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 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!

        Bought this for my Hofner 500/1-CT Series Bass. Some of the other reviews talk about having to modify the case for it to fit, but mine fits perfectly right out the box. It's a very good looking case, not as sturdy maybe as some stock cases from say, Fender, but for the cost it's quite good. Standard lock on it that comes with two keys, and a small neck compartment in the plush interior. Very lightweight and easy to carry. So far I love this case.

            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.

              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! : )

                This case is a great value. As others have said, it fits the Hofner Ignition bass perfectly. I didn't notice any offsetting of the handle on mine; it's perfectly balanced and very sturdy. Just what I was looking for, and the price is hard to beat.

                      Overall, this is a very functional and well-fitting case for my Hofner Cavern (violin) Bass. It lost a star because the carry handle is not properly positioned. With the case in your right hand, either full or empty, the case tilts away from your body at the top. The bottom of the case tilts toward your leg. Just enough to be annoying.
