    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.

    was looking for a case for my Warwick star bass, this case fits like a glove. Locking latch/ lock feature. Ergonomically constructed as case does not get in the way when climbing stairs.

      The first one I ordered had a latch that was not aligned properly so Musicians Friend replaced it with no problems.

          I own an 8-string semi hollow WATERSTONE TP8/32 Tom Petersson bass, and what i'd read about this case and EB2's & Rivoli's, i felt confident that it'd work. The case fits the Waterstone TP series bass well, and it's a tank, and for that it gets five stars

            Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

            I needed a replacement case for my vintage, cherry red, Gibson EB-2. I bought the guitar in 1968 and I cherish it to this day. It represents a very happy and satisfying time of my life. Therefore, "any old case" would not do to protect it.

            I read numerous reviews of this case and decided to try it. The positive reviews were correct. The body of the EB-2 fits snuggly into the case. There is quite a bit of room around the headstock, but it does not matter because, with the snugness of the fit around the body, the guitar is not going to move around at all.

            Aesthetically, the case is very handsome. With its smooth vinyl covering, it looks quite different from your run-of-the mill case covered in textured vinyl. The gold/brass-toned hardware looks great against the shiny black vinyl. The latches are perfectly aligned and snap securely closed. The handle is thick and meaty in the hand. I honestly have no complaints about the case. It seems quite substantial and affords much greater protection for the guitar than did its original case even when it was brand new.

            I do have one small piece of advice for you if you purchase one. You will want to stand well back when you open the case for the first time. Your nostrils will be assailed by a truly obnoxious aroma, presumably from the glue used in the case. Just let it air out for a couple of days and the smell will completely vanish.

            Note that the case was on backorder for five weeks after I placed my order. And, apparently, they sell out fast when in stock. However, it was definitely worth the wait. This case is one of the best gear purchases I have made recently.

              Nice medium grade case.

              Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

              In short it's an average case that is lockable but does not come with keys for the lock. But keys are inexpensive and can be found at any music shop or luggage retailer. I feel confident my instrument is safe and snug inside. The handle on this case is also perfectly placed and well balanced. i also love the giant E on the case which Epiphone can shamelessly advertise their product that I paid for.. Lol.
              It has pretty much the standard case options. It is lockable which is a nice option and has storage inside for cables, tuner, music, etc. It would be much nicer if it came with keys though. A standard TSA key fits and works well if you happen to have one handy. Keys are relatively inexpensive to buy at any music store.
              It's nicer than the $40.00 cases by a long shot but...not as nice as other, higher priced cases. This is pretty much the only case on the market for the Jack Casady bass so you really don't have any other options if you gig your bass. The bass fits inside nice and snug, and I'm sure I could probably drop it off of a roof and find the instrument inside unharmed.
              I guess it's a good value. Epiphone could double the price and you would still have to buy it since it's really the only case available for the Jack Casady bass.

              Jack Casady Bass Case can be used for a Gibson EB2 bass

              By Terry Childers

              from Ashland KY

              Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

              I have a Gibson EB2C bass guitar that I bought new in 1968, and it came with a soft shell case at the time. After 40 plus years the handle had broken and the stitching had failed. It was then, that I found it was very hard to locate a hard shell case to protect my old friend. Calling the Gibson factory was no help, and that I may have to get a case custom made. Looking at the J C Bass, it looked like a very close copy of my EB2 but no deminsions were stated in the description of the case. I called Muscians Friend and the girl I spoke with did not have the inside deminsions but the shipping deminsions were large enough that it just might work. Got it in less then a week and found the the EB2 would fit inside. This is a snug fit around the body and lots of room in the neck area. The inside is very nice. The outside may not have the toughest material but will work well. This case is also heavy but that's the price you pay for protection.
              I now know I should have purchased a hard shell case in 1968 from Gibson, but that is in the past .
              If you are looking for a EB2 Bass case, this will work. This case is well worth the money, if you don't care that the outside of the case has Epiphone on it and not the Gibson logo.

              The only case for your Casady.

              By Dave-AUTGw

              from Tennessee

              Comments about Epiphone Jack Casady Bass Guitar Case:

              I have owned my Epiphone Jack Casady for four years. Awesome bass. Been toting it around in an absurdly large gig bag since the day I picked it up; terrifying to bring on the road. Impossible to find an aftermarket case it will fit in. After much deliberation, I plunked down the cash to get the official Epiphone-branded hard case. Worth every penny. Fits the bass like a glove, enough room to keep my strap attached in the case, adequately sized storage compartment. I'm sure the Tolex will take some abuse, but the bass should escape unharmed... lest you run it over with the van.
