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:

I have 2 of these cases each holding a bass. I took a long road trip from Alaska, through Canada, and finally down to Texas with my basses in these cases. In spite of being stuffed in the back of a Jeep and getting crushed under the pressure of an over-packed vehicle, rubbing against some rather sharp metal objects, baking in the withering heat of the New Mexico summer, and gagging in the suffocating humidity of Houston, Texas--these cases stood up very well to all the abuse! My basses were in pristine condition when I arrived at my destination and removed them from the cases. Unfortunately, I was not able to get to my basses immediately upon arrival so they had to sit in the cases in the Houston humidity for a couple of weeks before I could get to them; however, there was NO damage, mold, mildew, or foul odor in the cases or on the basses when I finally got them out! I'm VERY glad I skipped the gig bag option and put my instruments in these cases. They are NOT airline quality; however, they ARE roadtrip quality! For the price, you just can't go wrong!

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

    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.

    Deluxe Bass Case

    By Deborah Franklin

    from Tennessee

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

    After reading reviews from other musicians, I purchased this as a gift for my husband. I'm glad I did. He loves the storage and extra space so his ax doesn't get crushed and he has space to store extra equipment. This is a durable product and is very handy when he is traveling or just gigging around town. You cannot beat this for the price. I will be ordering other things because the prices are so reasonable and shipping gets to me before I know it. I love surprising him.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

    It's annoying when the picture doesn't match the product. Has anyone figured that out yet?
    I bought this case because it had four latches and not three. Boy was I disappointed when it arrived and it had three latches. The picture they have isn't the case you will receive. Other than that it's well built. I'd be raving about it if it was as pictured. I should have just bought the cheaper black case.
    Well built, would be even better with four latches like the picture
    With four latches it would have been an excellent value. With three just buy the black one.

    A case that works for less!!!

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

    Have two of these and now getting two more. If you want a non-ATA, these work fine.One has seen over 180 shows and still works. For the money and extra space for t-shirts, straps, strings, a Zoom H4, and more....this case handles it all(so does the handle). PS: After 3 years, rain, heat, humidity, cold, being dragged around...a few minutes with a small amount of black marker and black tape...and the oldest one is still going.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Bass Case:

    Overall, these cases are the best value that I've found.
    The features are great with the storage compartment and sturdy latches.
    Compared to other cases I've seen for 2X or more the cost, the quality is good.
    The Musicians Gear cases are a great value. This makes my 4th one.

          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.

            Definitely recommended for all but road/touring. Is decent protection, somewhat thin, better than most soft cases/gig bags. I plan on buying several more for house storage/practice. Does NOT hold all of the 5-string models I have but most fit.

I was hesitant about buying the case after reading some negative reviews about the glue smells but once the case arrived I was very glad I bought it. The glue smell inside the case was very strong but I let it sit outside on the porch for a few hours and the smell was gone. Thanks Musicians Friend for the low prices and for protecting my bass for years to come.

                    This case is great.....I use it for my Fender Stratocaster which protects it wonderfully. The compartment in this case is useful for storing straps in. (I don't use the compartment for other guitar accessories because I use another bag for that purpose. Also, the case just overall looks good.

                    To be honest, for the price I paid I was expecting a lot less. I wasn't really concerned with the outside (since I'll be giving it a protective coat of stickers) but I wanted something that would protect my bass from bumps and drops. This case fit the bill. It does the job it was designed for and it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

                    The case is a simple design made to protect and carry my guitar from place to place. I have had one of these cases for about ten years with no problems. I guess it is like anything else, if you abuse it and don't take care of it, it will break. If you are the type of person that doesn't take care of your equipment then don't buy this case. Go to a metal shop and have one made out of diamond plate steel. For the others who love their equipment this case will work fine.
                    It is a simple case to protect your guitar. There are no frills unless you want to count the generous storage compartment.
                    You get what you pay for. It is a simple design, but seems to be well constructed. I have three of these cases and have not had any problems with any of them.
                    It is a good value for the money. For less than $50 I got a simple case to protect my guitar.

                    Not as good as I had the impression it was gonna be. But, you get what you pay for. Quality is lacking, features are standard feature you'd find in any universal case, value is very good, especially when they run a good price. Bought 2 for less than the price of a form fitted case for the Schecter Omen-4. Although it does not cradle the bass well it does protect it from abuse when traveling from gig to gig. One of the metal feet on mine pulled out of the bottom, due to sliding it in and out of the car. the wood seems to be nothing more than thin, hard packed homosote. Much more along the lines of paper board. Although not as durable as a plastic shell case, it is better than a gig bag.
