Excellent mid-level case. I needed a case for my Fender Kingman bass and was having trouble finding one that would accomadate its length and most importantly protect my bass. MF customer service told me this one will work. After receiving the case I was very impressed with how it was made and the Kingman fit perfectly. I think it will hold up well under most situations with my personal handling. If you are looking for a case that is roadie or airline worthy you'll need to money-up for an Anvil or other industrial type case. But for everyday use and local gigging it will work well.

Musician's Friend offers outstanding service. No problems with them what so ever. The Roadrunner case however is another story. It is molded plastic. The top gives with a light push offering minimal protection. If the latches last more than a week I would be surprised. The interior smelled toxic and had very little or no padding that was lined with what looked like mangy dog fur. Made in China. This was returned to MF.

Acoustic Electric Bass Guitar Case

By Bassminister

from Springfield, IL

See all my reviews

Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

If you are looking for a case that is the next step up from a bag or foam case, this case fits the bill, It certainly offers thorough enough protection for most gigging situations.
I was looking for a case that would fit a Fender Kingman acoustic-electric bass. The overall length of this case accomodates this bass guitar. The light grey plush lining is a positive. The case is basically a molded plastic and has a little give, . The case is very light weight. For the price, I believe this case is a bargain.
With the experience I have had with various cases, it is questionable if it would be able to hold up to any unusual maltreatment. The hardware is not heavy duty, and I probably wouldn't trust it to protect my bass guitar on a commercial airline flight.
For the price being under $100 I believe I got a bargain.

        Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

        This is an excellent case for the money. If you need a solid case for basic transport from time to time, this is for you. If you're a touring, working musician, you're not going to want this case simply because the latches aren't on par with Gator or SKB cases. If you use these day in and day out, I'm guessing they wouldn't hold up well. But for the rest of us, who use a case for storage or occasional transport, this case can't be beat. It's a super sturdy case that should fill my needs for years to come. I have a Samick Greg Bennet AB-2 that's a tad too small for the case, but I just tuck my cleaning towel along the bottom and it doesn't shift around. It's definitely a "one size fits all" for acoustic basses, so it's going to be a bit large for some models, but this should fit about every brand out there.

          If you have an Acoustic (Electric) Bass, stop looking and buy this case. I have a Washburn A-10 and it fit like it was made for it. The lid on the storage compartment is only attached with the lining, so it's a little flimsy and cheap feeling. But when the lid on the inside storage compartment is your only issue with a guitar case, BUY IT.

            I recently bought a kingman bass. Then could not find a hard case for it without backordering for months. Saw this one on MF and read the review that said it would fit, so ordered it. So glad I did. Fits nicely and protects the bass much better than the gig bag I had it in. Also has a good size storage compartment.

            from Virginia

            Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

            This is a very good case. It fits my Samick AB2 four string acoustic/electric bass. I'm very pleased that is has 5 latches to close it tightly. It has a very good soft lining inside and plenty of storage space. It is well worth the money. It's an overall very good case.
            It has a sturdy shell and the inside is very soft and fits my bass which is a samick ab2 4 string accoustic/electric. There is some room to move but not enough to cause damage.
            Very good bass case.
            You cant beat the case at this price

                Of all the Acoustic Bass cases I have examined (and that has been just about all of them on the market) this is the only one that has an exterior that will not get tears due to its construction material. It fits my Cort acoustic bass wonderfully, even with it's 5 inch deep body.

                        I am a performing musician and a guitar teacher so I use my guitar A LOT. I got this roadrunner case to replace my original Gibson case, which after 10+ years fell apart. The roadrunner case lasted 2 years, if that, and that handle broke, plus the latches get more difficult to close/open as time goes on. If you play casually at home, or travel with your guitar rarely, this will do fine. If you play in a band and do any out of town shows, or tours, this will not make it. Just spend the extra money on SKB, Gator, or Wolf. Not to mention, the company wouldn't do anything for me, since it was a gift and I didn't know the exact purchase date to use the warranty. Customer service was just robotic answers regardless of the situation at hand. AVOID!

                            This case was recommended by the acoustic bass manufacturer, Breedlove. It is a good case and the bass fits, but it is not a snug fit like I had hoped. Consequently, the bass moves around a bit inside the case. Not a show stopper, but when the manufacturer relies on after market product support you live with what you get.

                                I read some of the previous reviews about this case's lack of sturdiness and was kind of concerned. However, either the design was changed or I'm just easier to please...... this case seems plenty sturdy enough to protect my Kingman Bass from the typical travel and handling abuse. Everything lines up on the upper and lower shell halves, the latches work as they should, etc. Got it on special during the holidays so the price wasn't bad either.

                                  Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

                                  I have been looking for a case for my Epiphone El Capitan IV acoustic/electric bass and nothing would fit it until Bill at Musican's Friend helped me find this case. It is tight but it fits. The El Capitain has a wide (jumbo) body which is the same as the Ephiphone EJ series acoustic/electric guitar but with a neck that is 6 inches longer than the EJ. I tried gig bags and cases but this is the ONLY one that fit my bass. Big thanks to Bill at Musican's Friend for your help!!!!

                                  My Fender CB-100 CE fits good in it. Had just a little play but easily taken care of with a small hand towel. I feel the latch on the hinge side is a bonus.
