Gig bag to fit an 'English' style bass?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks

Anyone got a lead on a gig bag to fit my pal's bass? 

Its 3/4 size but unusually deep front to back and has wide, high shoulders on the upper bout.

My Westbury case has plenty of room for my bass which is large for a 3/4 but won't go anywhere near this one.

Any ideas? 

Thanks!

Thomann lists the internal dimensions of all their cases on the website, so that’s worth a browse. Your friend might end up with a 4/4 sized case. 

There are custom case makers in the US if fit is important, but obviously ££. Nice bass.

Thanks @Duckyincarnate, I'll check that out!

Pretty much a stock answer to this type of question:

"Talk to David at Bassbags"   

They used to (and I assume still can) get custom sized cases made to measure but also have lots of stock (I guess the clue is in the name of the company!).  My own bass is the opposite to this one, being long in scale and body, but not very deep.  I assumed I'd need a custom case so took it to BassBags, where David looked it up and down and pulled out a stock Westbury case that fitted like it was made for the bass.
