      Hardshell Gator case fits right- and left-handed basses

      Gator's molded hardshell bass case is made of the finest ABS plastic with ultrastrong extruded aluminum valance. The interior is designed to keep your instrument safe with EPS foam creating support for the neck and a thick plush interior that delicately protects the electric bass.

Unique to Gator is a through-bolted system that attaches the exterior plastic to the interior foam, making this case much more rugged than other plastic cases. Additionally, the open cavity design fits right- and left-handed bass guitars.

      Just picked one up for $ 35 used for my Fender Jazz Bass. Fits the neck like a glove. Not much movement overall, which is good. Area under the body is bit firm. Rest of bottom and top is cushy plush.2 compartments either side of neck support are good for cables, battery etc. There is no lid for these, the case lid has 2 plush cushions which acts a lid when closed The 4 Latches are adequately made. Because mine was used, the exterior ABS was warped in one spot has no affect on the inside though.To the reviewer who said " a Jazz Bass will not fit". Really don't know what he is talking about It fits great. AND if you have 24 fret neck there is an xtra inch + ,So those basses will fit this case as well.A good buy.

      I expressed that I was pretty close to destroying the current case that I tour with to a family member and said that I was looking for a case to take on an upcoming flight to Europe. Apparently they saw this as a hint, so under the Christmas tree I found a Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case. I figured I wouldn't take it on a plane, but maybe it would last me a year of touring and then I could replace it under warranty like an SKB. Well, first- the warranty only covers manufacturing defects, not abuse. No bueno. It seemed close enough to the budget case I had before, and since I didn't pay for it, I was going to let that slide. So I put it off to the side, and opened the rest of my gifts, which I proceeded to pile up on top of the case. A few shirts and a cookbook go on top, and I hear a little *crack*. Weird. I open it up, everything looks fine. I close it up, push lightly on the top again, and hear another series of *cracks*. I open it up again and look inside to see that the entire top foam section had disconnected from the plastic shell."I think you better return this."I won't be purchasing another.

              Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

              I have an oddly shaped 1988 Guild Pilot bass. Gator/MF provided detailed measurements that proved to be quite accurate. I carefully measured my bass and voila! Excellent fit! The overall quality of the case is excellent. It won't stand up to heavy duty tour use - what will? - but for just about everything else this case should be more than adequate. Very pleased.

                Reviewing this as far as the type of case you put the guitar in at home, or throw in the car on the way to the studio,its perfect. A little lighter than some brand name cases, which makes for easy handling. Sturdy enough for average abuse. I wouldnt use it as a road case where the possibilty of having a speaker fall on it from 10 feet in the air might happen, just good normal use.

                  My 5 string fretless NS Design Radius bass came with a gig bag, but the company did not offer a hard shell case at the time of construction. So I found this hardshell case and took a chance on the possibility that my bass might not fit. It fits like a glove. Very durable case.

                    Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

                    Surprisingly low quality. The only thing that keeps it together is the styrofoam insert that is spot glued to the inside. Without the "structural foam" (like a cheap drug store cooler) the case is very flimsy. The interior is hard styrofoam with a low quality plush fabric glued over it and a couple small places where a softer foam is used. Because of the "universal" nature of the case fit, the guitar literally hangs from the neck where the case clamps down on it. The foam insert is not even glued in all around the perimeter, but only near the handle to make that area more rigid, which is good, yet indicates that the case is "engineered" to a certain specification that does not include bothering the glue it all the way around, maybe because that would add significantly to the cost? But I must concede that for the money it is a decent case, being the 2nd lowest price hard shell style case out there. It will protect your instrument from dents and dings during normal everyday use. If you are using it for storage or occasional use, or you are very careful with your gear, then this is decent looking case that will serve your needs. Not for working musicians, serious students, or travelling. If you paid more than a few hundred clams for your instrument I would definitely recommend investing in a higher quality case.
