    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:

    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.

          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.

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

            I dont do any gigging really, so I cannot speak to this case's durability for being dragged all over the place, but if you're looking for a functional hard case for your Hofner, Rogue, or Epiphon viola bass, this is a great buy. For what I paid (~$40) you'd be hard pressed to find another hard case for this specific shape of bass.

              Saw this bass case for an unreal price. And with no shipping fees. AND Most importantly, it fit my violin bass guitar (Johnson, think epiphone) perfectly.....

                This case is good quality and good value for the money. It fits the Epiphone Viola Bass well and provides good protection for around the town. It isn't the quality of a TKL case, but it's more than half the price and is better than most soft cases. This is the second music gear case I've bought and I'm very satisfied with both.

                    This is one heck of a case for what you'll pay, it is a steal. My bass fit right in, no adjustments, nada, just like a glove. There were no bad smells, and nothing to repair, it's good looking and seems very sturdy.
                    I had to wait quite awhile to get it, so if is in stock... grab it, don't wait.
