Gig Bags for Jazzmasters

Post by Ian » Wed Feb 21, 2007 10:34 am

I need to get a decent gig bag for my Jazzmaster, but it can be a pain in the ass to fit a Jazzmaster into a standard one. I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for me.

i have two "rockbags" by warwick, and they work pretty well. you have to stretch it a bit to get it over the headstock, but it´s not too tight of a fit.

I have a TKL bag that came with my SG. I have no idea if a Jazzmaster will fit in one but I'll give it a try when I get home. I'd guess it won't.

Great thread. I'm looking at hard-cases for my Jazzmaster at the moment. The vintage ones are way too expensive on ebay. I've found a place in Europe that does 3 different new ones...

I'd also like to get a gigbag for it, nice & padded, but I can't see any. I'll keep watching this thread. Hopefully something'll come up.

To take a slightly more pro-active stance here...
Has anyone tried to fit their JM into one of the "World Tour" gigbags? I know SKB makes some, but I haven't ever heard if they fit a JM/Jag.

I can't think of anyone else beyond Gator or Rockcase.

Coffin case!  They sold me one of those when i bought my JM it's like a hardbag wierd kind of thing.  It was the only one i n the shop that would hold a JM.
I prefer their older stuff.

Wait, is that the case I've seen that looks like a vampire coffin? I think I know what you're talking about.
I'll have to check it out.

It fits perfectly. No stretching or wrestling with it.

I use a Levy's CM-8 gigbag for both my JM and Jag. It's actually a bass gigbag but it's just the right length for my JM. It looks very similar to the TKL bag from luau only a bit longer. You could also try the CM-7 which is meant for guitar although I'm not sure if it'll fit a Jazzmaster.

I have a hard case in backorder from Hiscox (model STD-EJAG). I like the Hiscox cases because they're light and offer good protection but I haven't seen it yet so I can't comment on how it'll fit yet.
