    There's an indentical bass branded as Aria, Pan and/or Diamond. Maybe others too. Early 70s Japanese. And nothing in common with other Epiphones, though it's a very fun bass to play.
    Mine is the Pan. And I found a dreadnought acoustic case that fits it nicely.

    +1. I use a dreadnought acoustic (TKL) case for my '65 Rivoli and it works well. Your Epi should be close in size. A Jack Cassady case might work.

    BTW I have the guitar version of this bass and hope to add the bass version to the herd one day. Matsomoku (sp) built these in early '70s.

    A big electric guitar case can fit, too. I have the same thing with a "Lyle" label, and keep it in a nice Epiphone "Dot Sheraton Casino" case (that's what they called it anyway.) It's very tight, but I think that's probably good.

    I have an Epiphone EA260 which I think is pretty much the same bass. I just checked and it fits nicely in my Epiphone branded Jack Casady hard case..

    Wow, thanks a lot, that's what I wanted. Yes, the bass is pretty much the same bass. Could you maybe send me a private message with a picture of the bass inside the case? That would be great!

    Thanks,

    Michi
