This bass is really cool, i searched high and low to find one and bought it a month ago but as much as i want too i cant get used to a five string. This is the pro series which has all the same hardware and electronics as the german basses and is a big step up from the rockbass series. It did not come with a case or bag but i will ship it in a lull protec bag that it fits nicely in. If you've been wanting on of these, this one is the one, its brand new!!!
