Overview

This hardshell guitar case from Road Runner is designed to fit most acoustic basses.

The molded case has a non-scratch, thicker pile, plush-lined interior and padded neck brace with 2 accessory compartments-one covered and one open. To give extra protection to your special instrument, the exterior is a hardened, roadworthy shell.
Other features include a tongue-and-groove valance, rubber feet, 3 riveted latches-the middle one has a lock & key mechanism-and an offset handle for easier transportation.

The soft, plush interior protects your acoustic bass from scratches and nicks, plus Road Runner uses a special, eco-friendly, dye-free material, which eliminates the release of polluting bi-products into the environment.

Over the years I have had many, many guitar cases. Some suited their purpose well while others were left wanting. Many of the so called, "special", "plus" or "limited edition" guitars had cases made specifically for the guitar in question. I have had no long term success with these cases. The cases made by the major guitar makers such as Gibson and Fender seemed to be the cases that you can count on. They made these cases that way to protect their precious guitars as they shipped and you could be sure that you could get a lifetime of protection for your investment. However, after the pasting years wore out those original cases they had to replaced. In years passed, replacement cases were pretty "hit or miss" in finding solidly built cases that would last through the years. I have found that "Road Runner" ABS Molded Cases to fit the bill for both "hard knocks" out on the road and great longevity when storing the guitar over the long haul. With the acoustic bass especially I need a case that is both "Roadie" proof and able to keep the weathering effects of the road off my bass. With the price of equipment constantly heading skyward you can trust your guitar or bass the Road Runner ABS Molded Cases.

Nicely built, but does not fit Dean EAB

By Eric Johnson

from Woodinville, WA

Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

This is a nicely built case, and I really wish it fit the Dean EAB, but it does not. The Dean case (which does fit) isn't as nice.

      Awesome for transporting. My Ibanez AEB5E fits in there just fine, even with the tuner on the side of the body. It has an awesome compartment for cables and such. I did however have some trouble figuring out the locking system. All around good product though

      For Fender CB-100CE

      By Steve V

      from Virginia

      Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

      I bought this to fit my Fender CB-100CE. It fits nicely and is a well made case. It's a little heavy when loaded on the neck side compared to an acoustic GUITAR in a hardcase. Oh well.

      Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

      This case homes my Gretsch G5123B perfectly. It's really heavy, compared to the bass guitar. I trust case to protect my bass guitar. If you have a Gretsch G5123B bass guitar then get this case.

        Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

        Bought a case for my Ibanez acoustic bass I snagged as a practice bass. The case is solid and does its job. It ks a little big, but you know it's serving its purpose when so. The only thing I would watch is when you own a acoustic bass with a tuner on top, mine fits kinda snug but with the inner material wearing down it's fitting better.

          Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

          I've owned several other RR hard cases and gig bags for other instruments. I bought an Ibanez AEB5E for jams, acoustic services at church, but mainly for late night, unplugged practice. This case fits that A/E bass like a glove! The sizing is perfect in that it fits snuggly, but not too tight. It does not turn on the on-board tuner, nor twist the tuning pegs. The interior storage box is bigger than the first one of these I had. It is 9" long x 5" wide x 1-3/4" deep when the lid is closed. Ample storage for a shaped case in a market where the choices are so limited for acoustic basses. The hinges seem to be good and the construction is as expected for this price range. I also like that there is a 5th latch which is located on the "back side" of the neck, in addition to the 4 in the normal locations. There are even bump rails on the lower bout that protect that latch which double as an assist in getting the lid open. No internal odor and the "shag" is good for protecting the finish of your bass. As others have said, it is a bit heavy, more so than the bass itself. And it is a bit neck heavy. My only complaint, and this is nit-picking, is that the latches are on the light scale, but should not be a problem if you don't rush the instrument loading and unloading. Now if we can only get Guitar Center / Roadrunner to make a (Boulevard level) gig bag for A/E basses! HINT - HINT!

          Good Everyday Protection

          About Me Experienced

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Road Runner RRMBA17 ABS Molded Acoustic Bass Case:

          I purchased this case as basic protection for a new Breedlove acoustic bass which fits well and is very well cushioned by the plush padded interior. I added additional soft cloth cushioning where the contours of the bouts don't quite match up. My only criticism is of the latches & hardware, which, to be generous, is of "economy" quality. I would not use it as a road case but for utilitarian, everyday protection I'm pleased with the case quality.

              This case was bought for a bass guitar that the manufacturer doesn't offer a hard shell case for. This is the exact case the manufacturer suggested to fit their acoustic bass. And it fits perfectly...

                      My wife bought me an Ibanez acoustic electric four string for Father's Day last year. She wanted it to be in a case to keep it well protected. The salesman at the local Guitar Center told her this case is the only one that would come close to fitting the bass guitar. Although it is a little tight around the body I never have to worry about it moving inside or being jostled once I've closed the lid. Having the locking keys is an extra level of security as well. All around pleased and was blown away by the gift!!!
