    hey. couldn't find a topic for this so it's here. ANYone know of where i could find SOME kind of case that would fit an ibanez destroyer II bass??? (yes the big ugly awkward 80s orange ones ha ha) i'm using a gig bag for a friggin acoustic bass now and it's ridiculous ha ha. all floppy and stuff. i've seen hardshell cases on like ebay but they go for a fortune and had NO luck in getting any reply from ibanez directly. any ideas? anyone have one? thanks for any help with this.

    Wish i could help, but I can't. I wanted a hard case, so in the end I gave up and ordered a custom-sized case from hybrid cases and cut the foam to fit.

    Cost almost as much as the destroyer. But it sure looks great, which is of course the whole point. (Although actually I get quite good tone out of the thing, to my surprise.)

    I've got the bag listed (had it since Jan 2011). My destroyer came is a regular bass case with the insides removed and a couple pieces of cut foam glued in places to hold it snug. I didn't keep the hard case because it was REAL beat up.

    Yeah mine had no case and i just got it all set up and with new pickups. Taking it out on its maiden voyage tonight and i might have to "jaco" it. Might try GC but i bet they have nothing. If they don't ill just order that bag. Thanks!

    Pics? I disassembled mine again... once I'm set back up, it's getting a kahler and tort binding.

    disassembled it, cleaned it, just installed Dimarzio's in the original covers, and the bridge was pretty nasty so i threw on a black one I had laying around.

    Nice! my first 'playable' bass was the red single pickup version... I had the same midlife GAS and bought the bound black PJ version. I had Delanos and a Bee pre wired up in it before putting the pieces in a box. I'm still not done with a MAJOR house gut/rebuild so I haven't got to finishing the Destroyer.

    Bump for any info on an easily available hardshell case for a Destroyer bass. Any ideas would be appreciated.
