    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

any stores with decent selection in MA?

    Looking to add to my family and I really do not want to buy without playing and I'm having trouble finding places that have a non pathetic bass department.

    guitar center is a joke (the bass dept before they moved to landsdown st was great, but since the move it has been rather sad when I've gone. Nashua's is even worse).

    Tewksbury music has a few ric's but those aren't my thing

    the place in harvard sq doesn't seem to have much (although they do have some vintage fenders).

    in a nutshell, I want bass central to relocate to an area convenient to me.

    Found a place with a lot of stuff in NJ (http://www.newjerseyguitarandbasscenter.com/Basses.htm), which if I find myself in that neck of the woods i'll check out. but I'm not driving 5 hours :)

    anybody know of any other places to check out? (the GTG's were also good for this)

    I'm on the Cape and I agree. Sadly, the best place "locally" for high end basses is gone (G Guitars, New Haven, CT). Check out Matt's Music in Weymouth, he is a guitar player but knowledgeable. I bought my first Modulus there...
    For internet, check out Greg at Rocket Music (Rocketmusic.com), they are based in Blacksburgh, VA. PM me for other thoughts, etc.. if you wish.
