  2. Ok so i did some more searching, and came across this great site. http://www.reliablehardware.com/index.asp it has all of the parts that you would need to build your own ata type case or otherwise. it turns out that the plastic is a laminate that you add to the plywood.... i thought it was a special pre-made thing. hwo knew. sorry for the waste of space.

    cool thanks for the info nick. I was thinking about making a fitted case for one of my basses today. My boss is an ex-stucco guy so he can get me the hook-up on foam that would work for the padding. I was debating on trying to find a skb like carcass or making the the case out of playwood.
