    Hey, i'm not sure if this is the rigth place to post this, if not, feel free to move it! :)

    Anyway, i'm going to buy a good quality hardshell case for my bass, and i'm looking for reccomendations! I've been looking at a Gator Deluxe case at a norwegian webshop (which is the only place i have for buying gear), and also a TKL.

    So, your opinions please!

    Thanks,
    -Erlend

    Don't know if you can get them there ,but I've bought several Hiscox cases.

    www.hiscoxcases.com

    It's about all I'd recommened for bass. One of my bases was saved by ione during a car crash -car and case expired, bass and myself survived!

    I'm kind of traditionalist. I love the G&G tweed cases....kind of a vintage look.

    Hiscox cases are superb - better than SKB in my opinion. I'd jump up and down on my Hiscox case, not so the SKB. You should be able to find a dealer online for Hiscox I'm sure.

    EDIT They do have dealers in Norway detailed on their site - click here

    Their standard EBS case fits P and J type basses. Rob Green at Status sends his instruments out in Hiscox cases - 'nuff said.
