Hi, this is my first post here. I did two different searches on this and I didn't find anything specific with the info I'm looking for. so here it goes. I want to buy a new bass from an online music store. If I buy it without a hard shell case, will it be shipped to me ok? The store is closed so they can't answer my question. I want to buy tonight because I have a coupon that expires tonight. I bought online before but I bought a guitar with a case and they shipped in the case. I'm just wondering if I should have a new bass shipped without a case. I'm worried about it being dropped, etc. Thanks!
