    I've got an old 1967 Vox Sidewinder bass that needs a case. Can anyone recommend one? The problem is that the bass is very long - it measures 49" long. Plus it's a hollow body so the case needs some depth too.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply to my query about a case to fit my Vox Sidewinder. You say it fits your Lyle bass... Can you tell me the Hagstrom's overall dimensions? You see, the Vox is all of 49" long from tip to tail! and a more standard 16" wide.

    Curious if you ever found a case that fits? I just ordered the Epi Jack Cassidy and discovered it is 1" too short (otherwise perfect proportions). Very frustrating. 2nd case I've had to return. Any info appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm still on the lookout for one. I'm cheap.
    What was the bass of yours that didn't fit?
