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.

      Great Case - Perfect fit for Hofner Ignition

      By Drew

      from Phillipsburg, NJ

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

      I purchase this for my son, a Hofner Ignition bass. We considered the Hofner case which was over 2 times the cost and now we are very glad that we did. First, it fits the ignition bass perfectly. It is a snug fit but no adjustments were necessary. The case material (inside and out) is of nice quality and similar to more expensive cases I have seen. It has 5 latches to keep the case securely closed and comes with one locking latch for added security. No specific cons so far and we are very please with the value and quality.

      Bargain

      By Karen Greenspan

      from Napa, Ca

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

      This case was really a bargain, but I think it is a good deal anyway. The violin bass will not fit the case out of the box. You need to unscrew the four screws that keep the neck holder piece in place. I did this easily with a phillips screwdriver. Then remove the holder and the felt. You will see that it is mostly foam. I used a small hand saw to remove 3/4 inch of foam, rewrapped the piece with the felt and screwed it back into the case. The bass fits perfectly now. The modification took 10 minutes tops.

      Nice case!

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

      I bought the classic hofner violin bass and also this case. Despite a little and extremely easy adjustment on the neck bridge inside the case to allow the bass to fit in, the product is very good and well finished. The bass does not get loose inside the case.

      2 min configuring the case to fit your Viola

      By remigio holmes

      from San Diego, CA

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

      I give this case 4 3/4 stars. The only reason not 5 stars is because it takes a little configuring to make it fit the Viola bass you have(NBD)and the fact that in the product description this fact is never mentioned. I have the Epiphone Viola bass so I mesured the case to fit this bass. It only takes a person that is 2% smarter then the case and someone with a super basic knowledge of tools and their uses, so anyone with a standard philips screwdriver and a hacksaw blade or a serrated knife can make the ajustments needed to fit any Viola bass. One shot is all someone gets before this case is renderd just about useless. First DO NOT rip the neck support out, if you look at the case the'er four(4) screws holding the neck support in the case(2% smarter). Remove the screws take out the neck support and cut in a straight line across the bottom of the neck support however much is determined need to be cut off to fit the Viola bass owned, I have the Epiphone model so I removed just over 1/2 inch. Place the neck support back in to the case screw it back in place and it's done. This is very simple to do, I could go into further detail, but I don't want to insult anyone. A four(4) year old could make this ajustment to the case without even reading this review, it's all commonsense.

      This case has a perfect fit for my brand new Hofner Ignition Special Edition Ed Sullivan Show Bass. I didn?t have to modify it instead of what I read in other reviews. I am completely satisfied with the product.

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

      Nice case. Japanese violin bass fit really well, though I agree with the other reviewers that the neck support should be a little shorter. For me this case will see very light duty, and is perfect that little bit of extra protection.
