    Just saying, it might get more of a response in a different area of TB.

    Bass NW is a great place to buy a bass from!

    I bought a used 55-94 from them one time and a '76 SVT another. I almost ordered a custom Warwick through them recently...

    They're great guys to deal with, and great prices.

    I've always had that impression, but have never actually bought anything. They just seem to have everything together.

    Yea I saw the thread and the forum it was in and thought that maybe they were selling the store. But then a funnier title would be "Satisfy all your G.A.S with ONE Purchase!!!!"

  8. I buy pretty much all my equipment secondhand, so I've only found something I wanted and could afford at BNW once. But that was about as satisfying as retail shopping gets...really great guys.

    if you walk away from BassNW unhappy, then you have the problem. those guys know their gear, know music, know their prices, and don't look to get over on anyone.

    I have also done business with them and they are true pros. They are one of the few retailers who actually update their website every week.

    Nope. Moved.

    BTW, I bought both of my Bag Ends and my WT-550 from Evan (3 separate transactions) - BNW is a great store!

    I'll pay attention to where I am posting next time. Thanks for all the replies. I think I am going to go through with the purchase. The guys I spoke to at Bass NW were very professional over the phone. Thanks again for helping settle my nerves and doubts.

    I've bought three used basses from them, all were BETTER than advertised. Great service overall, highly recommended.

    I bought a bass from Evan and it arrived very quickly. The only downside was that it got delivered on my wife's birthday and she got real excited when the Fedex guy showed up, but quickly got pissed off when she recognized the shape of the box.

    Evan has been just great. Thumbs up for BNW!

    I also bought a used bass from them last month, and it was better than I expected. I got a really nice used Zon and dealt with Evan, great people there and they worked with me to ship out here to Guam with no problems whatsoever. My first choice for any major gear purchases in the future.

    I bought my Berg 112's and Eden WT-550 from Bass NW (Evan) and was totally satisfied with both service, recommendations, and the product. Total pros for sure.

    I don't think you need have any nerves or doubts where you are dealing with a real music store - i.e. one that has definite premises, as opposed to a "virtual" store.

    It's not like you're buying from eBay, where there are so many types of possible fraud - this is just a store like any other and in the same way that I'm not getting nervous before going to the local supermarket - I can't imagine having doubts about buying from somewhere like Bass NW or Central etc etc.
