I use the case to transport my Jazz bass to other peoples houses to play a little. It does a great job protecting my bass and is easy to maneuver thanks to the great balance caused by handle placement. My one con, and it's the only reason this is not a 5 star rating, is the lack of a way to keep my cables and tuner from damaging my bass. All the storage areas are wide open with nothing to keep my gear from sliding around. The bass is as secure as it can be, but the accessories are not. With all that said, it beats the heck out of a gig bag, but it could be better.
