    What Gig Bag Best Fits a Stingray?

    What do you use and why?

    I'm a big fan of the Gator gig bags. I have their dual gig bag that carries two basses and it's great. It's lightweight, yet offers plenty of protection. The inside is like a microfiber material, really soft. It has pockets for cables, batteries, whatever. And it has backpack straps for easy carrying. The one linked below is the single version of what I have.

    Has anybody used the Rockbag from Warwick? It's a bit exy, I wonder if it's worth it?

    A Rockbag will fall into pieces in a year or two. Nice features, but very low quality of manufacture.
    I am yet to find a bass gig bag that will not fit a SR.
    So you have a wide variety of options. Try a Gator (as advised earlier) or a Road Runner. My personal favorites are Mono and ProTec; however, they are a bit more expensive.

    Re the Rockbags:

    I don't think so- The Rockbag I've used for years with many miles has yet to fall apart. "Quality of Maniuacture"? It's made in China, like about 99.9% of gigbags including high-end bags like Mono & I-Gig, mebbe at the same factory; so... MY .02 YMMV, etc.
    A 'Ray has a pretty standard body shape, so pretty much any bag you want to use at any price you wish to pay will fit.
    My preference is Reunion Blues; there are lots of others

    I had 4 of them. The "deluxe" type. Always the same story. Maybe it's just my luck. Though "caveat emptor"

    In my case... I've had GOOD luck!
    Plus- I wasn't a buyer (of the gig bag by itself-It came with my Thumb Bass) so no caveat emptor for me, as the Thumb bass is superb, and zero issues with traveling with it in the gigbag provided.
    I have LOTS of gigbags, the Deluxe Rockbag seems to be made as well as needed. 4 of yours blowing up??!
    Wow. That IS bad luck, I guess.

    I have the Mono dual bass bag, and it's great. All my EBMM basses fit no problem, including the Stingray and Bongo. Very well built, I've had mine for close to ten years and it still looks new.

    I have a few of those. Not my faves. Kinda clunky and a
    bit heavy. Not sure how I even wound up with them.

    MM basses fit most any bag due to their slightly shorter
    headstock. Levy bags are widely available, high quality
    but reasonable prices.

    One thing to consider when choosing a bag is where the
    straps attach. It affect whether the bag rides high or low
    on your back. Riding low boinks you in your butt at every
    step. Riding high boinks into door jambs, ceiling fans and
    lighting fixtures, tree limbs, etc. In my experience there
    are no 'middle-riding' bags. Choices are high or low. Pick
    your poison.

    Another Mono M80 user here. It's sturdy and I like the fact that there's no bass brand name on the outside. At home each of my basses goes into a hard case, but the M80 goes with me to gigs.
