Comments about Music Man 5981 Hardshell Case for Sterling Bass:

This seems to be a great case, if you can get your bass to fit in there! Even though this case was supposed to be for a Sterling 5, my bass would not fit in there. I know this sounds ridiculous but the cutaway inside was shaped like a Gibson guitar! I just sent it back but I will end up getting an SKB. At least I know I'm safe. Music Man cases should be better labeled and checked by Music Man before they hit the stores, JUST LIKE THEY DO WITH THEIR INSTRUMENTS!

    Comments about Music Man 5981 Hardshell Case for Sterling Bass:

    I have a Sterling Ray 34ca by musicman and it won't even come close to fitting in this case. This case is for the one that I can't afford. But, given the chance I'd play it like I stole it.

    I wish it would just say this case fits these guitars and life would be so much easier.

    Very confusing on descriptions. Sterling, Musiciman or Sterling by Musiciman. I just want the hardshell case for the one that don't come with it new Ok?

      Do not purchase for Sterling by Music Man Basses

      By 

      from Charlotte, NC

      Comments about Music Man 5981 Hardshell Case for Sterling Bass:

      Though the name may be confusing this case is for the high line STERLING Music Man bass not the Sterling by Music Man line. I have the Sterling by Music Man Ray 35 and purchased this case. The foam cut-out does not fit the bass. You can't even squeeze it in. I recommend getting the Music Man 4980 Hardshell Case (for Stingray basses). I will say that the quality of this case is very good and I would have a positive review if it fit my bass.

      It's worth it

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Music Man 5981 Hardshell Case for Sterling Bass:

      I have an OLP MM2 which is pretty much an Ernie Ball Stingray and it fits in this case. The case has a nice, soft interior and has room for a strap or maybe a stombox. The bass does not move around inside or anything. Also, the case looks pretty sweet. If you have a stingray and you want to protect it, this is the case for you.
