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.

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.

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.

    Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

    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.

      Comments about Gator GC-Bass Deluxe Bass Guitar Case:

      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.

              Gator cases are constructed well. The latches line up and are secure, the interior is plush, and my bass fits snug with just the right amount of breathing room. Great case at a great price!

                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!

                    I had my doubts but this case fits my new Danelectro Hodad Bass very well. About 3" too long but that is not a problem. The real question was the bout width and that fit is perfect. Furthermore, the case is very well made, 4 solid latches, durable plastic, nice soft radius on the corners. The case stands up on it's bottom edge nicely, more than I can say for my Fender case, tho the Gator is 1 1/2" thicker. The lid stays open when you want it to stay open. Very nice plush interior. Good solid case. My Fender P Bass fits as well, but there is fully 1" too much room at the bout. This is a lot of case for the price. I'm happy!!
