    Hi there, so I sort of lost interest in looking for a case for my hollow body 60s or 70s conrad bass some time ago but now i'm going to need to move it a lot, soon. I'm truly sorry for the bad quality of the picture. The dimensions are:
    17" from the widest part on the bottom across
    9.5" from the thinnest part of the body across
    12" widest part of cutaways (top of body)
    45" from top to bottom straight down the middle.
    or you can look at this horrible representation of it:

    Check Gator and SKB's websites. I believe they give dimensions for each of their cases.

    hm, nothing for hollowbodies though
     
  6. Do you need a hard case? There are a few bags that will fit that bass (try the red Roadrunner bag) but few hardshells. I have an Alembic with a similar shape but a longer neck, and I'm having a terrible time finding a decent hardshell for short money.

    Whats your budget? I know Anvil makes custom cases
     
  8. I just measured my Ibanez ASB140.

    Came out to 48" long, 11 1/2" cutaway, 9 1/2" waist, and 15 1'2" lower bout.

    It's pretty close, but I don't have the hard case for it, so I don't know if it would work for your bass. They're usually made to fit pretty snugly.

    Still no luck, I tried everything. Does anyone have a different artcore that they could measure? Because i believe there are 2 versions with 2 separate cases.
    thanks,
    alex
