      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!

      I bought a roadworn jazz bass and was looking at the Fender tweed cases to match the used, vintage vibe of the bass. This case came up in my search and I went for it based on the low cost and the knowledge it might get some mild "abuse" to match the bass. It was delivered packaged well, but it had a small dent in the front – a dent that I would bet was there when it left the factory. The glue smell was overpowering when I opened it, so I aired it out for a few days with great success. Up close the quality of the workmanship and the details are just so-so. I'm a bit worried that the handle won't last long, too. Does it protect well? Yes, and overall I am happy with it for the price and purpose it bought it for, but that's it. If I would have bought it for my new, pristine MIA bass I would have returned it and went with the higher quality, more expensive Fender tweed case.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

      Inner supports wobbly and liner coming apart. Leather pull strap for inner pocket pulled out when I first opened it. Would return for a new one but not worth the hassle or the price of the return. This is an instance where if you can go to a music store to inspect the product, you should.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

      I knew I was taking a risk ordering something inexpensive off the web that I hadn't seen in person. The case is somewhat soft and flimsy, and the interior protective pieces covered in fabric seem to be nothing more than Styrofoam, and they aren't secured, they move around loosely under the fabric. I think I'm going to return this and get something better. Maybe the MF ABS molded plastic one for a little more.

        This is a great substitute for the highly expensive Rickenbacker 4001 case ($300+). Works great. Fits snug.

        Affordable protection

        Cons

        • Accessory Flap Flimsy
        • Fair Quality
        • Minimal Padding
        • Needs Deeper Neck Pocket

        • Storage

        Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

        This is a decent case for a great price. You get what you pay for, which is a hard case for storage. I wouldn't travel much with this case as I don't think it holds the bass super securely inside and has minimal padding.

        That said, I think it is an excellent value for a hard case for storage (which is my intended use). At one third the price of the great cases, it fits my needs perfectly.

        Main issues: minimal padding, a poorly secured (one screw per end of each support wall) accessory pocket, minimal neck pocket to keep bass from sliding around. My bass body is a tight fit in the case, so it doesn't really slide much, but I could see other smaller basses sliding around inside the case.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

        This case looks great with the tweed covering. The good stops there. The interior feels cheap with minimal protection. The bass slides around on the inside and the wall separating the horn from the compartment is cheap styrofoam which means headstock in danger of interior impact if the case is dropped on its head. Go with the ABS covered case. Huge protection for same money and lighter weight.
