    Hi,

    I am flying to central BC (probably Prince George) for a 2 week tour in mid-July.

    Does anyone know of a good place to rent a cheap 3/4 to 7/8 size bass in the central BC area of Canada?

    Thanks.

    Long & McQuade in Prince George should have a couple double basses for rent. Usually Eastman plywood tops or a Shen or two. This will be the easiest and possibly cheapest route. Maybe contact the store ahead to confirm, incase they can ship a rental bass in from another store if needed. Hope this helps bro!

    LOL! Thanks for the laugh, guys. ;)
    My real name is Jake de Villiers, but there wasn't enough room in the name box to fit the space...
