: Hi, I was wandering if any one could tell me the different measurements, in inches, for a 1/2 size, a 5/8 size and a 3/4 size?

: I believe I have a 5/8 bass but not exactly sure and I need to order a gig bag.
: This info would be very helpful.

A catalog I have lists one 5/8 cover with measures as follows:

upper bout 20, lower bout 25, total length 71, rib depth 7.5 to 9", total depth 19, body length 42-44"

Hope that helps you in your search.

BTW, I have very nice 3/4 bags available, but don't sell 5/8 bags myself - not much call for them.
