Which hardshell works with Les Paul Jr. Tribute DC Bass?

Recommended Posts

I have a Blue Stain bass coming tomorrow. On another site a poster wrote that it was 41” long and that some aftermarket LP case did fit it. The only case I found that looks like a possible fit is a Gator GW-LP-Brown case 716408504001. I found conflicting info on different venders sites, so I went right to the Gator site & it lists the interior length as 41.9”. I think it sells for $119. What do you guys get for a total length on this bass?

I took the bass to Guitar Center to try to find a case. They did have a Gator Flight Case for a Les Paul, the bass fit perfectly with just a little wiggle room. I ordered the case I mentioned above, it should fit the same. If it doesn’t, they said I could return it on the spot. I’ll let you know how it works. Should be her in 3 to 5 days.

The bass fit great! It could use a little more padding under the end of the body, but that can be easily remedied. It fit better than I hoped with more extra room than I thought it would have. I feel fortunate to find something this close to fitting.

Guitar Center sold that one for $189. There were several versions on line. I think one was $169. I don’t really know what the difference was.....

The first thing I did to mine was remove the cloth cover.

Thanks, I think I'll take a ride over to Guitar Center tomorrow since I have the day off to have a look!

I did try putting it in my Les Paul Gibson case, but it was a little too long to fit.

The Special at my local GC was about the same color, it sold right away. For the closeout price, you can’t beat it! Great guitar!

I decided to go with the same one you got for the Bass and just placed it on order.

I wound up getting a brown Gibson case for the Guitar.

I’m going to get a 2nd one of these for the guitar, after I get my Reward points from MF from buying the bass. Should knock another $50 off or so. Just have to wait 45 days. I hate the gig bags!

The Gator GC-ELEC-XL Deluxe ABS Molded Case for Extra Long Baritone Guitar works, too. I had to compress the styrofoam on the inside of the lid in the area  over the face of the bass a little (using my heel) so it would not be such a tight fit but the mod worked and case fits like a glove now. Lid shuts all the way with ease now. It shut fine before but was a little bug for my taste so I compressed the styrofoam with my heel about 1/2cm.

Length of interior is perfect even with my extra long Dunlop locking strap button. There is about 1" from intierior to edge of headstock. Bass  doesn't;t slide around inside and the neck channel fits perfect.

Has lotsa storage room and very light even with the bass inside. Balkances well while carrying.
