  1. Anyone have any pics of the inside of a Fender Molded case for bass (what else?)?
  2. Not sure why you want pics,the inside of the molded cases are pretty boring to look at :p
    Go to www.fender.com and they may have some pics of differant cases?

    Well, I have Fender molded case, and the inside is black, and is fitted for a Jazz Bass. If you got one that was molded for a P-Bass, I'm sure a P would fit in snug as a bug. Unless you have the bass that it was molded for, I doubt anything else would fit. There is a small compartment that you could fit a tuner and a strap in.

    I am pretty sure that the molded case will fit a P or a Jazz. The one that I got with my P is shaped like a jazz, but the P fits in it. It doesn't hold my Jazz V though:( .

    The molded cases are molded to a particular body shape. I wish they were universal to fender basses, but I guess that would be an engineering masterpiece to fit the different styles of bodies. When I got my P bass case, the store had a P bass deluxe (I think) case on sale for 60 dollars, but my standard P wouldn't fit in it.
  7. It has been my experience that the "Standard" Fender molded bass cases will fit any Jazz or Precision bass, standard or deluxe, 4 or 5 string (I've owned them all and they fit quite nicely).

    However, the bigger rectangular Tolex/Tweed cases are a little more particular. You can put a P in a J case and it will be a little loose. You can't put a J in a P case.

    Fender used to make a "Deluxe" molded case that only fits the deluxe models, J or P.

    i have a MIA p bass. with molded case. i like a lot this case because is light and more protective than a gigbag. but in my molded case there is not enough room for a jazz bass. it's routed for the precision only...

    I have a molded case for my Geddy Lee Jazz, and P basses will fit in it too. I have tried it. The Jazz was a bit of a tight fit at first, but it fits like a glove now.

    My American Deluxe P came with a molded case that was specifically designed for it, and my jazz won't fit in there. Make sure you check your bass in the case you're looking at.
