Can you imagine a professional bass guitarist arriving to a gig with no case for their instrument? It can't be argued that cases and gig bags are essential music accessories, and considering how many incredible bass guitar cases there are on today's market, there simply isn't an excuse for not owning one. In fact, Musician's Gear, SKB, Fender, Road Runner and countless others are all known for their bass guitar cases, and in this catalog you'll find them all offering their own soft-shell and hard-shell options.
So which bass guitar case is most suitable for you? There's really no right or wrong answer, but one important thing to consider is how often you travel to and from gigs and rehearsals with your instrument.

This model fits almost any bass guitar and features a rugged, weather-resistant, 600-denier ballistic nylon exterior. It also has padded backpack straps and two convenient exterior pouches for all your essential accessories like picks and extra strings.
