    I'm hoping that someone out there has one of these and can check the internal measurements for me. I want to get a Fender hardshell case (the ones like these which are made by G&G) for my Alleva-Coppolo LM5, but I'm not sure if the fit will work. My bass is 47" long from the strap pin to the tip of the headstock, and the internal dimensions for the Fender case are listed at exactly 47". I'm trying to determine if that will be too tight.

    I may be in a unique position with my bass because it's somewhat of a hybrid in terms of the Coppolo models and their changes over the years - Jimmy changed the headstock design slightly and also widened the body shape around the time that mine was built. I have the new headstock with the old (standard full sized jazz bass) body size. I called him about it because he actually had some G&G cases made for his basses, but his current batch is both wider and longer than the standard size to fit his current specs. This would probably be too wide for my bass, but I'm wondering if the standard G&G cases would be long enough.

    Thanks!

    I have a 68 AVRI P-bass with a very similar case.

    The case is 48" long. The distance inside (from headstock end to strap button) is 47" long.

    Don't know if that helps.

    Yep that helps...I'm thinking that it'll be a tight fit but should work.
