    hello all, I recently purchased a 78 Gibson grabber and am in need of a hardshell case. Was wondering if anyone had an original case that would be willing to part with it or if anyone knows of any third party case (gator, sob, etc..) that will fit. Thanks for y’alls time

    I’m having the same problem finding a case for my G-3 man! I’m hoping I won’t have to resort to carrying it around in a coffin.

    I definitely don’t want a coffin case lol. I’m kinda leaning towards a mono case but I’m old school and i love hard cases. It’s just so hard to find a damn case lol

    Hiscox STD-EBP-B/S Standard Peardrop Bass Case - Black/Silver Somebody sent me this which looks good. Also I have started looking at semi acoustic cases as these have sort of similar body dimensions to grabbers.

    Hmm very interesting cases. Thanks for y’alls input. That shipping cost on the hiscox is brutal for me lol. If ain’t one thing it’s another right? Haha.

    She ain’t pristine but she sounds killer and that’s what matters! (I believe it has been refinished at some point from natural to black/sunburst) B98AE5BF-22D9-46DC-9303-29A6C6CF8FCA. 314381B2-0D9C-4422-A9C3-1395D2480AEF. 6CEFAB95-4CA2-477A-9786-F05857EA623E.

    Damn that’s a great looking bass. Solid pics for sure! What kind of amp are you going through? What’s your setup?

    Well that’s the thing... my bassplaying is only really a bedroom practice thing at the moment so I’m using an old GK 100w practice amp mainly right now lol. I’m planning on taking my career down the music route in the next few years. I have played a few small shows But nothing very impressive yet. A bit embarrassing really hah...

    I had one of the Epiphone reissues from awhile back (actually had two...wish I still did) and could never find a case for those things. Tried everything...had GC order in all kinds of oversized cases for big hollowbodies...everything I could think of. Nothing worked.

    I remember doing some research at the time and one guy saying the only case he could find for his was...a Coffin Case.

    I wish you better luck.
