    i come from germany and i'm just visiting a friend in Houston. Can anybody tell me where to find good shops for nice basses there? I'm searching for a Fender jazzbass or maybe a modern jazzbass-like instrument. Nice would be a pre-owned one with four strings.
    Any help would be great. Thanks!
  2. Have your friend drive you up the road a few hours to Austin Texas and go check out Bass Emporium (www.bassemporium.com) it is worth the trip if your going to be in Texas

    Welcome to the U.S.A.

    Maybe Mjolnir or some of the other Houston Area TBer's know of a closer place...

    Not many good bass shops in Houston. Maybe Rockin' Robin for Fender new and vintage. Austin has a better selection.

    Besides Rockin' Robin, there are GCs in Houston, and Edwards Music up on Westheimer. I've lived both in Houston and Austin, and Austin is definitely worth the trip.

    The thing about Rockin' Robin is that it's a hoot to visit, with instruments hung from the ceiling and a vast variety of all kinds of stringed instruments. I try to stop by every time I go to Houston.

    Fuller's is another shop in Houston that often has some decent Fenders.

    Danny D's Guitar Hacenda south of Houston on Hwy 3 (in League City) usually has a decent selection and there is a GC about 4 miles away at I-45 and Nasa Rd. 1 that has a good selection of basses.
