        Perfect fit for my Hofner Bass. Sturdy light weight hard case. Exactly what I needed. The only Con is that the neck brace is 1/2 inch (one half inch) too high. It must be removed and cut off that much and replaced. Just remove the screws on the outside of the case, pry the styrofoam neck brace upward (it also has staples on the sides), then cut off approx. 1/2 off the bottom (hack saw will work fine). The plush liner is lightly spray glued and is easy to trim. After this adjustment, just replace the neck brace to its position and reinstall the screws. A very easy process, can be done in about 1 hour. I would recommend this case to anyone. It is the only one available to fit the violin shaped Bass Guitar.

        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.

        It just purchased this along with a H.Ignition Bass. IT FIT PERFECTLY WITH NO MODS. I was sceptical about it after reading other reviews, but mine fit well. The case is plush and sturdy. The gold stitching and gold locks make it look more expensive than it is. I'm happy with this purchase.

              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.

                Some reviews state that the neck rest is too high. I don't feel that to be a problem. However some reviews give instructions on how to modify the neck rest and it is fairly simple to do so. Maybe the aledged problem has been corrected in later production.

                This is the second case I have purchased from M.F. The fit is always right and the cases look like they would cost a lot more than they do.

                  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.

                  Like other reviewers, I had to modify the neck brace by easily removing it, then cutting 3/4" off the bottom, then re-bolting the screws. Easy.

                      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.

                        Rather than remove, modify, and re-install the non-fitting neck brace, I just removed it. It's still a snug fit for my vintage Hofner. Beware of some long staples that also need to be removed - they brace the neck brace, and when it's gone, they're quite sharp.
                        That said, this is still a great deal. Hofners are delicate, and gig bags are simply not an option.
