    Would you like to see Wilkins basses in your favorite bass store? So many of you say they would like to try a Wilkins bass but it's not
    available to try in your area. Let me know the name of your favorite bass store and I'll contact them personally and invite them to come to my booth and try them out. If I can make it happen you might see a Wilkins or two in your store in the future.

    Check with Bass Specialties. I have not made a trip there, but it is the closest bass shop to me and they seem to have a good selection. I'd love to check out a Wilkins Bass, they look great!

    If you're looking to Canada for potential business, you could contact Long & McQuade. It's our largest retail chain.

    Hi Pat,
    You probably already know this since it's your own backyard, but southern California Sam Ash and Guitar Centers (since they each have a store very close to me).
    However, my favorite and the one that makes the most sense is Bass San Diego!

    HTH...

    Yes, absolutely. I do custom builds by order also. The RoadTested bass is the standard model. There are a lot of options available including a gloss finish for the player that can't get behind the matte finish.

    Wichita Guitar Works in Wichita, Kansas. They're a new shop in the process of establishing their product lines, and based on the stuff they have in the shop right now, Wilkins could be a good fit.
