    Wait, doesn't the 5-string bass require one more case than the 4-string? I mean, this is just conjecture, I don't know for certain, 'cuz I blew all my money buying eight cases for my 8-string bass. You guys don't have all your strings individually cased?

    Pretty much, in the case there's enough wiggle room for the additional neck width.

    Yes, but be careful about the tuners on the treble side. The one shown in Possonby's avatar illustrates the problem perfectly. The typical gig bag may allow the headstock to rest on the tuner(s) if / when you set it down with the handle up - quite vulnerable (believe me, I've learned). This should not a problem with a hard shell case as long as the neck is secured and it doesn't slide around when closed, like it can with old worn out Fender cases.
