    Hi all, first time posting here, seems like a great community!

    I've just made a down-payment on my newest bass, a beautiful Patitucci signature model from Yamaha. Those of you who know the instrument know it's an absolute monster, and this is a problem - it won't fit any of the hard cases available at the store. I looked at the Yamaha website and they don't seem to make a custom case for it.

    Does anyone who plays one of these beasts have any ideas where I could get a hard case that will fit my new baby? The instrument pretty much cost me all my money, so I'm hoping to not have to get a custom one made.

    Yamaha has a hardcase for it. Pretty sure it's made by G&G in L.A., Ca. - Part number is GB20JP. I know because my TRB JP2 came with one - a handwritten hang tag was attached to the case handle - and also because the JP2 service manual lists "GB20JP" as the case for the bass. Maybe you can order one through Yamaha. Hope this helps - maybe you've already found a case.

    Why don't you have G&G make a case for you through one of their dealers. They did the one for my Lakland and it is beautiful.

    You could also call yamaha musical tech support or the Yamaha 24/7 resource portal. I find that when I call they give me the correct numbers for the resource portal. Personally I have a case that I only use when on the road. Most gigs and rehearsal I use the fender black suede case. It cost me about $100.00 bucks and is well padded. I have been using it since I got my bass in the late nineties.
