    Bass case

    I've owned several Gator products over the years. Great value, real nice interior, plenty of gear storage wells. This fit my custom neck-through 5-string really well.

    Wonderful case

    For the price, this is a wonderful case! Although I have had it only a couple weeks, I don't foresee any issues. The latches work well, it is pretty strong, and fits my Fender Rascal perfectly. My thanks to Anthony Longano for suggesting a reasonable alternative to the Fender case. Shipping was quick, and item was well packaged.

    Nice Case for Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass

    I was having trouble locating a case for my Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass I was purchasing. Mike Soper at Sweetwater directed me to the Case Finder app on their website. Very cool... I plugged in my guitar and, POOF, there are my choices. I'm pleased with the case. I'd call it a near perfect fit, but most importantly my bass doesn't swim around in there. Nice construction while still lightweight - recommended.

    Perfect Fit & Top Quality

    Recommended by Sweetwater for my Yamaha TRBX505TBN purchase. Perfect fit, high quality and durable. Bass does not move around and has decent amount of room for stuff.

    case for my Fender Rascal

    I just purchased a Fender Pawn Shop Rascal bass and wanted a hard case to protect it better than the gig bag it came with. I sent an e-mail to Sean Geyer at Sweetwater, asking if he could recommend a case. Sean suggested the Gator Deluxe ABS Molded Case. The case fits the Rascal like it was made for it. The bass doesn't shift at all in the case, and there is plenty of storage space inside. The case is very substantial and well built. Thanks again to Sean and Sweetwater for there great customer service ....as usual! Sweetwater customer for life.

    This is my second Gator case.

    This one fits my big Dean Rhapsody 12 string bass with ease, and again, with plenty of spare space for my multiple accessories.

    Gator has it together across a wide range of guitar cases, it seems.

    Perfect Fit for Oddball Fender Basses

    I searched high and low for a case for my Fender Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar bass; this one fits like a hand in a glove. It also fits my new Fender Classic Player Rascal bass perfectly. A special shout-out to Kenny for introducing me to this excellent and well-made case.

    Excellent hardshell case

    This is an excellent bass case. Top of the line quality and fits my bass perfectly. Looks great and feels rugged, well-built. Nice & soft on the inside. It has two large pockets to hold your strap, tuner, picks, etc. Comes with keys to lock it up. Highly recommended.

  • from September 30, 2015

    Not your average case

    This hard case meets my standards very well.
    While most plastic cases get soft in heat,this one does not.
    Great storage area for strap,tuner,strings.
    Also a large amount of space in top of case for those sometimes really big tuning keys and head.

    Gator Bass Case has Space

    After wearing out two bass cases for my Fender Jazz Bass I started looking around and found the best deal at Sweetwater. They delivered and I'm happy! Customer service rep Cody was awesome to deal with and helped out with P.A. mains.

    only case that fit my squire jaguar 5 string bass

    good case. guitar fit real good until i put on the straplocks. it is a little tight now but still fits when i take the strap off. i find it odd fender makes a case an no accompanying case but that is not the case's fault.

    Good buy

    I love this case. It's lighter than the plywood cases, but still has a lot of protection for my bass. I purchased an Ibanez 1205E, and crazy enough, it didn't fit into the Ibanez brand case for it.

    With the help of one of the guys over at Sweetwater, they helped me find this case. For a little extra money (the other case was $20 cheaper) I got this one and glad I got it instead.

    My only complaint, which is minor by the way, is that the compartments are open (don't have lids to close). It would have been a nice feature, but again not a major deal to me.

  • from September 7, 2015

    strong and great quality

    As always Gator delivers...

  • from August 28, 2015

    There is---

    There is eight guitar cases in my music room and whatever the Gator case is made of, it not only is great protection for your guitar, I can't find a mark on it where it rubs the back of the front seat in the car ! Hmmm how do they do that?

    Satisfying and Sturdy Case

    I purchased this case awhile back as per recommendation by my Sales Engineer. Boy is this a great pick! The outer shell makes for a sturdy and solid protective case for my GSR200. The inside had a very nice and firm foam the conformed to my bad with ease. Overall, I was kinda shocked as to how great it was for the price!

    Gator Bass guitar case

    This is a pretty good case. Its rugged and light weight and best of all fairly cheap.

    Gets the job done

    It's what I expected. I good, solid case.
    Nothing super flashy but sturdy. However, I was impressed as there is a generous amount of space on the sides to store your cables, pedals or what have you.
    I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable, no nonsense case.

    iffy interior

    If you know how to treat your instrument, you ought to know that it should fit in your case snugly. My bass, Ibanez SR256, fits snugly so it doesn't move side to side. However, it does move forward and backward. This ended up breaking the divider between the little "compartment" and the body compartment. Now the bass has a lot more room to move back and forth.

    The accessory compartments themselves are good, but they don't have a lid to keep them shut. I did lose my hex wrench in the crevasses/corners/edges; the material is rather fluffy, in an artificial way.

    Overall, it's a good case; my bass hasn't broken at all. But it moves around, which shouldn't happen.

    Gator GC-Bass

    Love this case. I got one for my SR256, and it fits nicely. The only objection I have is that there is no closed compartments for example a strap, allen wrenches, or cables.

    nice case , large and well made : only fits Fender style instruments , NOT Gibson EB-2 or other hollow bodies.

    Bass case

    Good quality and price. Delivery seemed a bit long.

    Good case for price, but not a snug fit for Yamaha Yamaha TRBX505 5-String

    Chose this because I saw a review saying it was a perfect fit and recommended by Sweetwater for the Yamaha TRBX505 5-String, but my TRBX505 5-String has at least an extra inch (probably a little more) between the end pin and the end of the case (or the horn pin and the mid section of the case), plus nearly an inch on the side of the body, so the bass does slide forward and backward when I carry the case. Better too big than too small, but looks like I'll be rolling up a towel so that my bass stays put while in transit.

    The case probably deserves 3.5 or 4 stars for quality. Maybe it's not fair to give it only 3.0 just because I wished it fit my bass more snugly. I will say, decent amount of storage space and not a bad case overall.

    ok bass case

    the material on the outside of this case is very strong. the latches are also built very well. the only complaints i have is about the internal padding and construction. first of all both sides of the plush and foam fall out.(i fixed this with some epoxy, wich is like glue.) the plush also gets warn down and flattened to wear it wont go back to the way it was. this makes the bass wiggle around and move in the case after awhile. other then that though if you travel and bump this case around your gonna protect it no questions asked.

    Gator GC-Bass large for EB-0

    Nice case but it's size is a bit large for an EB-0. The bass does fits as advised but is swims in it, the only part snugly fit is the neck which is supported nicely. I've added a strip of foam rubber around the body as the guitar was free to move back and forth about three or four inches. This case is designed to fit long scale basses and an EB-0 is a short scale. It's a sufficient replacement for the original 68 cardboard case it replaces that is totally falling apart, but if I were still using this bass on the road touring, I'd seek out a more snug fitting case.
