Building a case, for my bass


Recommended Posts

I can't find a case for my newly acquired bass so I'm going to make one. The bass is a Hagstrom Viking, semi acoustic, so a large but slim body ( the bass, not me ) .

I'm gonna use MDF for the top and bottom, and softwood for the edges, routed to take the MDF.

Question is, where should I support the bass ? The back of the body will rest on its back, and I was thinking of putting one support under the, say, first fret.

Does ths seam reasonable ?

MDF is going to be dead heavy. Plywood would give you the same strength for way less weight.

This. If you're going to carry an MDF/timber case around, you might just as well get a decent flight case for it.

Or you could get this one from Gear4Music: [url="http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Hagstrom-B62-Viking-Hagcase-Bass-Guitar-Case/GWS"]http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Hagstrom-B62-Viking-Hagcase-Bass-Guitar-Case/GWS[/url]
