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:

    A lot of the reviews I read before I made this purchase suggested I would need to modify the neck rest in order to get the case closed, that was not my experience. I have a Douglas WVEB 833 VS Fretless Violin Bass and it fits perfectly.
    The case is fairly light weight, sturdy, and latches securely. The price of the case was comparable, even better than most prices for this style case. I would highly recommend it for a sturdy low-end priced case. Great bang for the buck.

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

      I been playing off & on bass & guitar for over 45 yrs. so this is honest comments! Having "Many" bases & guitars in my collection, I had taken back in trade a V100 Rogue Violin bass that I actually purchased long ago. The Rogue actually is a quality little piece & plays well for a cheaper V-bass. I've had Hoffner's, Epi's & as my Rogue, for MF great price, this case fit like a dream & has more than adequate protection for any V style bass under a grand! Nice Vintage look, latches are secure & solid construction. A slight smell as almost all cases & padded bags just about have today. A day of leaving the case open should cure that problem! Probably Not for Air travel! But Completely Happy! : )

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

      A lot of stores don't stock a case for their violin basses, and I'm glad they don't. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered venturing online to find this one. For the price, I couldn't have done any better.

      This case fits the Epiphone Viola Bass perfectly. One thing it won't do, though, is accommodate the bass with my locking strap on it. No biggie, I just have to pop the strap off and store it in the neck compartment -- which I should probably do anyway. That compartment is somewhat smaller than you might be used to, so plan accordingly.

      I wouldn't trust this case to get run over by a truck, but it's a far sight better than a gig bag. For a hobbyist musician like me, it's perfect.

          I bought the newest reissue of the Hofner 6 string violin guitar.
          It is the Hofner Ignition series 6 string, problem, there does not seem to be a case made for it.
          I took a chance with this one because the dimensions seemed right and the price was great.
          Well guess what? It fits like a glove.

                A perfect fit for my new Hofner Ingnition Violin Bass with no alterations necessary. It shipped and delivered on time, open the case and the bass slid right into it's new home. This is not an indestructible road case, but well worth the money. The five latches, four on the front and one on the backside, are not heavy-duty, but with a little TLC, they should last. If you need a case to protect your Hofner at home, church, etc...this is the one. And, with using the week's discount and free shipping, it was a no-brainer!

                    This case fits the guitar like it was made for it. There were no modifications needed. Unpacked the case (that came quite quickly) and nestled my bass right into it. It is made of wood so it does add a bit of weight when carrying.

                    It fits my Epiphone Viola SUPER snug. At first I didn't think it would fit right but surely enough it was right on the money, another millimeter and it would have been too big. Locks work well, materials aren't the best but you're only paying fifty for a HARDSHELL. If you have a Viola go ahead and buy it, it'll do the job.

                      I don't do a lot of traveling with my instruments but with the little travel I do, this case works great. Other reviewers have claimed they have had to make modifications to fit their Rogue VB100 in it, the one I got fit the Rogue VB100 perfectly with no mods. For the price it can't be beat.
