I drive a mini van and I've just been folding the back seat backs forward and resting my bass on them on it's back. Since it's at an angle the scroll is up in the air not even close to hitting the ground. Is this acceptable? I don't want to put it on its side and risk it falling over. Any other tips for bass transportation? This certainly isn't a very hot topic on the web. I've been playing since middle school and now that I'm in college and have a job I just bought my first own bass. It's an Eastman 305 and the thing is so beautiful compared to what they have at school. In high school I played an Eastman VB80 and liked it enough that I decided I wanted the same one only nicer and that's what I have.
