Keep Your Favorite Electric Bass Safe!

SKB's 3i-5014-OP hardshell case offers military-strength protection to your precious solidbody electric bass. Following in the footsteps of SKB's wildly successful MIL-Spec waterproof 3i cases, this portable bass vault won't just keep out moisture, it'll keep out a flood! The SKB 3i-5014-OP case is made of ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin and built to last. It shrugs off impact, humidity, and changes in pressure. Built-in wheels and a comfortable, snap-down-rubber over molded-cushion-grip handle also make the SKB 3i-5014-OP easy to transport.

SKB 3i-5014-OP Hardshell Electric Bass Case at a Glance:
  • Reality-proof construction built to withstand the abuses of air travel
  • A perfectly regulated vault for your electric bass
  • Convenient comforts onboard
Reality-proof construction built to withstand the abuses of air travel

If you fly often, then you already know how hard air travel can be in your gear. The SKB 3i-5014-OP is the perfect case for protecting your favorite electric bass from the hazards of air travel. In addition to being waterproof, the SKB 3i-5014-OP hardshell case is virtually "airproof" too. Its injection molded, high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin shell can shrug off scrapes and bumps like no other hardshell case on the market. What's more, even the best built hardshell bass case won't travel well, unless it's TSA approved. Fortunately, the SKB 3i-5014-OP also features TSA-approved locking latches so both your bass and your case will arrive in one piece.

A perfectly regulated vault for your electric bass

The SKB 3i-5014-OP's gasketed, waterproof, and airtight seals allow it to maintain its own independent internal pressure. That means even if you're flying, you don't have to worry about the extreme change in altitude affecting your bass. In fact, the SKB 3i-5014-OP meets the US military's strict regulations for moisture and pressure resistance, even qualifying as waterproof under full immersion. When all of this adds up to is that your electric bass couldn't be safer than it is in a SKB 3i-5014-OP hardshell solidbody bass case.

Convenient comforts onboard

What's great about the SKB 3i-5014-OP is that its practical perks aren't all there is to it. In addition to being a truly elegant electric bass case, it also offers significant onboard features that make traveling with your bass comfortable and easy. Built-in wheels allow you to trail the SKB 3i-5014-OP behind you as you rush from the car to the gig, or the terminal to the gate. The SKB 3i-5014-OP also features extremely comfortable handles, whose cushioned grips feature snap down rubber coverings. Cushioned handles may seem like a small bonus, but when you been lugging around a case for hours, you'll sure be glad you have them!

Indestructible Case!!!!!

THis is the best case I've ever owned. I travel a good amount with "American English Beatles Tribute" and I'm thinking of dumping all my cases and replace with these! I LOVE this case! I use it for my McCartney Fender Jazz bass, and I have no fear. Cheers, Eric Michaels

Nice Case

A very nice flight type bass case. It did not fit my Warrior Isabella (large single-cut body) but works with all my other basses. The neck support is great but comes down too low for a single-cut to sit correctly. Any Jazz or Precision style bass should have no problem. It is quite a bit heavier and deeper than an average case but that's to be expected for the type of protection it offers. It does have wheels and a padded handle to ease in transport. Locks and latches appear sturdy, don't think I'll try out the waterproof part. Well worth the cost if you travel with your instrument.

Nice case but...

This is a sturdy, well constructed case, but "fits most solid body basses" is an overstatement. My Fender American J-Bass did not fit without cutting the neck support because the body cavity area is too small for the body of the bass to fit in. With that adjustment made, the case is ballistic strength and the locks seem like they will take the abuse of air travel. A list saying "will/will not fit the following basses..." would have been helpful. All that said, I liked it enough to make the required modifications rather than send it back.

Not Universal

This is a super strong case for its weight and I would recommend it but with a caveat. The neck support goes too far into the body area and may not fir your bass. I have a Dingwall Super P which is just their version of a P-bass and as such has a pretty standard body shape. I had to cut away parts of the styrofoam and lining in the areas of the nick and strap button to make it fit. Not a deal-breaker but something to consider.
