I just got off the phone with Gary at Tuki Covers. I placed an order for a custom gig bag, with pocket for my VBass since I'm tired of the shipping date being pushed back for the hard case. He said that they'll make it sometime next week, so I should have it in about 2 weeks. I'll post pics, and such, after it arrives. I think I'll be happier with a gig bag than a hard case, anyway, since I'm the only one who will really be moving it.
