A molded shell with a plush-lined eco-friendly interior to give your acoustic bass twice the protection.

This hardshell guitar case from Road Runner is designed to fit most acoustic basses.

The molded case has a non-scratch, thicker pile, plush-lined interior and padded neck brace with 2 accessory compartments—one covered and one open. To give extra protection to your special instrument, the exterior is a hardened, roadworthy shell.
Other features include a tongue-and-groove valance, rubber feet, 3 riveted latches—the middle one has a lock & key mechanism—and an offset handle for easier transportation.

The soft, plush interior protects your acoustic bass from scratches and nicks, plus Road Runner uses a special, eco-friendly, dye-free material, which eliminates the release of polluting bi-products into the environment.

    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.

    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.

      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!!!!

                  Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

                  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.

                          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.

                            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.

                            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.
