I recently purchased a new bass and was on my way to my first gig with it when my neighbor accidently ran it over. Thank GOD I had this case because although the case itself was crunched under the weight of the car, my bass was left without a scratch!
Needless to say, I just ordered another case just like it!

Inner compartment is poorly fixed to the frame. Frame is aligned poorly with lid so you have to finess the lid/latches on fastening. The neck cradle is a VERY shallow half-moon - combined with the inner lid not being padded, allows the bass neck to easily slide out of the cradle - nullifying the intended purpose of securing the bass.

Only practical use is as a glorified dust-cover or a lean-to display if the cover is removed.

Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

It seems like a good product, looks good. I like that the top overlaps the bottom forming a tight seal. I have an Epiphone EB0 bass. The only issue was that I have to turn the tuning pegs sometimes to close the case. In a certain position they hold the lid up. This results in slight detuning. It was advertised as a bass case, and bass guitars generally have large tuners to amplify the leverage for tuning. So I would expect that they would have accounted for that in the dimensions of the case.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

    I am not a bass player per se, but I keep one around to write parts and to fill iin when A real bass player isn't "handy". (Middle of the night, middle of the day, whenever.) I've never had a case for it until now and this one more the does the job. It looks a lot better than the photo on the website. As many have said, I wouldn't want to tour with it or put a super high end or vintage
    bass in it for anything but storage. It provides decent protection, everything works and the price is way beyond right.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

      I bought the black model. It does a great job and fulfills the purpose of protecting one of my fender basses. BIG observation however. The tweed version is a different model or upgrade. 4 latches as compared to 3 on the black. Stitching is better on the tweed as opposed to the black. Also, The tweed appears to have thru the frame screws to reinforce the center of the case. I got this using the coupon phone line. under the advertised price, so for under 4 ten spots you cant go wrong. Definitely beats a gig bag....Really a 4 + for the price but overall a 3 due to concerns of long term durability questions

            Not quite as sturdy as I'd expected, but it IS an inexpensive case. Good for carrying back and forth to paractice and storing the bass at home. I wouldn't recommend this case for travel.

            Bought this for a MIM jazz bass. Not the most sturdy road worthy case out there, but provides solid protection for everyday use and light transport. Instrument fits well and securely. For day to day light use and protected storage it's an excellent value.

              Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

              I bought this for a MIM Jazz bass. A genuine Fender case costs half what I gave for the bass, so I wanted a better deal. This case isn't as "sturdy" as the more expensive cases, but it's a good value for a hard case. I don't hesitate using it with mid level guitars.

                This isn't the best case. It is basic protection for your bass. If you're tough on cases I'd look elsewhere. If your bass has a smaller body then it will move around inside the case. This beats a gig bag any day. The price is great.
