This hardshell case is made of ABS plastic and built very well. Inside case, the interior is made of EPS foam making it more stable for transportation. It glued to case shell solid and there are no problems with quality. The EPS foam is covered with plush lining so interior is soft and suits all types of bass finishes and protects instrument from being scratched. Neck cavity is designed to keep instrument tight, snug and immobile. Cavity for body and headstock has a lot of space so there are no worries to put inside non-classy bass. In my case with custom designed instrument with quite large headsotck (like imagine to have Caparison or other ?devil horn? headstock bass with four tuners in a row) I worried that it will not fit, but did. Space is enough to put there also pack of string or strap next to headstock. It also has recess for basses with angled headstocks. Body cavity is also good for any types of bass bodies - either it has asymmetry like Jazz bass, or singlecut. Another great option is two pockets for pedals. Mainly it has height to fit Boss-like pedals. 3-5 pedals could fit in one of these pockets. It is good option to keep not only pedals but also some maintaining tools for your bass inside the case without worries that they will ?hang around? inside while transporting. Latches are lockable and keeps your instrument secure. Aluminum reinforcement parts of case increase overall stability. Comfortable handle is solid and withstand weight of full case packed with bass and pedals - you won?t drop your bass on ground.
I have bought this case to use it for my Marcus Miller Sire V7 bass. Having used in the past cases and gig-bags from Gator, it was a "default" when it came to selecting a case for the bass. The case seems sturdy enough, like it could take a bit of a beating and still come out intact. The latches are pretty sturdy and close fairly easy. The problem I have with the case is the inside space for the bass. It is a pretty tight fit width wise, although it is a standard jazz bass in dimensions. The big problem is with the height of case's interior. The V7 from Sire has a couple of stacked knobs, which are probably a bit higher than the usual knobs found on a bass guitar. Therefore, when closing the lid, it presses against the knobs to the point where you have to force the lid a tad to close it. Not the most safe feeling when you want to know the instrument is well protected. Unfortunately, most guitar / bass producers will not tell the overall height of the instrument (knobs included), so there is really no way of knowing if it will fit until you try it. And to be frank,most of the time it is the width and length of the instrument that are verified when purchasing a case that is "one size fits all" type. Pros: - sturdy construction - not too heavy - nice inside lining Cons: - not enough room height wise - handle could be a bit beefier and with a softer grip.
