I have several Fender basses in the Classic and American Vintage line: a Classic '51 Precision, a Classic '50s P,and an AVRI '57 P. The '57 came with its own G&G period-correct tweed case, so I'll focus on the others.

First of all, I'm a little hard-case obsessive (even though I use a gig bag for local jobs). My first guitar had a fiberboard case, and I was not happy until I found a factory hard case for it (for what's it's worth,it was a '60s Ventura flattop).

As I progressed musically and professionally over the years, I made it a point that all of my instruments (eventually encompassing acoustic and electric guitars, a pedal steel, Dobros and basses) had a form-fit case.

When I got into Precisions the ones I bought had no case ('51 RI) or a gig bag ('50s, Godin A5)). In the case (ha ha) of the Ps, Fender offers these gorgeous cosmetically attractive cases you can mix and match to your instrument: the'51, with its "butterscotch" (aka deep yellow) looks terrific in the brown tolex/gold pile interior case, and I gigged for a long time with the fiesta red '50s in the tweed/deep red case.

C'mon! They look cool, I have had no issues for 9+ years, and they provide a lot of protection. For local gigs I use gig bags, but that's for space constraints (my combo includes a percussionist and her congas) and you can pay a lot more for other products without the history and mojo about them.

A keeper
Received today for xmas. Really the case I wanted because it's got the vintage feel and is thinner and easier to muscle around than the clunky chunky SKB sytles. I'd want an SKB for the road, but for hiking to my bud's for a party jam the larger cases are too cumbersome.

So this one is decent and it's a keeper, but I think the wood probably isn't as easy to construct cases with the way it may have been in years past. This case isn't truly square and does not stand flat on the floor, so it rocks a bit from side to side. Can you say, "'Darn, my bass fell over again."? But I'll keep the case 'cause there likely isn't one better. Latches close nicely. No blems on the tolex. Nice leather on the candy compartment. Lining is cleanly installed.

Of note, the slot for my 2001 4-string US Precision Standard seems like it's slightly displaced, because the neck does not fit exacly straight into the notch. Probably will improve as the lining flattens out in years to come. I'm not storing in the case so it's not a big deal.

Says "Fender" on the tag near the handle. Wish it had an automobile like raised Fender logo like the amps!

Comments about Fender Precision Bass Hardshell Case:

OK--so my cheap Fender case showed up crushed by the Postal Service. Here, they replaced it with this beauty and gave me a whopping discount. This is the kind of service that will keep me coming back. New case is really cool too.

The mother of cases!

Comments about Fender Precision Bass Hardshell Case:

I bought my 1977 Telecaster bass brand new in 1977 and it came with a standard Fender hardshell case. It is now 34 years later and yes, it is ugly and beat up, but it still closes tightly and has protected my Tele the entire time from when I bought it. Like a Timex, it takes a lickin' and keeps in tickin'. If you have a P-bass, a J-bass, or any other Fender guitar, their hardshell cases do the job. There's cheaper out there, but you do indeed get what you pay for. Don't worry about it, just buy it.

      Comments about Fender Precision Bass Hardshell Case:

      I bought this for the Fender PJ with the P body. The fit Is perfect. So perfect that you'll have to wedge your bass in until the foam panel ends deform enough. This is a good thing: no rattle, no harm. Nice.

      I bought the case in tweed with the red interior. It's as beautiful as any of my old tweeds. Very standout, very classy; especially striking with the sea foam pearl bass lying in it.

      The case is as rugged as any hard shell I've ever had, except for the two-ton steel flight cases (thank you Warwick: Thumb meets gig bag...). The build quality was excellent except for one minor problem: There was a badly seated staple just to the left of the handle that had abraded some of the tweed. Not enough of a problem to send it back, and fixed with a couple of taps with a ball peen, but annoying. (I've seen badly set staples near the handle on numerous otherwise excellent cases from numerous manufacturers over the last forty-odd years - guitar, bass, acoustic, mandolin, whatever. What's with that?)

      Bottom line: If you have a p-body with the same dimensions as mine and want a hard shell case you likely won't find a better one unless you order a boutique custom.

                I received this case in very poor condition from the factory, not musicians friends fault. I found a total of 6 holes in my case, 2 scratches and a scrape. I called to return it of course. Me being from Canada, I had to pay toll and cross into Detroit to pick it up, and to ship it back I had to go back to Detroit. Not a good experience and not happy with musicians friend's customer service.

                      Case arrived well packaged and in excellent condition. Exterior very stylist and interior nice, even smells good. The center latch had to be adjusted slightly. The P-bass fits the way I would expect it to, nice a tight, very well supported. The accessory pocket is large and has a snap for security. The plush red interior shows off my artic white Bass very nicely. I would buy another one with out any question.

                        Comments about Fender Precision Bass Hardshell Case:

                        I just received the tweed version of this today for a P bass I'm building. Very nice case! The first thing I noticed is that this case is made to fit a Fender P bass perfectly, and it does just that. If you're buying this for any other bass, take careful measurements. If your bass is even an inch longer than a P, it won't fit. The Jazz bass case is a little longer, though. I like that my P bass fits nice and snug. It won't be sliding back and forth in there like it does in a "universal" case.

                        I assumed the tweed would be shellacked, like Fender does with their amps, but it's not. It doesn't appear to have any kind of coating at all and I'm contemplating whether to shellack it myself. This is a really nice case and I want it to last a while. That's the only negative thing I have with this case and it's the only reason I didn't give it 6 stars. It seems very well built and my bass fits in there just like it should.

                        It's Fender tweed. It looks cool and keeps my bass safe. What more could I ask for?

                          I ordered it because of the name, thinking it would be very high quality...it is good, but not as good as I had hoped.
                          It doesn't close tightly, and the latch on the far right doesn't click in well.

                          It's the usual Fender qulity and keeps my bass safe and sound. The storage compartment is nice, too.
                          Nice snug and safe fit for my P-bass, and, I love the Fender logo on the front of the case.
                          Solidly constructed ... I have several Fender cases for guitars and basses.
                          Compared to other company's cases, the price is reasonable.

                          Comments about Fender Precision Bass Hardshell Case:

                          The only real problem I had with the case was the weight. It weighs a whopping 16 Lbs. Couple that with a 15 Lb. bass guitar and you've got a rig that weighs over 30 Lbs. I returned the case and opted for a gig bag.
                          Nice big storage pocket.
                          I would say the case is of pretty good quality. I did have a little trouble with one of the latches.
                          Way over priced for what you get.
