    I am trying to find a place to shop around for my first DB. I could always get an engelhart drop shipped to me, but would like to put my hands on some and see if I could not find something used in my area. The problem is that the town I live in has no DB's--anywhere. Atlanta is close, and worth a few day trips to try stuff out at. Does anyone know of any shops in Atlanta that stock DB's? Preferably a few and in the beginning price range. Also, feedback on any of those shops would be appreciated.

    My luthier is Tom Thoreson of Southeastern Strings...he's in Atlanta. Email or PM me and I'll give you his contact info. He's also listed on (All Hail!) Bob Gollihur's Luthier Directory. Last time I was there, he had several entry-level basses for sale. There are a couple of other luthiers listed in GA also.

    Failing anything else, there are a couple of stores with Englehardts here in Columbus GA.
