This case is, basically, a little thicker version of the old acoustic "cardboard" cases. It has better padding, but I would never trust this case on commercial flights. The clasps are thin and the thumb flip-up/lock-down wings have edges that can cut your fingers if you're not careful. When closed, the clasps do not perfectly align. You need to shift the top around, a bit.

Function not Fashion

By Joslyn LaMantia

from Costa Mesa, CA

Comments about Dean Acoustic Bass Hardshell Case:

It's a case, and it does it's job. It even has a relatively large storage cubby under the neck. It has a lot of clasps (2 on the hinge side even) and a few of them lock. The key is the shape of a guitar, that made me smile. The only negative thing I have to say is that the outside covering was glued on very well, and it's starting to peel already. I've had it for about a month. This doesn't bother me too much because it gets put in the dirt and stuff so I don't need it to look beautiful.

Dean Acoustic Electric bass guitar case

By Richard

Comments about Dean Acoustic Bass Hardshell Case:

This is a very large instrument. The case fits the instrument perfectly. My store had no other case that came close to fitting it. I especially like the six closures that pretty much assure the case won't open accidentally. For a case that large, it is not cumbersome to handle. I am glad to have it. It is worth the money.

The Bass Case

By Camden

from Collinsville, IL

Comments about Dean Acoustic Bass Hardshell Case:

I got this product used from my bass instructor and it is perfect! it has padding on the interior to keep the bass guitar safe from falls and such while inside the case. It looks good and my Dean Playmate acoustic bass fits in snugly, which I'd hope for anyways considering its a dean case. However the outer material looks like wallpaper glued on and the lid doesn't always shut, however, it always comes together right when the latches are closed. The outside isn't bad except I can see a seem where the outer material was put on. The inside does show pet hair since it is black, so keeping it closed from cats is highly recommended. Overall I would say this is a great case to have and isn't too bad in the weight department (I particularly like that fact, me being a bit of a small-fry when it comes to muscles)

    Bought this for a new acoustic Dean bass. Very good fit - bass is very well protected. Not too heavy even given the larger size of this case.

              Comments about Dean Acoustic Bass Hardshell Case:

              So I've had this case for about 3 years. I originally got it to take my bass with me to Germany for the summer, and a gig bag would not suffice. In the span of a few months, it was dropped multiple times, was closed in several bus doors, tossed around the cargo hold of a plane (managed by Delta), and even broke my fall as I slid down a flight of stairs. Through all of this, my bass was unscathed. The case itself has two scratches, but is otherwise fine. This is a top notch case, and can handle a lot. Definitely a must buy for any of the dean acoustic basses.

                            In many cases if you have a Dean AB/EAB you're going to need a Dean case. My EAB-C5 will ONLY fit this case, but fit It Does. You can turn the case upside down and it won't fall out ! The case is very well built with plenty of latches/2 with locks. Inside very nice too. The only 2 negatives is one; they could have added a couple of d-rings and maybe a shoulder strap for longer trecks. Bass + case and a few necessities hidden in the cubby add up. The other is the covering issue at the seam. If they would attach some trim it would take care of the problem. I plan on adding some decorative leather
