    A very solid case. A little snug for my Stingray 5, but that will open up some with time.

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    After I got my Ibanez BTB675-NTF got worried about how to protect such a beautiful piece, this baby is just what I was looking for: light, nice looking, sturdy and not that big case.
    My bass fitted like a glove and now I feel that it's protected as it was needed.

    Great!!

    By Patrick Kelley

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    This case looks great and the inside is awesome. Black and red you cant go wrong I also like the idea of locking up my bass not very great if you need something out of the case real fast but i feel the bass is safer in its case.

    Nice case

    By EDWIN SHELDON

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    Seems sturdy and well made, though I haven't yet subjected it to the true test - airline travel! Fits my extra-long Fender Jazz Bass 24 like a glove!

    Great Case!

    By Bob Knight

    from Minnesota

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    It's all black. What more could you want? Seriously, though, construction is very sturdy, although when I read the other reviews here about people shipping their basses in them, I've gotta wonder. I come from an era where, if you wanted to fly an instrument, only an Anvil-type flight case would NOT give you a heart attack when thinking of baggage handlers touching your baby. But maybe they're nicer to instruments nowadays. The all-black look truly is great - even the valence is black. The only spoiler is the ATA lock, which is chrome. Also, one criticism: The latches are plastic, not metal. I'm all for using newer, better, lighter materials, but have some concern about how these latches will last. Guess I'll find out. The case has a lifetime warranty, so I s'pose this will be covered if I ever have a problem. The plush inside is very nice, some of the nicest I've seen. It has dual accessory compartments (sweet!), one on either side of where the neck rests. The padding is solid and well-configured. The handle is actually placed so that the case is well-balanced when carrying it - I like that, and it's not always the case with instrument case design. I'm confident that this case will suffice for my mostly local use. I don't let anyone else handle my instruments, but with this case, I may relent on that. And if I ever DO have to fly it, I guess I might risk it. Everybody else is doing it! Did I mention it's all black?

    Looks great - will it last?

    By Bob Knight

    from Minnesota

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    I received this case a couple of days ago, and, after a little nail-biting about whether my Carvin Bunny Brunel 5-string would fit (it does, nearly perfectly), got my bass and all my accessories inside. The accessory compartments (two; one on either side of the neck) are ample, with no "lids" to take up extra space. The plush is very nice, and this case looks as though it will protect very well. The valance and hardware are all black, so this case looks very good and high-tech. The construction is very solid. It is pretty heavy, however - 16 lbs.! A big change from my venerable gigbag. Haven't had it out to a gig yet (will this weekend), but it looks like it will take good care of my baby. One warning: The latches are plastic, not metal. I'm all for using better, lighter materials, but hope that these hold up as well as metal ones would. In case you haven't read all the specs, this case features TSA locks. From the looks of it, I wouldn't hesitate to fly this case. Will report back after it's got a few gigs under its belt.

    Excellent Buy

    By Brian Berger

    from If it were only that simple!

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    I used this to transport my 5-string from the US to Europe when moving there a few years ago. I had wanted to loosen the strings considerably and had forgotten; the bass showed up in tune - I'm serious. I flew Phoenix - London - Prague and everything was fine. I also, due to the well-planned interior, placed two pedals and other gear inside, which is guaranteed to get searched from TSA due to the wiring. So, the TSA locks proved helpful and the case is not much bigger than a normal hard case making it easy to get around. I used the case for basic transport while living in the EU and then returned to the US. Now, three years since buying it, other than a big sticker from Lufthansa Airlines the case looks brand new. This is really a very good value even at twice the price. I highly recommend this product.

    Hasn't flown yet but....

    By Lydia

    from Fairhope,AL

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    I have a Schecter Diamond Series, Left-Handed Bass. It's smaller and lighter than most basses, which I love, but rather tricky to find a case for it for flying especially (and did I mention Left-Handed? You'd think there were only 5 of us on the planet!!!) I recently purchased this case and like it though of course I have to add my own padding around the body & headstock as it's not a fitted case. It cradles the neck well. The case is sturdy and reminds me of Samsonite luggage so it should be able to take some beating throughout the airline journey. Am curious about the longevity of the latches as they're the type that slide up and down to latch/unlatch and seem a bit fragile. To my mind, a foolproof latching system is a simple lock down w/out such moveable parts. But there're four of them so the thing shuts tight for now. Wish the back hinges had more protection around them but for the price (I got in on sale to boot), if it gets my bass safely thru just one European tour, it's done it's job! I imagine it'll do more than that though and I like the fact that it doesn't weigh a bloody ton. For now, I have to give it 4 Stars because I haven't braved the airlines yet.

    Airline proof protection

    By JG

    from Santiago, CL

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    Got this when I bought a bass in the USA to take it to my home country. Checked it in as luggage, and, as fate would have it, the bass didn't arrive. They neglected to get it off the plane on my stop, so it went wherever the plane went afterwards. It spend four days flying all over the USA due to the airline's ineptitude. I landed on Friday morning, got the bass on Monday afternoon. The case had its share of scratches and had been roughed, but the bass was intact.

    Awesome.

    By Hunter

    from Alabama

    Comments about Gator ATA Polyethylene Bass Case:

    This case is awesome! It looks good on the outside and inside, and does what it is supposed to; protect your investment. It has a red suede material on the inside that looks incredible, and two built in compartments to store straps, tools, tuners, etc. It is bulky, but it still isn't very heavy at all. I play a Schecter bass with a 35" scale length and it fits perfectly. Good buy.
