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.

The overall build quality of this case is good and it fits my Jazz bass nicely. The only issue is that the inside smells really bad. Its not the usual "new case smell" but rather a strong musty chemical odor that tends to fill the room if you leave the lid open. Any bass stored inside will also pick up the smell. I kept it in a spare room with the lid open for a couple weeks and vacuumed the carpet lining several times, all of which helped but the smell still hasn't completely disappeared.

          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.

            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.

                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.

                  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.

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

                      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.

                                      Overall the case worked for me and the Bass I purchased. However, for the Jackson 5 string, it's a very tight fit. Other than the awful smell, this case is really nice. Seams to be pretty universal with good build quality.

                                        I have owned SKB bass & acoustic cases with either defective latches and the single strap, that holds the top half open at 90 degrees, breaking. This case is a Very Good Value for the price. Unless you are touring professionally and need a real ATA rated case, then you need custom made ATA road-case cases. Which I have owned before, for my 4x10 bass cabs. If you aren't flying for gigs or your gear isn't being transported in a tractor-trailer, this works great for cars, vans, trucks normal gigs, etc. Protect your gear.

                                          My G & L bass fits in this case great. The latches likely will not last forever but this is a decent case, especialy for the price. Note, I used MF website to select what bass cases would fit my model, and this case was not listed but I am glad I took the chance. Perhaps just an oversight, or perhaps the profit margins are less so they do not push it.

                                              Bought this for my Ibanez, because we have a gig we'll have to fly to. Good quality case, I wouldn't mind putting my bass into the bottom of a plane in it. The space for the body is slightly larger than the body of my bass, so I just rolled up some bubble wrap and added that to both sides, and its a very secure snug fit.

                                              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.

                                                  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!
