Though you may purchase your Gage Case online, shipping costs are not included; we will bill you for them separately. To avoid this, we strongly recommend ordering by email to info@davidgage.com. All Gage Cases are manufactured to order, so please allow 8 weeks for order processing and delivery. Please indicate the size and, if applicable, the date by which you'll need it.

The Featherweight Gage Case for Removable-Neck Bass offers the greatest protection and functionality available for those who have converted their bass or own a bass designed to have its neck removed for shipping. The road-tested, Kevlar-constructed case is light enough to sneak under airline maximum weight requirements while being strong enough to endure the traumas of travel. Simple, safe butterfly latches and a simple packing system make it easy for TSA and customs inspectors to repack the instrument safely. For mobility, the Gage Case features strong, metal-hubbed wheels in inset wells that minimize damage and increase the wheelbase.

The neck packs separately in its own “neck case.” This allows the pieces to be separated to further reduce check-in weight. The body and neck cases can be custom outfitted to one specific instrument, or generically outfitted to be used with different sized instruments. We custom cut the foam in the neck case to accommodate the neck and your choice of accessories, i.e. the bridge, tailpiece, strings, endpin, tools for assembly, etc., keeping them away from the more vulnerable body.

  • Made of durable Kevlar and fiberglass.
  • By refining the construction process, we created the Featherweight to reduce unnecessary weight without compromising its renowned durability.
  • The Featherweight uses the same components that have made the Gage Case the most reliable travel trunk on the market. Among these are the butterfly "key-less" latches. Airport security agents can easily open and close the trunk and no longer have the excuse that they didn't understand the latching system well enough to inspect the contents securely. This improves the baggage check-in process and reduces damage to the trunk's contents.
  • White exterior to reflect ultraviolet rays, keeping instrument cool.
  • Neoprene gasket nestled along the entire edge retaining trough, creating a complete moisture seal when compressed upon closure by the opposite lid part.
  • All latches and handles recessed to guard against damage.
  • Spring loaded, rubber grip, strategically placed handles that recoil below the surface of the trunk.
  • Interior fitted with unique air bag and suspension system. Each bag has two connected chambers that conform to the instrument's shape.
  • Tough rubber sling that cradles the scroll and absorbs vibration and impact.
  • Humidifier in all trunks; necessary when traveling in high altitudes and through different climates.
  • Cases designed to have padded cover over instrument while in the case, affording extra humidity and temperature protection.
  • Inset nylon wheels, light and strong.
  • Extremely wide wheel base at bottom of back, no tipping while going over cobblestones, rounding corners, or rushing through airports.
