  • SKB hardshell cases for Jackson concert basses

    I had my Jackson bass hardshell gigbag delivered yesterday.
    My JS3 won't sit still in the neck rest and my JS3VQ barely has a few mm clearance from the edge of the interior of the case.
    WTF can't Jackson make proper SKB cases like they do for guitars, whereby the interior mould is shaped to hold the body and there's enough space in front of the headstock tip? Us bass players are getting a shit deal here. I don't mind paying £100 for a proper case, not £70 for something that's designed so badly, the instrument won't sit still, and is at risk of getting damaged. What about one of those David Ellefson cases without the logo's? Not much to ask, y'know.

    it still moves when you zip up the case? that sucks, sorry to hear that. it is kind of surprising there isn't an hardshell skb case for the basses they sell.

      I think I'll tear up some of those foam cutouts from the shipping box, cut it to shape around the body of the bass, I need a Stanley knife or something....

        my JS3V fits in one of those cheap musician friends cases and it holds the neck above the floor fine, but it does have room in there so adding some side bolsters would keep it tight for sure.

        to use it for gig purposes, any type of anything in there would work to hold it tight. go here to look.

          Maybe its my poor eyesight, but that looks like the headstock is stabbing the interior of the case. I did buy a TourTech case with enough space in front of the headstock. But it was ridiculously heavy, had no storage compartments, and the latches were shit. So, I got a refund.

            Finding a case with proper headstock clearance seems to be a pain in the ass for J/C bass players.

            Tried several cases from Thomann but no luck so far

              For my Charvel Model basses and Jackson Concert V a chromacast fit including the long headstock but those things are cheap and there is a lot of extra room to need to pad up. I went ‘screw it’ and got a padded gig bag…

                I don't trust gignags, no matter how padded they are. Someone once suggested a Mono gigbag. The top quality ones go for £200 a piece over here. I just want Jackson to make proper hardshell cases for basses with moulded interiors, specifically the Concert bass, and especially the 5 string versions (until Jackson finally get the hint and start making production Kelly, Warrior and V shape basses).

                  Since Brexit and UK Customs cantankerous "we tax anything and everything for the sake of it" attitude, I have steered clear of Thomann. A shame really, since they otherwise offer good deals.

                    Oh I get the insistence on a hardcase. I’m just glad I have one of the old black 90s molded ones in good shape. It fits my four string but the five is a little tight. It can be modified for the extra need room though. Not sure it it fix’s more modern Jackson basses, as my two at the moment are Professional series.
