    screaminglucy,
    I've got a hoffy club and have been wracking my brain trying to find a case. I think you found it with the Eastwood. Scale length is perfect. The catch is Eastwood only sells cases with a guitar or bass.
    I'm gonna look into special ordering from a known dealer.

    Please post here if you find anything alternatives.

    I used to have a 60's Club Bass. It fit into a Gibson Les Paul bass case.
    Here are some pics

    I bought and tried the Epi case. Fit great except one problem. The bass is to thick and the lid will not close. Anyone need an Epi case ? Ha ha.......

    Anyone else finding luck with a Les Paul case fitting (or not) their Hofner Club? Seems the Hofner Club cases are sold out at the moment so I'm looking for alternatives.

    I got an e mail from Rob Olsen at Hofner and he said the part number to order a case for a Club bass is H64VB2. I have no money now, but when I do, I am getting one for my Icon Club bass.

    E mail said any authorized Hofner dealer. I think Guitar Center is. That is going to be my first attempt.

    You are it's going to have to be patient. I am pretty sure those cases go from China to Germany and then to the dealer. I have been trying to get a case for my Senator bass for months and it is ordered, but I have been advised to not let my willingness to pay for something they sell get confused for Hofner's interest in getting it done.

    The Epiphone Allen Woody Rumblekat case might be worth a look.

    Yeah I just got a reply email back from Gary at North Coast Music and he's not sure when to expect them either, and says they can't be special ordered. They come from China and they get here when they get here.

    I will talk to Rob Olsen tonight. Old friend of mine. We go back over 20 years. He plays at an open mic at a little club. Since I just picked up a Club Bass, I will be interested in getting a case for it. Also, I will run it over to my brother to see if it fits in his Les Paul case.

    Has anyone finally settled this question? What is the best fit for the Icon Club? Sounds like lots of folks were buying recently from Hello Music and Ebay, so someone must have found a fit.

    As does mine. I really wish Hofner would have provided a case for the Icon Club bass, it seems not as many of these has been produced as the Icon violin bass, so maybe has not been a priority. Still, I presently take mine to gigs in a Waterstone gig bag for protection, even though it is not made for the Icon Club bass.
