DeArmond Cases

  1. does anyone know were i can get a hard shell case for a DeArmond Pilot Plus Bass? if i take it to sam ash or guitar center do u think they can get a case and make it fit the bass i have? thanx
  2. I really need that info too. My son has a DeArmond guitar... an M77 I believe. Anyway, his guitar is supposed to be an duplicate of a Guild Bluesbird and there is even a Squire copy, but NONE of the cases fit. I've had my local shop order me in several different cases and none of them work.

    For my pilot + 5 i have an SKB Standard [i think, the little bar code thing on the actual case said deluxe but it doesn't look like the other deluxe ones i've seen] & it fits pretty well, it fits my jazz better & since the pilot body shape is a shunken jazz shape it fits good. When i used it as a flight case for the pilot i just put rolled up bubble wrap where it could wobble. On the M77 case, good luck-not tryin to sound so grim but good luck, it'll be a hard search since DeArmonds have been out for awhile [discontinued for awhile]. Thats all
  4. would a coffin case work with it? i really like those:D

    I don't have a clue if a coffin case will fit it-i haven't used one & thus have no experience w/them. I know my 2 other cases fit it [they're both generic box cut cases {a fender tweed & an imitation fender black tolex}] thats all.

    Try the Bass Place down in AZ - they seem to buy up a lot of FMIC's closeout stuff. I was able to get a case for my DeArmond Starfire Bass through them.
  7. My Pilot Plus V fits in the TKL hardcase from -- about $60.

    I finally found a great fitted case for my M-72 guitar, too! A DEAN EVO case is a PERFECT fit for the DeArmond M series; about $100 from your Dean dealer. Mine took 3 days to come in, and it is indeed a perfect fit.

    It's not such a surprise that the TKL case fits. TKL was the supplier of all DeArmond OEM hard cases.
