Bass Case Advice Needed

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by John C Scott, Jan 28, 2005.

  1. I know there may be many answers to my question, but I wanted anyones thoughts on this...

    I have a longscale acoustic bass guitar, measuring 47" (122cm) from tip to toe, 17" (44cm) across the widest part, and 4.25" (11cm) deep.


    I haven't travelled with it much, but in April I am hoping to fly to Vienna with it, so I need to get a decent case. But something not too heavy with backstraps would be really good too.

    It was quite cheap but I love it, it only cost £150($250) and so it would be crazy to spend more on the case than the guitar, any good websites or brands to recomend? Any ideas?

    TIA - John. :bassist:
  2. If you love it, buy a sturdy box or packing case for it and pad it out like a guitar case. Can be very cheap to do and save a great instrument from damage.
