        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.

        Well well there were no surprises here. I knew what to expect by the numerous complaints of basses not fitting. I did what everyone did and removed the neck support. I used a glue gun to reattach the linning, then screwed it back in (4 screws). i got such a good deal on it (15% off), that i don't care about the extra work. I'm no longer that concerned about transporting it to gigs or jams. The next model is about twice the price.Oh well.

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

        A nice case, however my Hofner did not fit because the neck brace in the case was too high. I had to remove it, cut about 3/4" off the bottom and replace it. Then my bass fit well. It is relatively easy to modify - the brace is just Styrofoam so it can be trimmed easily. The factory should make the case neck brace to fit. I cannot imagine what other type of bass they think the case will be used for. Most everyone that writes these comments have to modify it to fit so there is no additional stress on the neck because of the neck brace being too high.

            I bought this for my Epiphone "Beatle Bass" and it fits perfect. The case itself is of good quality construction. No issues at all.

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

              Waited a while to get a case. Always wanted a "Beatle Bass", and got a Rogue since it was a modest price. As it is a unique shape, getting a hard case was choice-limited, and a price issue for me. This case fits perfect and gave me something at a cost I can live with.

                Purchased this case for a china made Hofner ignition. I could not have asked for a better fit. Well made no flaws what so ever. Excellent price.

                  I have had several Hofner basses over the years; this was an upgrade because my old one had become my daughter's cat's favorite scratching pole. I still have that one in storage because it is still quite sturdy, it was just the outside edges that had been torn up.

                    Since the case was labeled generically as fitting a "violin bass" we were a little concerned about the fit for the Hofner. However, the bass fit perfectly & is very snug but plush. Seems to be well constructed and is very attractive. Great value for the price. Only complaint is that the locks are not the best but that's minor

                    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.

                    It is decent. I have to maneuver it a bit to get it to shut correctly, then it's fine. My Epiphone Viola fits LIKE A GLOVE. It is super snug, the headstock is just small enough to fit in the case, and the body is a perfect fit. It does fine for what I need.
