I was worried that we wouldn't find a gig bag that was tailored for the size of an acoustic bass, but this bag is perfectly sized for the Ibanez AEB5E Acoustic-Electric Bass my son has. Biggest pluses are that the padding is very good and it has lots of pockets. The arm straps are not padded, though, but that's the only negative, and not that significant as far as we're concerned.
This bag is well worth it for those who bought the Dean Acoustic Bass. I bought the bass because I liked the Acoustic sound, the looks, the fact that I can play without an amp and most importantly, the portability for any outdoor experience. Of course to do this without destroying the beast involves having a case. In the beginning all I saw was the expensive hard case. I tried EVERY gig bag I could find, even the 'jumbo' ones for big guitars, they may fit the body but the head of the neck always stuck out about 5 inches, no reason spending good money on a gig bag for that I thought. Since no one had any for in store pick up I ordered this from GC online. I am very pleased with the bag as far as utility goes. It holds the bass just fine, good space for it with just a hair excess to allow for easy zipping. The bottom pouch is massive. I can imagine it easily fitting a practice amp, music books, a tune up box, etc. just fine. There are two things about this bag that are DIFFERENT than the photos shown! The first is actually a plus in my eyes, it has a small pouch near the top of the bag. This is great for holding my guitar strap, I also have a little plastic waterproof cigarette/lighter case with my picks and that fits fine with the strap and has a bit more space, very nice. Second thing different (and this is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is the backpack straps are WAY different. These photos show the straps being bonded to the bag and made of thick cushiony material. The straps that came with the bag are just like any other gig bag straps. Granted they have swivel hooks to connect to the bag and rubber stress pads, but deep down inside they are just basic straps and nothing near as fancy feeling or looking as the image shown. One good thing about this could be if the straps break, the photos make it seem like they are a part of the bag so you are SOL, where if these break, well you can easily replace them, so I suppose I can easily upgrade them but I did kind of like the idea of the thick straps coming with the bag. Aside from that everything is good. The color of it looks better in person than the photos do, I thought it was kinda ugly but necessary, now that I see it I'm starting to like it more. I highly recommend getting this bag if you have a Dean or other Acoustic bass, those monsters are just too big for anything else. Now I can hike with it, take it to camp outs and with the guitar on my back it is easy to move around. Don't let it kid you into thinking it'll vanish like a Uke does, you will still have a good foot or so of neck sticking out above your head, watch out for door ways or low branches! Well worth the money, feels like it is good construction, lots of padding. It would be 5 stars if the photos were the exact same as what I got.
This bass bag is very good. Has lots of room, and nice big pockets. The only complaint that I have is the color. It is UGLY, but its a good bag for me. Also, it has great padding and can withstand alot of force.
