    Hey all, I'll be in Chicago for work for the next 2 days, and was wondering if there are any must see bass shops I should be checking out while I'm here. Also, are any of you guys playing gigs this weekend? I'm dying for some Chicago blues:hyper:... or rock, or country, or jazz, or...

    Call Dan at Luthiers Access Group if you can make it out to the south suburbs for a day of drooling. www.luthiersaccessgroup.com

    I agree that Make'n Music is pretty sparse in the world of basses. They usually have one or two nice MTDs and a few Modulus', on top of a bunch of Fenders. Bass Club, I've had much better experiences with. They're almost as far (meaning you'll need a car and travel in ALMOST the same direction) as Luthiers Access Group.

    LAG has a bunch of Jerzy Drozds, MTDs, and generally a bunch of stuff by smaller boutique builders - generally a good mix of the high-end you really won't see anywhere else.

    I was pretty much blown away by Mark's collection at Bass Club Chicago - Foderas, Laklands, Sadowsky, Manne, Tobias, and tons of other cool stuff.

    Keep in mind that neither of the two shops are downtown - LAG is in the southwest suburbs and BCC is about 15 minutes straight south of Midway Airport.

    I have an Eve of the Eve gig tomorrow night at Tryst in Wrigleyville about 2 blocks south of the ballpark with my trio. We play about 3 hours beginning at about 9pm. Expect to see a Pedulla, a Lonnybass, my MTD (possibly) and my Alembic/Stewart/Schroeder rig. :cool:

    Mark is a great guy and his shop is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Check him out here: www.bassclubchicago.com.
