    Will a 5 string Fender American Jazz bass fit into a 4 string jazz bass case?
  2. Is it 5 inline or 4+1? I had a 4+1 that was in a Fender chainsaw case, and the previous owner had to modify the inside of the case to make room for the G string tuner key. I have a G&G Fender rectangular case and I was able to put the 4+1 in it with plenty of room to spare. I would say that anything that has extra room around the headstock should be able to hold a 4+1 and all should be able to hold a 5, unless the space for the neck is too narrow.
