Jazzmaster gig bag

Recommended Posts

Having finished my Jazzmaster bitsa (as seen in the build diaries section), I'm struggling to find the right gig bag. At 104cm long, it's just a little too long for the gig bag I had with my last guitar, and most typical strat/tele bags. I've been putting it in a bass bag, but it really needs its own bag. I know there are a few folk on here who've had Jazzmasters, so I'd be interested to know what you used. I need shoulder straps, just enough pockets for spare strings and tremolo arm, and it would be nice if it wasn't too high-tech/sporty/gimmicky looking like some bags are. Most retailers websites are terrible at showing the dimensions of cases, so finding the right one online is proving difficult...

Sorry, I went straight from standard Fender gig bag (which the JM was too long for and the top of the headstock stuck out of as you're probably discovering) to a Gator hardcase. I can recommend the Gator if you decide to upgrade to a proper case.

I've found one long enough here; [url="http://www.spider-engineering.co.uk/music/typeproducts2.asp?id=4843-5796"]http://www.spider-engineering.co.uk/music/typeproducts2.asp?id=4843-5796[/url] but it's a bit cheap looking and I'm not sure how well padded it will be for 15 quid. I don't like that design where the zip goes all the way round the bottom either.
I notice that Fender do a short-scale bass gig bag, and I have a hunch that might be a good size. I'll send off a couple of emails and see if I can find out.

It turns out the Fender short-scale bass bag may be a touch too narrow for a Jazzmaster, though it is long enough. However, I found a nice Kases leatherette bag here on the basschat classifieds which is well padded, classy looking and a good fit, so I have solved my gig bag issue. Hurrah!
