              Comments about Gator GL Lightweight Bass Guitar Case:

              I was looking for a bass case to carry a short scale bass. I called and spoke with Ian who recommended the Gator. my Jaguar bass fits well and is secure. I also have a full size Gibson S G, and it fits securely as well. The Gibson has a hard case of it's own. The gator is designed in such a way that it will hold most any size bass. Thanks guys I love it.

                      This case offers more protection than the best gig bag plus a pocket for cords, strings, etc. But it's lighter than a hard shell case. I've had it a few weeks so can't tell yet how it will hold up but it looks like it's well made.

                        I purchased this for a Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String bass, and it fits quite well. The top horn on the bass is a toucn long for the padding inside the case; however not to the extent that it can't be tweaked a tiny bit...and it fits great. Your guitar strap will need to be removed before putting this bass in the case, but I have quick releases...so that's not a problem. NOT a case for serious banging around...but exactly what I was looking for.

                          Comments about Gator GL Lightweight Bass Guitar Case:

                          First off, this case is constructed really well. The zippers, the thermal foam, and outer covering are top notch. Keep in mind, it's not going to replace an ATA flight case, but it's definitely more protection that any of the gig bags out there.

                          The most difficult aspect of buying one of these types of cases is to see if it will fit your bass. I've tried several of my basses in it, and here is what I found:

                          1) Fender MIM 5 String Jazz - the body is a tight, but perfect fit, the neck and headstock are all well protected, the top horn hits the stop at the right place, and the sides are exactly a good fit. It's like it was made for this bass.

                          2) Peavey Cirrus 5 String - this bass has a bit of slop (about 3/4" travel) from the body length to the top horn. It's a 35" scale. I would be OK using the case as is with this bass.

                          3) Pedulla ThunderBass 5 - this has a lot more movement, about 1.5" for the body back to the top of the top horn. I would not use this in this case without something to take up the extra room at the bottom of the bass. There is a lot of room between the headstock and the top of the case, but if the body is well supported, this would not bother me. This requires me to make an insert to feel comfortable using it.

                          4) Yamaha TRB II 5 string - this bass doesn't fit in the case. The top horn is too long, and will deform the wall holding the body at that point. It's the only bass I found that I have, which didn't fit.

                          5) Lakland 55-94 5 string, 35" scale. Fits really well, a little play in the body similar to the Cirrus 5 string, but I'd be perfectly fine using it for this bass.

                          6) MTD 5 string Kingston - fits great, just like the Lakland and the Cirrus. No issues with using it as is.

                          7) USA Fender P Bass 5 string - it's like this case was made for this bass. The top horn fits snugly in the space, and the side to side body spacing is OK, about an inch of room (more than the Jazz bass), but I'd be ok using it as is.

                          The design of the neck support (from the body, through the nut) is really well done. It seems to magically accommodate 4 and 5 strings of many brands, with different spacing, and different neck profiles.

                          I've tried a number of these lightweight cases, and without throwing any other brands under the bus, Gater has a winner here.

                          Hope this helps figure out if your bass might fit... Sorry, most of my basses are 5 string, so I wasn't able to provide insight to 4 strings, but I feel comfortable saying that the structure of the neck support in this case should easily work for similar 4 string models.

                              I had ordered a different case but it was out of stock for at least 2 months so I ordered this one instead. It is much better than expected and looks great. Thank you ordering gods.
