    I'm not sure if this belongs here, bump at will. i just got a double gig bag so i can bring my fretted and fretless to school, can i leave them in there, essentially resting on top of each other? I plan on leaving my fretless out on astand, but for now is it ok?
    thanks,
    chris
     
  2. on top of each other?!
    NO WAY HOSAY!

    That's a bda idea.... unless you want your bodies to get all scratched up. Plus, if you drop the bag or something, the weight of the fall and the bass could break one of'em.

    well, not literally on top of each other, there's a padded divider between them; it's like someone sewed two gig bags together. but is it ok for one to basically rest on teh other? will the bridge get messed up?
     
  4. Should be fine. I have two Strats in a double gig bag, and even with the floating trems and all, I've had no problems.

    Which one did you get?

    I've never used one and can't tell you anything about how safe this is for your basses other than guess since they sell a double gig bag it can't be awful, but I'd suggest you put your basses in so that the backs of the basses are facing eachother against the middle layer so theres no way the bridges could poke/scratch/ruin anything else.

    I just got a Ritter dbl bag... it's killer, tons of pockets, but weighs a tonne with Jazz and a 5v'er.

    yeah i got the fender one from MF, it seems squishy enough and has just enough room for my two straps and mxr bass di (goin back to school travellin' light :crying: ). though, for 2 J's it's freakin heavy. oh, idk how i would feel about back to back, just because your back isn't completely straight (and if it is, kudos on the good posture) i figured any curvature like that probably wouldn't be great for intonation.
