Good gig bag for Jazz 4-string?

    Tired of schlepping the hard case around, so I bought an inexpensive Fender bag and it's pretty awful; the strap placement is weird which leads me to believe that buying a more expensive one from them won't be any better. Had an old Gator bag here that I liked for another bass, but it doesn't fit the Jazz (about an inch or two too short). Did a quick search here and can't find any recent threads on this. Forgive me if I didn't dig deeply enough. What gig bags should I be looking at?

    Very happy with my Gator ProGo. It is kinda heavy but very protective. Most places have them for $150.00

    Actually I do,

    Seem like there's a bunch of talk about GBs on that search.
    I've deleted the search link - it went nowhere.

    Thanks. I don't mind heavy as long as it carries well across my shoulder. Looking at it online now, and it looks pretty solid with a decent sized compartment for cables, etc.

    The Mono M80, Vertigo and Bass Sleeve will also fit the bill. There are also other good offerings from Gator -the ProGo has been mentioned, and I would also recommend the Transit. I hear good things about the Reunion Blues RBX and the Gruvgear Gigblade bags as well.

    Have we missed any? :) Toss the Mooradian, or the Protec Contego into the fray while we're at it.

    Seriously, there are so many good high-quality gig bags on the market these days, it's almost a problem of Decision Paralysis! Not like ~30 years ago when every bag was basically a vinyl sock with some token 0.25" foam. Spend over ~$130 on a soft case nowadays and the world's your oyster.

    Do these bags have space for some of the smaller solid state amps on the market? Like the Mesa 800 or a Tone Hammer. Also cables, a strap, and a small pedal tuner?

    Cables, straps and tuners, no problem. For the most common offerings from Gator, Mono et. al. you might be pushing it with an amp as well, and even if you managed it there wouldn’t be much room for anything else. The Mono bags have an option to strap on the Tick bag, which would probably be able accommodate a small amp.
