Road Case for Washburn bass
« on: November 06, 2003, 01:50:49 PM »
I bought a case for my new Washburn bass today and the guy had two that fit, one was the regular plastic case and the other was a heavy, thick metal road case. These aren't even in the catalog. I bought the road case and the bass is a perfect fit, although I have to tune down the A string so the neck sits on the neck cushion. I bought it for $88 new. It's twice as thick as the regular cases and twicw as heavy. I'm a happy guy! My wife bought it for me!!

The road case I have says Washburn on it. I don't think they make them any more. You can get road cases out of catalogs but they cost several hundred dollars.

I have seen them in catalogs, but I couldn't tell if they were road cases. It was just a hard shell case. Is it the same thing? I pictured road cases being a bit thicker and heavier. I have one on order, but it has been slow in arriving.
