    Holiday Price change!

    I've been advertising this for quite a while now. Had a few inquiries but no real takers. I'm asking $1400 and I'll split the shipping with you.

    For sale is a brand new, never been used Christopher Detachable Neck Flight case. I bought this new in winter of 2015 (thru Quinn Violins in Minneapolis) in anticipation of my new custom built Kent McLagan bass but the dimensions are a bit different in the upper bout and sadly the bass does not fit this case so - it's time to sell it.

    These used to retail for $2250.

    Here is the info from Christopher:

    Do you think there is enough room in the case to have a light weight gig bag with the bass? My bass is very close in specs to the interior dimensions listed. Is the interior foam fairly stiff?

    Neal- the foam is soft and I think a lightweight bag would fit around the body of the bass and still allow the bass to be cushioned by the foam. There is a chance you could fold up the bag in between the bass and neck but I think the best way would be to pack the bass body inside the gig bag and fold the neck pocket over the top.

    I just need to go to my shop today and see what thin cover options there are. My bass is right on almost being too big on all the specs. I'm currently using a case extreme case but was looking for a smaller option

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like it will work. Good luck with the sale.

    Is this still for sale? Toying around with converting my bass into a neck-off in the next few months...
