I bought this for a new bass. My old bass has a wonderful, well used Reunion Blues leather gig bag, but for $100 less I thought I'd give it a try. So far, so good. Very heavy duty bag with lots of protection. Don't expect it to be light weight, it is not. Has a little airplane on the tag, but you probably need to think twice about checking it. Maybe a gate check? It really is that tough looking. Love the boot sole on the bottom. I would recommend this bag if you regularly transport your bass and need real protection but don't like lugging around a big rectangular wooden box.
