    I have a new student who will be joining my studio next year who lives in this area who is looking for her first double bass. I have recommended a Shen SB100 or something in that range of basses. Does anyone know of reputable shops or luthiers in the general area? I have checked Gollihur's page but haven't found a place I can tell enough about to recommend to her. Thanks!

    I'd suggest Mccourts in Waterford. They seem quite knowledgeable

    Unfortunately there's not really a great bass luthier/shop anywhere immediately around the Detroit metropolitan area- when I was shopping for my first bass I had a really difficult time finding an instrument. The closest quality option is Aaron Reily in the Grand Rapids area- a bit of a drive (2.5ish hours), but definitely worth the trip- he usually carries a bunch of well set up stuff in the range you're looking at.
