    Great protective case - insert gig bag into this shell and you're ready to travel! It has some minor scuffs and wear, but is in good shape overall. Local pick-up only; I'm willing to meet within a reasonable drive from Denver metro area.

    I got one of these back when I was touring full time. Best idea ever. I had one of the prototypes from SKB, it was an ugly, Primer colored grey! Far easier to walk through an airport with, versus the Calzone/Anvil case I had prior. No roadies or help... that thing was a nightmare!

    GLWTS!

    I just finished a tour overseas in January using one of these- 9 countries in 30 days and at least 13 international flights. This case really helped me to avoid oversize luggage fees and kept the instrument completely safe from harm. So much easier to 'roll' this case through an airport as opposed to schlepping a 30 lb ATA wood-and-metal-corners traditional flight case (I've done it before). The added bonus of being able to travel with your bass in the the gig bag once you have landed in your destination, leaving the hard shell at home, is a bonus.
    I spent many hours considering every other possible case solution for airline travel before deciding in this one.
    I own both the older version- with metal latches- and the newer version- with a nylon strap and TSA plastic latch. I use both versions for different types of travel. Sometimes I put just a single bass inside, sometimes I put 2 basses inside this case (but not when the case has to go through TSA or customs inspections).
    I highly recommend this solution- for airline travel or even for throwing your instrument(s) into a trailer or truck. Any TB members should feel free to PM me if you have any questions about applications and real-world experiences using this case.

    Thanks for the endorsement! These cases definitely have a strong fan base for obvious reasons. The one for sale here is the older style with metal latches.

    It's difficult to understand how good these really are until you have one.
