    Seems like music stores around here are getting more stingy. Where do you guys find boxes for shipping? Thanks.

  3. try the mom and pop music stores, they seem to be much better at this than a big box retailer.

    I agree in theory - it's worth a shot.
    When I tried this at my local music store, they had not a single electric bass in stock. Many, many guitars tho...

    Bike shops. You have to cut them down some, but they work great and heavy duty.
     
  6. "Home improvements" stores sometimes have big flat pack boxes lying around out back, although I imagine a bit of diplomacy would come in useful to get a hold of them. I recently bought a set of shelves for my studio and re-used the box to shift a Spector 5-string. Got to the other side no probs.
