This case is great i got it for my Ibanez sound gear and the fit was a little lose but it works fine. The compartments are great. They were much bigger than i thought and fit cables and tuners well. Recently I purchased A Squire Fretless bass and it fits in the case quite well. the only complaint would be the locks. The keys that came with the case didnt work and there is only one lock that doesnt work. So this case is good because you only need one case for any bass. Unless it is oddly shaped like an Iceman

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.

I never even let my bass near this...

By final.expression

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

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.

Nice case but not a snug fit

By Bruce

from Florida

See all my reviews

Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

The case is well built but it doesn't fit snug around my Fender Jazz or Jaguar bass. The guitar can move around inside the case although it has protective padding. If you have a Fender Jazz, Precision, or Jaguar bass, I suggest you spend a little more a get the Fender SKB molded J/P case or the SKB-FB4 case.

Not worth the money

By AdamCJ

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

I bought the Gator Bass Case to hold my Schecter Stilletto and for the first 2 months it did a solid job. Soon after that random parts of the thinnest foam completely broke so the only part of the case still functioning was the part that holds the neck. Not cool.

Gator Bass Case

Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

This is an excellant hard case. I tote my Fender Jazz bass around in it weekly and I have not had any problems with it. There is plenty of interior room for accessories. The case also works well for my P-Bass so it very versatile. Good protection outside and in. I would recommend this over the more expensive Fender case.

      This is a Good Case!

      By Anonymous

      Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

      Several years ago a well known music store was going out of business. I picked up an Ibanez SR 905,(which I love), and the Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case. This case has always been excellent. One time the foam did come undone, but I slapped the lid shut, and it never happened again. I take it to my church gig,(everyone is sober), every week, no problems. If I have a future problem with the interior, I will just go to my local home improvement store and purchase some spray adhesive.

      A good case.

      By JGB wannabe

      from CO

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

      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.

      This case will fit a Fender Jazz 24

      By Ron-G-NTT

      from Virginia

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

      I don't know about any of you other 4-string Fender Jazz 24 (J24) players, but it is hard to find a case to fit this bass. The Fender J24 doesn't fit in most cases made for Fender Jazz basses because the J24 is a little bit longer. This case actually fits the J24 (without the G string tuning peg hitting up against the top of the case--a common problem with most other cases I've tried), stores the bass securely, and is very sturdy. I would definitely recommend it to any J24 owner.Note that this case WILL NOT fit a standard Jazz bass, because the standard Jazz bass body is a bit too fat. The J24 body is a little skinnier than a standard Jazz bass, and fits well within this case.

      A Warwick owners best friend

      By SüP

      from Saskatoon, Canada

      Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

      I bought a Warwick Corvette Standard a while ago and I needed a case for it. Whenever you buy a Warwick you get a RocBag gig bag for it. Now, for a $1200 bass I wanted a bit more protection. I got some no name bass case with a trade up. That one sucked. The neck cradle was made of poor quality foam and crushed on me. If I would have dropped that case, my bass would be no more. I return that case and get this one. Perfection. The neck is fully supported the length down. It also has a recessed head stock area so there is no damage done. Add two large storage spaces and there you go. Definitly worth the money.

        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:

            About nine years ago I bought an upper end Ibanez five-string bass. I wasn't going to leave the store without a hard shell case. I picked up this Gator GC Case. It has provided ample protection for my basses. As I mentioned above, the cushion/padding can slip. No problem, I've sprayed adhesive on the shell behind the padding. If I'd go on the road again I don't thing that I'd want to put it under the bus. However, back in the day I worked with guys who put similer cases under the bus. Great case for gigs around the metro city!

            Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

            This case is a good solid case, but it is a little big for the amount of space their is for your stuff.I dont know how much stuff you usualy put in your case but i put 2 long cables, a foot pedal, my entire wireless system, all my picks in a ring box, my strap, and a donlop pick holder. I wish for more space. I find it to big and clonky but it definitly keeps your friend safe. I got mine free with my bass from a store, and in about 4 months the lock broke. Its kind of expensive for the quality, and not good for small basses because its so large... but you cant beat the protection!If you dont carry alot of stuff, dont need to take it everywhere cus its so heavy, have a large bass, are realy concearned about damageing your guitar, and have some extra ca$h then this case is what you want, if not, keep looking.
