You may have seen other reviews on this item that slam the product because the violin bass does not fit into the case. Although this is true, it only takes about fifteen minutes to make a few adjustments and the bass will fit perfectly. I have to admit, I was skeptical about purchasing this case after I read this complaint on several different web sites. But for such a low price, I thought I would give it a try. I own a Hofner Violin Bass, and sure enough, when my case arrived it would not close when the bass was in the case. All I had to do was remove the 4 screws from the center piece that holds the bottom section of the neck of the bass (where it attaches to the body), and cut about an inch or so off the bottom. This center piece was too high preventing the lid from shutting. I made sure I left extra fabric to guarantee that I covered the bottom cut and bam - the bass now fits. I have to admit that you would think a case that is advertised to fit the violin bass would in fact fit, but as I mentioned earlier, for the price it was a small inconvenience. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it needed some personal touches in order for it to fit; otherwise, the case is great.

This case is supposed to fit the Hofner Violin Base, however it does not. Since this was the second case I had ordered with the first returned back for the same reason and because I needed a case for my Hofner I decided to have this case modified. So I took it to a furniture repair shop and they fixed it (only took 10 minutes and $10). So my Hofner fiits nicelly within it. Other than that this case for the price is good.

      Just bought a rogue vb100 and needed a case for it. I read a review after I had ordered this case that it only fit the Hofner violin bass, however, I can tell you that this case does indeed fit the rogue vb100. Perfect size and keeps it protected for half the price of any other case out there. Would highly recommend.

        • Practical working case for the Horner Ignition

        Comments about Musician's Gear Electric Bass Case Violin Shaped:

        The Violin Bass case arrived today packed well and delivered quickly. The case is basic, sturdy, and feels solid. My Horner Ignition fits snugly with no adjustments. All the latches were in good working order. The outside is a basic black and the padding inside is up to the job. Storage inside the case fits a narrow strap and a tuner with a little extra room. What hard cases may lack in storage space versus a gig bag they make up for, in my opinion, sheer protective capability and this one seems up to the task of absorbing the dings so my bass doesn't. The price also makes this is a good buy unless for some reason you have a real desire to pay a lot more for a Hofner case. The one drawback to this case, and it's not a deal breaker for me, is a rather oddly placed handle that can make carrying this case neck forward kind of uncomfortable. If you lead with the body of the instrument it's not that bad and since that's usually how I carry a case this is not an insurmountable problem. It is, though, a design issue that the manufacturers should address to make this very good case a great one. This case is nothing fancy but it's also not a cheap throw away either. I believe the average guy who wants to keep his violin bass well protected will find this very suitable to the task and very easy on the wallet.
