    Is Bass Northwest a good place to visit?

    I can't buy anything (except possibly a souvenir), but their bass selection seems to be very extensive. Is it worth a look?

    Thanks!

    I arrive in Seattle on the 29th of September at 10:30 PM. I pick up my car from Matson at Terminal 25 the following morning. My nephew and I will be in town for a few hours before driving to Grants Pass, OR.
     
  5. Absolutely you should go hit BNW!

    When you do, tell Chad that I said hey!!! :)

    I've had to ban myself from BNW...

    ...I always walk out of there more broke than when I went in!!

    Definitely go!

    I was there at Christmas a couple of years ago and loved it, great place.

    Got the T-shirt and bumperstickers! :D

    I would recommend it, if you're a bass player in the neighborhood. It's like a magical wonderland. I live on the other side of the state now, but when I lived in Seattle, I was there every time I was near Pioneer Square.

    Thanks for your responses! Bass Northwest is the first major stop of our trip (after I pick up my car) :D

    T-shirts sound like a great souvenir to me! ;)

    It seems like a nice place, but I never get treated all that great when I go in. They just blow me off and continue doing other things while I look around. Maybe I'll stuff my wallet with a $100 bill wrapped around a bunch of $1's and drop it on the floor in front of one of their salesguys?

    I would suggest you take highway 520 across the water to Bellevue and go say hello to Mike Lull. I spent $50 on a setup, but he treated me like I was spending $50,000 in his store.

    Mike's shop won't have as much eye candy as BassNW, but if you can talk yourself into a tour of the back room it'll be worth every extra penny you spend for gas to get there!

    You might be able to pick up a bass with a neck that has a "very sleek feel", if you're lucky. :D

    Bass NW is a cool store but... I gotta say "+1" to everything you stated. I always get that same indifferent treatment... but I'm such a gear whore I never let it stop me!! :rolleyes:

    Yes, I have visited all 3x I visited Seattle. Great store, great staff. If nothing else, you can pick up a cool Bass NW t-shirt.

    yep, definitely worth the visit and you should have time to get over to Mike Lull's as well. Reeeeeally worth the time and trek just to pop in and say hi to Mike, great guy, great stories, great basses.
