    I have had that exact case for about 5 years now and love it, very light but solid.
     
  4. Can't speak to that case specifically but I've never had a problem with any gator case. I do prefer SKB though.

  6. I've always had good luck with Gator cases, all our power amps and PA gear are in Gator cases. I prefer Coffin cases for my basses, but that's partially because of the look.

    I have one of those and while the case itself is fine, I don't like the latches, they're very "loose".

    I'm sure you'll be happy with it as long as you're not going to fly with it, but I'll be getting something else before the next time I'm taking my bass on a plane.

    I have a gator bass case. The only problem I had was the strap connecting the bottom half to the top half broke shortly after I got it. Besides that it's an okay case. Pretty solid. P.S. That's the same case I have.
