    It's a PJ-535 'boxer' bass, ca 1986 from Japan. 32 inch scale, and the overall length is 43 inches, counting the bottom strap button. I'm not seeing anything at Gator, maybe not looking in the right place...

    I have a Steinberger I modded with a new mahogany body, so it's an odd length, a little too big for a guitar case, too small for a bass case. I went to GC on a good day, and they let me scrounge through a pile of cases till I found one that fit, a Roadrunner. It's a decent quality ABS case, good enough for home storage or occasional gigs, wouldn't put it on a plane. Gators look about the same construction. I'm building a Rick clone that's a 33.25" scale, also found a Roadrunner case for it at GC. Most of the case sellers don't have interior case dimensions listed, so your best bet may be a schlep to GC.

    Gator is pretty diligent about listing interior case dimensions:
    http://www.gatorcases.com/p/16278-2461/gtsa-gtrbass (scroll down to the bottom right where it says "Product Specs")

    SKB is pretty diligent about listing interior case dimensions too:
    Pro Rectangular Electric Bass Case | SKB Music / ProAV

    Hiscox seems to be pretty good about listing interior case dimensions too:
    Electric Guitar Case Range

    Halo Guitars lists their interior dimensions:
    Halo Custom Guitars | Universal Hardshell Case for Bass (click on "Specifications" mid-page)

    Fender lists their interior dimensions just as an overall L x W, not nearly as comprehensively as those other manufacturers:
    Precision Bass® Multi-Fit Hardshell Case, Tweed w/ Red Poodle Plush Interior | Fender Cases
