Perfect fit for Fender Jazz bass. Good-sized storage compartment inside case with an area large enough for cords and straps. No wasted space inside. Each latch has a release you must activate before disengaging the latch - this prevents the case from accidentally opening while you're carrying it. One latch has a lock - the key is included.

This is NOT a good case if you travel often and check your bag. I have taken this case on over a dozen flights this year and it is slowly being destroyed. I have cracks and entire sections (especially corners) that have been smashed in. It is now a patchwork of duct tape. This design was not meant for a serious travelling musician. I am going to get an aluminum / plywood case, such as the ones made by Gator. They are twice the price, but I am hoping they will hold up to weekly travel. (NOTE: I travel with both United and Continental, and all the damage has come at the hand of the latter. Curious!)

    solid thus far...

    By Lindsay Lovejoy

    from kansas

    Comments about Fender SKB Molded J/P Bass Case:

    I ordered this because it had TSA approved locks and seemed solid for the price. I could have gone pricier yet this was the right price at the time.

    I ordered this case in march and took it directly on the road; it has withstood dozens of concerts, thousands of miles on the road jostling about with other instruments and gear in a trailer, in a tour bus overseas with luggage piled on top, and plenty of 'whoops, you mean you didn't have that in your hand?' occurrences in my band's sad attempt at an 'assembly line'

    I was quite skeptical of the plastic latches, my six string has a ridiculously solid case with metal latches and that was what I was searching for. one latch is tricky and sometimes you have to put weight on it for it to close yet this is not much problem... unless I'm in a hurry and have my tuner in one hand, bass with cable wrapped around it in another, and my over-filled music folder trying to fall out from under my arm. then it's a problem.

    it passed the road test and the overseas flight test also went well. the lock did seem flimsy to me, as if it could be broken if I pulled hard enough, yet it was just a precaution. the lock proved indeed TSA approved as my case was searched in customs somewhere.
    my one complaint is that the compartment inside is almost too small to fit a pack of strings in, I had two extra sets and had to squeeze the corners for them to fit. ...I realize that this isn't much of a problem, but hey, I'm a perfectionist!
    I flew delta and the case was fine, no issues whatsoever. I was skeptical when i read these reviews, but for the frequent road traveller and the infrequent flyer the case proved a good value if heavy traveling does not demand something more expensive.

      Comments about Fender SKB Molded J/P Bass Case:

      This is a good quality case that does its job, which it to protect your bass. Ive flown countless times with this in checked baggage and many times the bass isnt even knocked out of tune after the flight. There simply isnt any better test regarding its protection. Latches are the best, and the TSA lock system saves hassles at the airport. The stackable feature is nice for storing at home, travel, or at the gig. By far the best case Ive seen that combines strength, function, and portability. Metal road cases are sturdy but weigh a ton and cost extra when flying... Fenders best case by far. All of my basses I travel with are in these. Enough said.

          Comments about Fender SKB Molded J/P Bass Case:

          My Fender American Special Jazz bass fits like a glove. Exactly molded for the Fender Jazz Bass but will work for a Fender P bass too! Love the latches this case.
          It came without the Keys but Musician's Friend Customer service told me they would work it from their end also but it would be much faster to contact SKB Customer Service. I did just that and no quibbles they happily sent me not 2 but 4 keys and I received them in 3 days! Excellent product and customer service from both Musician's Friend and SKB. I notified Musician's friend immediately that SKB was taking care of this so they would not duplicate the efforts to which they were grateful.

            In short, I have to say I love this case. My Fender American Special Jazz Bass fits like a glove in this sculptured interior. Love the ease of use the handles offer. This case is perfect for my Jazz Bass. It has plenty of storage space for straps, cables, etc. The neck and body neatly fit into a formed space made just for your Fender P or J bass. It was missing the 2 keys when it arrived, but Musicians friend gave me the perfect tip for fast service by contacting SKB. There was absolutely no quibbling. Not only did they send it very fast but the package had 4 keys in it. Can't beat that kind of customer service. Highly recommend this case with Fender name on it and SKB quality!

              Comments about Fender SKB Molded J/P Bass Case:

              I upgraded my case from a soft case to this case. It protects the bass so much better. You've got to know that you can't just throw it over your shoulder and go. Every time you gain something (very good protection) you lose something (hands free portability). The exchange is absolutely worth it...imo.

                  Got this case hoping it would fit my MIJ Fender Jaguar Bass. Fits like a glove. Really sturdy construction, great locks. Plush interior is really nice and the compartment is big enough to fit cables and strap, and probably a bit more.

                  Comments about Fender SKB Molded J/P Bass Case:

                  I really liked this case, and was confident that it would protect my bass. Which it did. But however the last time i flew with it Delta took a large chunk out of it, and they're just NOW, 4 months later replacing it. I think they're good cases unless you're flying, then you will probably just wanna up and get one that doesn't break...unless you feel like dealing with the airlines to replace it all the time. But for normal gigging, it's perfect.

                  I'm hoping this case is good for the regulat gigging I do. I am not looking to fly with it.
                  I just bought this case for a hybrid Precision Body/Jazz Neck bass I am building. The fit is perfectly snug. The case is heavy duty and features 4 strong latches, one with a keyed TSA lock.
                  Looks great, time will tell.
                  The price was fair for the quality.

                    I bought this case for my Fender Jazz (the Geddy Lee, which only came with a gig bag!) and it fits my Jazz like a glove, as it should. There's plenty of room inside for a chord, strap, and smaller accessories. We'll see over time how sturdy it is, but from first looks, it appears to be a great, solid case. Very happy!

                    I have gone through several because quality control down there in Mexico where these are made is quite lacking. All checked by the same person on the paper (Rosalie) out of the 5 good ones I own, I returned 3 previous ones due to latches not closing completely. When you receive your case, MAKE SURE, you check it and all the latches close securely. Other than that, these cases are EXCELLENT. A bit blocky but they really make you and your instrument feel secure. MF was good about returning the bad ones, but their wait time for a new one (7-9 days) is much to long in an industry where competition is so fierce.

                    This case is identical to the newer cases that come with the American Strats and Teles. Room for your strap and some small items including a short cable. Very snug and secure fit for my MIM j-bass. I'm WAY more comfortable lugging my big bass around in this as opposed to using a gig bag.I didn't give it fives across the board because nothing is perfect, but this is close.

                    I ordered this case for my Fender Big Block Precision Bass. Fits perfectly. Has a bit of that "new case funk" but I'm confident that will fade. Latches are nice and beefy, but don't feel quite as nice as the ATA latches on the Gator black Poly case. Still, this fits great, seems well made, and will sufficiently protect my bass.

                    Comments about Fender SKB Molded J/P Bass Case:

                    This case is great, i wish SKB made one for my breedlove acoustic because i would buy it in a heartbeat. this a great way to make sure my bass is safe, and i would reccomend it to anyone.
                    This case is perfect for me. I love the TSA latches/lock, they feel more sucure than a classic metal latch. I also own the strat/tele version of this, with that case the storage compartment is barely big enough for my strap, but with this case, the compartment is a lot bigger (since the neck of a bass is longer than a guitar). I can fit my strap, tuner, strings and a lot more in it.
                    The thing is so sturdy and secure. I love how well built the latches are and how balanced the whole case is. I have my Jazz bass in it, and since it is molded, it fits perfectly in it (duh!). if it were to fall and crash on the floor, i would be well assured that my bass was not damaged in any way.
                    It is rather expensive, but for the quality, and safety, i believe that it is a great value. like i said i have 2 of them, and i plan on getting more with the accumulation of more basses and guitars.

                    I was thinking about gettign a cheaper one but am glad I bought this one. The latches are smooth, the key works well. The interior is very well-padded and form-fitting. Ther is room for a tuner, polish cloth, strap and cable etc that will stay put. It's very well-balanced with either my P or J in it. It has flown in the belly of a plane twice (Delta) and the TSA monkeys did not damage it although it was "checked" each time. Ended up with a mar on the case so it's strong. Carried it on board once (US Airways)- they seem to understand the agreement between TSA and the AFM ref musical instruments on board.Overall good value for the money

                    This is NOT a good case if you travel often and check your bag. I have taken this case on over a dozen flights this year and it is slowly being destroyed. I have cracks and entire sections (especially corners) that have been smashed in. It is now a patchwork of duct tape. This design was not meant for a serious travelling musician. I am going to get an aluminum / plywood case, such as the ones made by Gator. They are twice the price, but I am hoping they will hold up to weekly travel. (NOTE: I travel with both United and Continental, and all the damage has come at the hand of the latter. Curious!)
