Purchased this case about 6 months ago after purchasing my new Rogue 5 string guitar. I have had no problems with the latches, handles, or anything else. I feel that this is a great case for the money. The only problem I had was when I put the Rogue 5 string in it and it didn't fit in the body section. The upper left body part which has the strap holder screwed into it,(forgive my lack of terminology for bass body parts) hit right on the cross piece in the case. The body is quoted as 21 inches long but actually measures 20 1/2 inches. My dilemma was to send the case back and try to find a different one or ruin the warranty by modifying the case. Out came my razor knife. I notched the cross bar very carefully to accommodate my 1/2 inch, dug out a small portion of the hard Styrofoam underneath, and folded the plush covering back down with a little glue. My bass now fits perfectly and actually is more secure than ever. I do not regret having done this. The case is plush inside and I like having the open compartments as their lids are built into the top of the case so when closed, everything is held tight. I highly recommend this case, just beware of the exact measurements you need to accommodate your instrument.
this case is a good bang for your buck and is a definite essential.
Overall, this is a nice ATA bass case, but it has issues. I've happily taken it on many trips including international. However, it's only usable now for non-flight purposes after being banged around for 12-16 flights. Also, one big problem with the design of the latches is that it can be deformed from such that the latch would actually warp and wrap around and you'll need to use pliers to pull it out before you can open the case again.
Got this case bought for me for my birthday yesterday. Looks great, thought my dad might have got me the guitar he ordered me inside it though but nope not yet. My BC RICH NJ Beast still hasn't arrived. Great quality case and will be using it many a time. Nice one gator.
I loved this case,I purchased one of these cases in August 2003. It was great in the summer.. but beware, in the cold the metal around the case will bend upward. Gartor has been no help helping me to determin what the problem is, however they just put me hold and tell me that'll get back to me.
I purchased one of theses a few of years ago. Unfortunately the shells were warped and the case would not fully close at the ends - leaving about a 3/32" gap. I returned it to MF and the replacement case had the same problem. Too bad because it would have been a great product if not for the warped shells. I hope there craftsmanship has improved since then. I ended up paying the same money for a Warwick lite flight Rock case - not nearly as sturdy, but it closes rather than leaving a 1/16+" gap at both ends.
