    I just went out and spent $100 on a Fender molded case for my Geddy Lee Jazz. When I got home and put it in, it didn't want to fit, but now it will close. It looks to me as though it's molded for a P bass, but the salesperson at GC told me it would fit both.

    Is the Geddy Lee body a bit bigger than other Jazz bodies or do all Jazzes fit like this? It just doesn't look as though it's supposed to go in there, but I made it.

    I had the same problem when I bought a molded case for my Geddy. That case is a 'one size fits all' job.

    After a few times of taking the bass out and putting it back in, it works fine.

    If you want a perfect fit, the rectangular hardcase is a better option.

    Thanks embellisher, i thought you would be able to help.

    i'm not going to bring it back to GC. So even though it doesn't look as though it should fit, i'm keeping it.

    I told the salesperson that I wanted a clean case so I think that he went and took an MIA P out of it before bring it to me. Inside the little compartment under the neck he left that goodie bag with a cable [ugly] strap, polish cloth, and tool. whoo hoo!

    thanks again
     
  4. I dont think they're one size fits both. cause i have the jazz bass case, and it definatly doesnt fit my P.
