      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:

          I purchased one of these cases 20 years ago and guess what.......it STILL is in service! Yes, it isn't a super high quality case which SKB admits to right off the bat since it's listed as an economy case. That said, I've seen MANY similarly priced cases that would NEVEN last like this one has.

          It has outlasted my Rickenbacker hard case! I have transported my Epiphone AccuBass in it from day one and in the last 20 years I've played more gigs than I care to count. The latches do need a little bump to align but that's a very minor thing. I'm thinking about buying a new one just because the interior lining is starting to look a bit dingy (gee...after all these years go figure). This case has seen several falls from tables, drop overs and other abuses but has always protected my bass from damage.

          For those who are concerned with the lack of tops for the compartments, the easy fix is to simply put small items (extra batteries, picks, other small items) in ziplock bags and if you fold and place that ever important hand towel you really should carry over the top....problem solved!

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

          My Nathan East signature Yamaha 5-string bass fits perfectly into this case. It has all the compartments and protection I need. Whether playing for John Lewis Band, Tower of Mercy or the Overflow praise team at First Baptist Kings Mtn. I am able to transport my bass in a safe and professional manner. Thanks Musician's Friend!!

                Retired my P-Bass after 45+ years of use and use it on special outings. Found a beautiful used Jazz Bass for regular play outs. This case and my bass were a perfect match. Just trimmed the Velcro neck straps for better fit and the 2 side compartments hold everything with no problem. Already had someone knock it off a table onto concrete floor, case did it's job an with no marks on case or damage to the bass.

                      I am a Weekend Warrior musician and use this bass case to transport my bass to and from the gigs every weekend. The bass does a superb job at just that. It is a good looking case and works just as well as other cases costing twice as much! Great case! Especially for the Great Price!
