85% of the way towards a perfect fit. Close enough for a carrying case - which isn't a flight case.

              For the life of me, I could not find a Fender (Hard) case for my Coronado II bass. I finally talked to a MF CSR and ironically enough, he said that his buddy had the same situation and assured me that the case would fit my bass "like a glove". He was ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!! Thanks MF!!

                Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

                Firstly, this is a very nice case. If you have a Cassidy bass and need a hard shell, then buy this.
                I own four different models of Epiphone cases and all are of high quality. The only SLIGHT negative I can cite with the Cassidy case is that it's a bit spendy...not sure why this case is $25+ more than other Epiphone cases? But if you cherish your bass like I do and need protection carrying it about, then this rocks.
                This case carries level and the padded handle is balanced nicely so you don't whack the headstock when climbing stairs.
                For those who care, my case came with gold painted "Epiphone" logo on the case cover, not the "E" as shown in the pic.
                What I really like about this case (and what possessed me to write a comment) is that it exactly fits my late 1960s Lyle bass. I mean a PERFECT fit!
                So for those cats who are fortunate enough to own a Lyle hollowbody (which is an exact copy of the Epiphone 5120e bass from the same era late 60s to early 70s)...I can suggestion firsthand that this is the case for you.
                The case is made so that it fits the symmetrical body horns (like a Gibby EB2, as another reviewer states), even tho the Cassidy has asymmetrical horns.
                If you have a vintage ('68-'72) Lyle or Epiphone bass, THIS is the modern case. I also believe the Univox was made at the same Japanese Matsumoto factory so it should have the same dimensions as well.

                    I purchased this case for a Fender Coronado II bass guitar. Searched for weeks and weeks trying to find a compatible hardshell to protect my Fender. However Fender doesn't make a hardshell for that particular model. This Jack Cassidy hardshell case fits my "F" hole perfectly!!! Almost as if this case was built for Fender instead of the Epiphone. I would highly recommend this case to anyone searching for quality, looks, and overall price!
