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:

Waited for Musician's Friend to come up with a less expensive violin bass case that would fit a Hofner Ignition/Icon and they came through. Sturdy, very well made as always. Have Musician's Gear custom cases for my Les Paul, SG, and Strat and am more than pleased. A quality case at a bargain price.

      This case fit my Epiphone Viola Beatle Bass guitar like a glove. Perfect in every way. Best case for the price, better than most other cases at twice the cost. If the case had the Epiphone logo on it, you would not be able to tell it from a real epiphone case.

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

              I purchased a Hofner Ignition bass elsewhere with a case at more than double the price of this one. Love the bass but the case was backordered - for three months! Still is! I got tired of waiting and found reviews about this case. Had to read many to be sure the Ignition model would fit (it does) as most reviews mentioned the Icon series or others.

              Mine arrived today and as noted in many other reviews it does require the slight mod to the next rest. That took maybe 15 minutes to complete and this case fits my Hofner Ignition like a glove! I can't attest to wear and tear, we shall see, but I don't play that many gigs and travel even less so this will mostly be used to safely store my bass here at home. The construction and finish is better than expected at this price. I only withheld one star because I'm worried the lid to the interior storage compartment may not last. It seems to be held in place by nothing more than a sleeve of fabric. Still if the worse that happens is the fabric rips and it becomes loose or lost, the case will still be an excellent value.

              Stop debating. If you need a case for your violin bass you can spend more, but this seems excellent value for the money and it arrived in days, not months!

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

                Found a Beatles bass at a pawn shop, needed a case for it. The bass was built by the Korean company that builds Epiphones, so it was a standard size. Still, I was worried about the fit, but there was no problem. The neck rest is a bit high, but I think it will compress to fit better.
