    This is a weird one. It's an Incase gig bag, never used.

    I bought it on a whim, based on the great rep for Incase bags.

    For pictures, see: http://gallery.me.com/joebone1

    Note that the Fender P/J is NOT part of the package!

    This is a full-featured bag - all of the protective mojo for which Incase bags are prized (dig the rubber feet that surround the endpin, the neck support inside, and the semi-rigid interior walls, that you can't see in the pix). It also includes a detachable backpack, and a great strap system.

    So what's the problem? The bag is snug. I'm not sure it would fit a J bass, and my 5-strings challenge it. See the pictures, and you'll see what I mean.

    That said, those of you with smaller-format axes (modern G&L; EBMM; scale less than 34") could not do better than what this bag has to offer. It's not working for me, but it may well work like a dream for you!

    Yours for $70, plus shipping.

    Any chance you could take measurements of your P/J to give us an idea of what the usable dimensions of the bag are?

    I have the same bag. I have used it for years with both 4 and 5 string J basses. I agree that the fit is snug, but the bag works very well for these basses. At least for me. YMMV. A free bump for a great bag!

    I'll take that bass off your hands so you can buy something that fits the case! Beautiful. :D

    Thanks. That P/J is my last 4-string as I now almost always play fivers. It is a Fender CS with 22-fret ebony board - looks to be from early '90's, when Phil Kubicki was involved with Fender. It has some dings and scratches, but it also sounds divine, as I replaced the EMGs (???) with Nordstrands and the J pickup is like in a '70's position.
