More unsolicited kudos for (all hail) Bob Gollihur. I purchased the Kaces III bass bag he sells on his site, purely on the basis of the reputation he's acquired here. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The bag arrived just today (one week after I mailed my personal check) and on cursory overview, it looks like a tough, really well-designed bag. The handles are in all the right places, the workmanship is great, and what Bob says is true: it is really is a breeze to get on and off the bass. The price was right -- the bag is at least as good or better than others I looked at for (a lot) more money. Certainly more than my bass deserves! Thanks again, Bob.
