I've been a weekend musician for over 40 years and usually gig 2 - 3 times a month. I purchased this case for a Japanese Ric "tribute" bass and it was a nice fit. I've owned the case for just over 3 months now and have actually used it for several basses (I own around 20), and so far, the case has fit them all. My only complaint is a minor one: after several uses, a couple of the latches don't seem to line up correctly. I have to line them up manually in order for the latch to lock in place. Once latched, though, it's solid. It's a minor annoyance, but an annoyance just the same. With that said, I'd still recommend the case as an excellent buy. I got mine back in August for about the price of a mid-level gig bag (I see the price has gone up since then). I did do some fairly extensive price checking before I bought and didn't find anything that came anywhere close to this as a deal.

Overall, the product is not bad. I bought it because it was a bit cheaper than the Gator Case I also ordered from Musician's Friend. While I use my Gator case all the time, I only use the Musician's Gear case occasionally. In those few instances, I've already had one of the clasps stop working. Other than that, it seems to do a fine job. I hope that it continues to hold up.

      Comments about Musician's Gear MGMBG Molded ABS Electric Bass Case:

      There are no measurements specified on Musician's Friend but I bought the case, hoping it would work for me. My Spector 4 String Legend fits very well. My measurements are: Body area: 20"Long x 13"Wide The Headstock area is 10" Long x 13" wide the Middle area has two 14"Long x 5"Wide uncovered compartments with a Channel between for the neck. Has a velcro strip to secure the neck. Total length is 46.5" (interior). The case exterior is solid. probably would survive a drop but not a car tire. If the accessory compartments were covered, I'd have given it 5 stars.

        Comments about Musician's Gear MGMBG Molded ABS Electric Bass Case:

        I bought this case for my new Fender FSR Jazz bass, and it is a perfect fit. The quality is very good and the design is very similar to my RoadRunner hardshell case. The handle and latches are a little light-weight, but for home/studio and mayble light travel it is an excellent case for the money. Very happy with this purchase.

          Comments about Musician's Gear MGMBG Molded ABS Electric Bass Case:

          I found another review that stated this was a perfect fit for his Fender Squier Jaguar Bass...and he was right..! Mine fits perfectly too..! Not only that but this case is nicely lined in thick black material, has a Velcro hold down strap near the 1st octave fret and 2 accessory bays.The shell material is thicker than you might expect and will hold up well. I would hesitate to send this case on a world tour but for other gigs where you are in constant control of this case, it would be perfect.(Hence the 4 stars) Excellent price too. It is as advertised and delivered as promised. There was no place to enter the advertised promo code online but one phone call to sales and service fixed that. You can't get hurt buying this one.

            Comments about Musician's Gear MGMBG Molded ABS Electric Bass Case:

            This is the best bass case out there for the money. It secures the bass extremely well from sliding in any direction inside of the case. The protection is good enough to use on airlines. It is light and durable. It resists scratching and catching/friction with feet of other cases stacked around it. I keep trying other cases which look cooler but consider it a mistake every time. This is the case to get.

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Long Time Storage

              Comments about Musician's Gear MGMBG Molded ABS Electric Bass Case:

              I wouldn't use this on tour, on an airplane or for heavy gig work, but it suits it's purpose well for those of us that refuse to use gig bags at home and just drag the guitar out for jams and light duty gigging. Just the same as I wouldn't put a real 1962 Jazz bass in it, but for regular basses like my MIM Jazz and Warwick Corvette, it is the right case, at the right price.

              The clasps are good (but not great, at least there are four of them), the overall thickness is acceptable, the padding and carpet are what you expect in this class of case. Fits a Jazz bass perfectly with a little extra room at the headstock, I assume to fit the longer headstocks of some 6 strings. It is very light, which is a big plus.

              Don't expect a case you can abuse endlessly for this price, but if you take care of your stuff and just need it to be secure in case of a serious drop or impact (the kind that WILL destroy this case, but save your guitar), then you really can't go wrong for the money.

              If you are a weekend warrior that transports it to practice twice a week and gigs at least once a week, it will suffice with moderate care, but you will likely be buying another case in a couple of years.

              Short version: Slightly better than I expected for this price.

                    This is a great value, easily rivalling cases taht are more than double the price. I've only had this a short time, and time will tell as to it's longevity, but it's perfect for my current needs. I love the neck strap, as it keeps the bass solidly in place.

                        After reading reviews on many cases, I got this for my Ibanez GSR200. I love the way the bass fits snug into it, and the velcro strap is a plus. I was worried about the lack of compartment tops to the cavities, but the case shuts snug, so no loose picks or patch cords being shuffled throughout the case while handling.

                        It came with a broken hasp though. I was able to fix it myself easily enough, but I feel like it should have been caught by QC. It won't keep me from ordering Musician's Gear products again by any means, but I will be wary.

                        I had a Gator case before, and even with the hasp issue I'd still buy this one again.

                              MF listed order, then AFTER order, notified me days the next week it was backordered. Went online to check status a week later and only then discovered it won't ship for 4 MONTHS! I was buying the case to ship to someone to use to ship me a bass - missed the deadline need for case. MF should notify Out Of Stock status immediately and be up-front about how slow they are, not be self-serving to keep customers hanging and hide the 4 MONTHS delay. Supplier should also be more forthright. Very disappointed in Musicians "Friend" and the supplier.
