Test drive a Corvette $$ 5 in Los Angeles?

    My son has been playing bass for about 2 years and now he wants to move up to a 5 string bass. I have narrowed it down to the Corvette $$ 5 or the Lakland 55-01. My problem is I can't find either one for him to treat drive. I'm in Los Angeles. Any suggestions?

    There should be some lakland dealers in the area....

    Have you tried GC? sometimes they get new and used ones in.

    The 5501 has one of the best necks out there for a fiver....the necks are partially what sold me on laklands.

    I really believe the 5501 is an excellent choice at their price point.

    You may consider ordering one....if he does not like it it should be a pretty easy sell.

    Another option is that there ate several reasonably priced used ones here on TB.

    good luck
