      OVERVIEW

      More protective than a plain gig bag.

      The SKB 1SKB-SCFB4 fits almost any bass guitar and offers the superior protection of the very same rigid foam inserts found in SKB's hardshell guitar case line, but with the style and portability of a softshell gigbag or backpack case.

      All SKB soft bass guitar cases feature a rugged, weather-resistant, 600-denier ballistic nylon exterior with a hard-core EPS foam interior to provide more substantial protection than a conventional gigbag.

      The SKB 1SKB-SCFB4's exterior features two zippered pouches, one with numerous internal compartments for organized accessory storage, and an adjustable padded backpack strap for easy transport. The hard foam interiors are plush-lined and offer full-neck support to cradle the electric bass's neck more securely than a conventional bag. The SKB bass case also has 3 rubber feet for standing your bagged instrument on it's side without worrying about it tipping over.

      FEATURES
      • Designed for universal fit
      • Heavy-duty double-pull zipper
      • Molded EPS interior with plush lining
      • Durable 600-denier exterior layered with rigid foam
      • 2 convenient exterior accessory pouches
      • Carrying handle and padded backpack straps

      This case saved my bass when I ran it over with my car. I use this bass case for church bands so it gets used all week going back and forth to church, no zipper issues except when i am not careful and it get caught in the support/open material. I accidentally backed over the case with my fender bass inside of it and then pulled forward over it again with my chrysler 300. The weight of the car crushed the foam right where the headstock meets the neck. The nut was pushed about 1/3 inch out of place and the guitar was detuned. I waited 24 hours and retuned the guitar perfectly and reordered another case. This one was now unusable but amazingly protected my bass inside. highly recommended for doing what it is supposed to do, protect your prized instruments.

      I literary just put this case on the garbage, after receiving my new Reunion Blues bass gig bag.

      I have sewn (myself) the falling apart shoulder straps of the SKB case so many time, it is unreal. This is the lowest quality product I have ever purchased. If I never see this case from now, until the rest of my life - it will still be too soon.

      Very surprised to see good reviews about this case. This is a astonishingly bad quality bass guitar case, especially if you play an old p or j bass, which are heavier. Then this case really starts to show its cheap quality.

            Comments about SKB Universal Electric Bass Soft Case:

            The only thing I don't care for are the shoulder straps that can be used like a back pack. I would take them off if possible. Other than that, this case is perfect for my needs. I bought my bass guitar used and it didn't come with a case. When I travel to the jam space or gig, this case is lightweight and easy to carry. It provides excellent protection. I bought a neotech mega bass strap and I am able to fit it in the case without having to take it off my bass. I noticed people complained about lack of space, but mine had some wiggle room (probably because mine is not a huge Fender Bass). This is a solid case and I would buy it again.

                Comments about SKB Universal Electric Bass Soft Case:

                Works great. Carry like a soft bag but work like a hard case. Fit my 5-string bass tightly and protects very well. The only drawback I encountered is that I have a leather strap which can't be folded and I can't put the strap anywhere in the bag. A bit more room for the strap would have been great.

                Comments about SKB Universal Electric Bass Soft Case:

                I have a Ken Smith left handed bass. I bought the SKB case because it said universal, but when I got it, my bass didn't fit in the precut slot. I'm actually still using the case, the foam inside is molding to my bass. Other than that, I love everything else about the case. I get to carry it like a soft cover case (or hard cover if I want to), and I get the firmness of a hardshell case. The best of both worlds. I recommend this case, but be aware if you're a lefty (playing a left handed bass).

                My new Fender P-bass came with a gig bag. I prefer cases because most gig bags don't protect the instrument well when it's loaded with all the other gear for a gig.
                This soft case provides protection for the neck,
                headstock and body. It is very lite in weight. Pockets for a strap, cable and other accessories. It seems well made.

                  When I ordered this case I thought if I don't like it, I can always send it back. Now I am planning on adding a second one.Very light and sturdy not like that flimsy foam in other bags. Because it's light its easy to just sling over your shoulder and go. There is a little neck block compartment that you can store your tuner and picks, and small items. Then the larger outer pocket for cables, strings maybe an mp3 player. Also a pocket just for your strap.

                  excellent case (it's not really a gig bag, but better). Light weight, fits my Schecter C4 bass like a glove. Looks great. easy carry. Good assembly, good sewing.
                  Wish they woulda used better zippers, they catch and hang. I've lubed them with silicone spray so i hope they last. If the main zipper fails I don't know how i'll keep it shut, there's not an altermate method for closing. they should have provided a few snap overs straps in case zipper jams. could be bungee cords in my future to strap it shut, but i'm hoping for the best. woulda given 5 stars except for the zippers.
