I was looking for a bass case that was durable, flight-ready, and affordable. The cases I was looking at were $400-$500. Those cases didnt look great either. I heard that SKB is the perfect brand for me. Its exactly what i was looking for. All SKB cases are flight-ready, durable, reliable, and affordable. These locks are TSA approved (TSA is the department of government where they security check all luggage going onto airplanes) so you can lock it assured. I first thought metal locks were more reliable but these fiberglass locks are indestructible. Metal locks can unlatch when you dont want them to. These Fiberglass locks will close for sure and open at ease. All the other stuff and accessories you need to put in fit right into the compartment given. And most basses fit anyway so dont worry about that. The handle is comfortable and doesnt wear out your hand. I actually am in Japan with my Bass and it is in perfect condition. From LA to Japan, in perfect condition. Just get some fragile stickers. Just in case.

This thing is solid!

By Jake

from Nevada

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

This case is just flat durable. I accidentally DROVE OVER this case in my Nissan Sentra and feared the worst... but my bass was fine! The case was bowed a little bit in one spot and had a couple cracks in it but it did not cave in and I can still close it just fine. That is amazing to me because most cases would probably have flattened and destroyed the bass inside. Besides durability, its big enough to hold my 5 string bass, plus strap, cord, etc. My only criticism is that it doesn't have a small compartment to hold the little stuff, but that's just being picky. If you want a strong case that does its job of protecting your bass, and that you can take anywhere, go for it.

Awesome Case

By David Valdez

from Long Beach, CA

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

Im currently on tour with two bass cases. One of the cases is one of those big and bulky road cases. The other case is the SKB 44. After lugging both cases in and out of clubs I have to say (hands down) that the SKB is the way to go. It is about half as heavy as my other one and just as durable. The case is very slim and light. I highly recommend this case to all bass players. As soon as I get back from tour Im ditching my bulky case and buying another SKB44.

A Great Case!

By Shawn D. Smith

from Kingston, TN

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

This is one of the best cases you can buy for your bass! I own 5 of them! They fit my Fender Basses like a glove. They are rugged and built very well. You cannot buy a better bass case for the money.

SKB is the best...hands down

By Terry Wilson

from Los Angeles, Ca.

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

Hands down. SKB warranty support is the best. The best product, product support ever! Through years of airline baggage abuse with a constant attack by TSA and airline baggage handlers attacking my bass case. Even when Guitar Center refused to cover the warranty as they had agreed when they sold me the fine SKB cases. SKB has backed me. I quit trying to deal with GC and their mgmt. to get product support and the able staff at SKB has come through every time. I just returned from europe again. My SKB 44 case came back from Vienna on an Austrian/United set of flights with a fairly big hole near one of the corners. Crushed yet again by the talents of frustrated baggage peeps. SKB again has stepped up. For me...they are the only company on the planet to back their products 100% for me. Thank you SKB.

Great case "But "

By Keith Breunig

from Hubertus ,WI.

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

I have looked at a lot of bass cases in the last 3 weeks.I had to find one for my Lakland 5 string This case is built to be strong,and it is.I just don't like the neck craddle, it could be wider for a five string neck. It fits on top rather then in.

Perfect fit for my G & L Tribute L2000

By DON HOWELL

from Pittsboro, Indiana

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

With a 36-1/2" length, finding a quality hard shell case for my G & L Tribute was difficult. I ordered it from the warehouse planning to return the case if my G & L did not fit. Turned out that you would think this case was custom made for the G & L Tribute L2000. A perfect fit. And the quality of the case is better than I could expect. The way the interior is shaped, there is no room for the body or the neck to move when transporting, yet, it is not so tight that it puts pressure on the guitar. I highly recommend this case. It's better than the higher priced cases, lifetime guarantee, and I have heard it's the same company that makes the cases for Fender.

NIce Fender Jazz Bass Case

By Gary

from Mansfield, Texas

Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

This is a really nice case. It fits perfect. The hinges look a little bit bulky at first, but they are slick, tough, and easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone traveling with a Fender Jazz Base.

    let me say I travel weekly with a southern gospel band. This case has held up awesome every trip out. It protects my musicman ray5. This past weekend my case wound up under the steer tire of our 45ft tour bus.. case was destroyed.. But guitar had VERY minimal damage..2 broke strings and a tuning key...Called SKB and they are sending me a new case at no charge... not only is the warranty awesome.. But Protected my bass extremely well considering the circumstances.I mean my bass should have been destroyed.. You WILL NOT find a better case on the market today...Awesome case.. Awesome warranty.. Awesome customer service

    Awesome case

    By nathan rowell _

    from germantown, MD

    Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

    Picked this case up about a year ago, and have been abusing it since. It has taken it all and never blinked. I had one of those soft rectangular cases for a while, but all the zippers broke, feet fell off, foam crumbled screws went through the interior and scratched my bass..... hated it. when i went to replace it, i knew i wanted something tougher. SKB has a great reputation, and i've got multiple SKB guitar cases, so i put the cash out for it. I do not regret a thing. I have a yamaha TRB bass which i've had issues fitting the slanted headstock into cases, hence why i bought the soft case to start with. This case has plenty of room for the slanted headstock, and has great storage and protection. Just picked up a Jazz bass, and this case will soon be purchased for it.

    The best case for Fender Basses

    By Troy Hays

    from Mt. Dora Florida

    Comments about SKB-44 Deluxe Universal Electric Bass Guitar Case:

    I Bought one of these cases and a fender case that was $25 more! This case is the better case because it has fewer latches to mess with. Thin design that is less bulky and the hard plastic covering seems stronger. SKB has also re-enforced the corners to the case with extra hard plastic to prevent wear and tear. The more expensive fender brand case is wearing away at the corners and has cracked in a couple of places. The coolest difference is the extra compartment in the case for cables, straps and tuners. The SKB holds more gear even though the case is smaller. If you just bought a new fender bass an need a case, save your money and buy this case and you will be glad you did!!

      I purchased this for my TBT bass, some was saying all type of bass mite not fit but this one was just right and it's made well enough to keep bass guitar safe, mite I add the geg bags are ok but your equipment is not protected as for transporting, and the price is well worth it

          Fantastic bass case. And not just "for the price" - it's simply a great case. Solid, tough, and still light weight. My P-bass fits well and carries perfectly balanced. Great latches, hinges, handles. I wouldn't feel uncomfortable hauling a $10K vintage treasure in this case.

              Ordered three different cases this order. This bass case was the best case construction wise of the three. My bass (Rogue LX200B) fit perfectly in the cutout. it looks like the case was built to take a beating. The latches seam pretty secure. Lots of room for accessories but there are no doors over the compartments. Just use some zip-lock bags.
