      Comments about Gator GL Lightweight Bass Guitar Case:

      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.

      Best Lightweight Bass Case Out There

        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.

          Bought hoping it would fit my BC Rich Mockingbird but no such luck. Thankfully they took it back no questions asked. Great case for a bass though!

            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.

                My MIM Fender P Bass fits in here nicely. Not a true hard case, but more than adequate for lugging to and from practice. Provides more protection than a gig bag by far. Great deal for the price.

                  My old case was a wood one that was coming apart and was super heavy. This case is light weight! and appears to provide plenty of protection. Also, I sized it with MuFriend chart. It fits my Fender Mexican Bass to a T. I just got it so I don't know how well it will hold up, but it seems plenty tough.

                        Comments about Gator GL Lightweight Bass Guitar Case:

                        This is a really light case I will give it that! The only problem I have with this case is that the material on the outside tends to hold dust, dirt, or grass when you lay it down to get your bass guitar out. This is really the only problem that I have with it. another problem I had is when I went to put my bass in there the very first time, I had to modify the inside wall so that the body will fit in there. I know that this is my fault for not reading in the specs to see the size of the case itself. As for traveling with me I have no problem because I have my rig in a way that nothing sits on the guitar case for the ride. but if you are doing some serious touring or just a heavy load I would get a stronger case; but this one is just fine for me. Gator fan all the way!
