Had to rip out the reinforcement piece inside that holds up the neck because it sat up too high and when the guitar (a Hofner) was inside, the lid would not close. Modified it by trimming some of the foam to lower it, removed staples and put back in. What a mess it made inside.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Electric Bass Case Violin Shaped:

    I have both a Hofner violin bass and the Hofner violin 6 string guitar and this case works for both..Bass fits perfect...guitar just fits, neck shorter of course..To be honest, I was surprised at the quality of this case for the price! Good case, even better price! Glad I bought it!

    Good quality, seems to be well padded inside. But remember, this case is only for the violin shaped basses (i.e. Paul with the Beatles).

    Maybe should have believed the warning reviews

    By Plfd Jack

    from Los Angeles

    About Me Professional Musician

    Comments about Musician's Gear Electric Bass Case Violin Shaped:

    I guess whether or not the case fits the bass is somewhat subjective. As has been noted on other reviews, the neck cradle is very high. Yes, the Hofner Ignition goes in and the lid closes, but it's hard to believe it's good for the bass to sit at a cocked angle with the headstock much higher than the body, air under the upper bout and the lid clamped down on it all. If this is a strategy to keep the bass from moving around, I wish someone at MF would clarify. I have at least 30 other cases, none do this. Would send it back if I had nothing else to do.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Electric Bass Case Violin Shaped:

      This seems to be a very nice case. Fitting my Epiphone Viola was quite difficult. There is a support that holds the neck about 1/2 an inch too high. I have hopes that the bass will cause the support to lose its stiffness. If it doesn't, I will need to remove the padding and cut the support down some. Not a difficult task, but I read a review that stated what a great fit the case was for his Viola. That was not true for my Viola.

          This is a good case for the price. It's purpose is to protect my Hofner Ignition from the rambunctious grandkids who swarm through the house on weekends. The storage compartment Inside is sized for my strap, strings and picks.

            looks like the fit issues described in the past have been fixed.

            When it's time to tuck in my Rogue VB100, it has a cozy bed.

                Fits my Hofner Ignition Beatle bass I just purchased perfectly. For the money you can't go wrong. Wish storage area was larger for a strap and an extra set of strings, but it is a small complaint.

                      Fits and protects my my new Rogue VB-100 perfectly. Well constructed, and suitable for travel to any gig. May not stand up to airline abuse, but most any other method of travel should offer no problems. Great price for a great quality case!
