    Hi Guys as i post some time back im planning to buy online some good bass because i will be traveling to US next month and i will ship it to my aunt house.

    i get to BassCentral website and im wondering (because i got no idea at all) if this is a trust site???

    Thanks a lot for your references.
  2. Bass Central? The best in the biz.
  3. Yes, Bass Central is legit. If you were to visit, you would have a good chance of meeting Beaver Felton.

    Anytime I sent an email to Bass Central, I received almost immediate replies.

    The website itself is not updated too frequently. And they will leave old inventory posted, so you have an idea of the price if/when a new instrument arrives. If something on the website interests you, always contact them to make sure that model is in stock.

    yes. the site is a bit "15 years ago" looking but I know they are in the process of overhauling. I've been to their brick and mortar store several times and they're definitely legitimate.

    Yup. The neon/black is dated (and a bit jarring) but they are absolutely legit, one of the best in the biz.

    They are real stand up guys. Dealt with them many times and are very professional and knowledge. When I plan on buying a bass I go to basscentral first (Thumbs up).
    You think I can get a bass central endorsement deal ;)

    But seriously a great site and they are really good guys and have more stock than any other deal I know. You can't go wrong at all with them. Top notch

    As already stated, simply the best. I'd love to visit the brick and mortar store sometime.... As for the website, seems their recent attempt at an overhaul was a disaster. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, I say. My one request for the site would be weights listed for all basses (not just some).

    Apparently, having a high end online bass store requires a website straight out of 1995!

    I've dealt with both Bass Central and Bass Northwest (I work in walking distance from their shop). Both very reputable. While is a little dated, the inventory is almost always up to date. I've bought and sold many a bass with them and it has always been a positive experience.

    I live in Orlando and have been over to the shop to buy a few accessories. All the guys are legit and know what they are talking about. If I'm in the market for a new bass that is where I would go.

    What bass are you looking at?
