Hi People of Basschat
This may all become irrelevant.....depending on whether I get it or not....But.....
I am looking at getting an Epiphone Flying V bass, and was wondering if any of you knew of where to look for for a case for it, it doesn't need to be a hard case, just a bit of protection.....!
Also what sort of stand is best for it.......obviously a small 'A' frame wouldn't hold it.......would a 'cradle and neck support' type work....or would I have to one of those extended Hercules type 'headstock hold and dangle' types?

I had the same trouble with my ironbird.
In the end I found and old grab stand which closes around the body of the bass.
For cases - dean produce a large bass gig bag which is large enough to fit my razorback and ml basses comfortably

"lets just say your dream tone is a perfect burp (stay with me) but you can't aford a nice mouth to make a burp and all your working with is a bum. at the end of the day, you can tweak, turn, spin, add, subtract, shine and kiss your bum but no matter how hard you try the end result will still be a fart." - pinched from TB!

I use and recommend the Hercules stands you describe but I suppose any neck held stand would work to a fashion. Reverb and EBay have a couple of those bags but watch out, they are shipping from the US. I'm sure one would crop up online if you look around or even ask on here under the items wanted section.

Another side note......this would be my first bass that isn't full scale.....so was wondering.....would I need special midget strings.....or would my usual Super Slinkys work.....?
(sorry if that is a silly question.....!)
