    I just picked up a Fender Coronado II and the case is falling apart.

    I also have a Epi 335 Dot and the body of the Coronado fits in the Dot case but obiously the bass is too long. I'm wondering if the JC case will work. Can some of you owners of Jack Cassady basses help?

    Idealy if someone could see if a Dot fit into the Cassady case would be the best way but just the internal case dimensions would help.

    Thanks,

    Siggy

    It should fit in the jack case. You dont see many of those basses around any more, where was that model made?. I hope it works out for you
     
  4. you could always try and find a place where they can fix the case....whichever is cheaper

    Thanks for your help, Could you tell me the inside length of your JC case? The Coronado is a shortscale however it is still 46" long.

    She's a 66 and made in the U.S. Designed by Roger Rossmeisl who came from Rickenbacher to head up Fenders R&D to develope accoustic and electric archtops to try to lure some sales from Gibson.

    I considered buying a Cassady sig. however I really wanted a shortscale because I'm starting to get arthritis. I do have a Allen Woody on order but who knows when that will show up.

    Thanks again,

    I can probably "FIX" the case with glue and duct tape, however it has a lot of character and I don't want to detract from it. I can get a case for around $80 if I can find one that fits.

    Thanks, Me too, she's got some interesting features: Single pole DeArmond PUs, both finger AND thumb rests. The bridge is independant (floating?) and the strings actually rest on rubber, binding around the F holes. And she's in great shape for a 37 year old!
