    I`m looking for an used bass in Los Angeles California to buy, 5 strings.

  2. There are plenty out there, good luck.

    Start with Craig's List online, The Recycler newspaper, and call the Bass Exchange on Ventura Blvd.

    Pasadena, CA is a good place to start if it's something you feel you need to pick up in person. I've purchased almost all of my instruments through eBay, and have had no problems with any of them. Shop wisely.

    Here are a few from today's L.A. craigslist. (I don't know ANYTHING about these, I'm just passing along the ads I found.)

    You might also want to check the CL listings for Orange County, Ventura County, Inland Empire and other locations near L.A.

    I've also had very good luck with

    Holy ****ing **** that MTD is SO awesome. And it's in my city!

    Damn, sweet bass. If I were OP I'd buy a SR506 at GC for 600 bucks and trade for that bass, STAT.

    Or the deal above me is pretty sweet too. I sold one of those basses (different finish) for 500 bucks without case.
  8. LA is arguably the biggest market for used gear that there is. Take your time and score yourself something awesome!

    Of all the cities in the country where one might find a used bass, LA probably gives you the largest selection...better than, say Ottumwa, Iowa (hometown of "Radar" O'Reilly!)

    Just think of all the musicians who came to the bright lights and big city to seek fame and the said in "Do You Know the way to San Jose":
    In a week - or maybe two - they'll make you a star
    Weeks turn into years and quickly pass
    And all the stars there never were are parkin' cars and pumpin' gas
    (AND selling their bass guitars!)
