    My latest bass, a beautiful 1979 Gibson G-3, is going to need to be transported but there’s one problem... the body measures near enough 15 inches in width and I just can’t find any hard cases out there that have dimensions this wide. The Flying V style headstock is also wide so there is that to add to the list of difficulties... I thought it was worth a shot putting this out into this bass community to see if anyone knows of any cases that might be good. Thanks a lot for any help you can provide it’s very much appreciated :) I realise that there are a few original Gibson cases that pop up on eBay and such sites but they tend to be quite shabby (probably from being 40 ish years old!) so I was really looking for a new case to buy if possible.

    Maybe the Jack Casady Bass case by Epiphone might work as well, its a pretty large bass.

    Yea it’s strange how it’s kind of the same body shape and size as a semi acoustic. Thanks for your help.

    Just received this case today. It’s great! Almost as if it was made for the g3 shape. Thanks for helping me find it man!

    Thunderbird cases fit a lot of oversize basses.
