    HI all,
    I'll be visiting family in the LA area next month and was wondering if anyone could give me a few places to look at basses --- thanks!

    You might take a visit to Lemur Music. They aren't very far from LA. You can get their address off their website.

    There's a lot of good info in this thread.

    We're lucky to have many world-class luthiers here in L.A.: Lemur, World of Strings, Stein on Vine and Los Angeles Bass Works are the main choices. There's also Hammond Ashley in San Diego if you're going to be that far south.

    And if you're seriously looking for a new bass you should check out The Bass Cafe in Phoenix - they have a good selection at very reasonable prices.

  4. world of strings has a pretty nice selection. and john's a pleasure to work with. really prompt with anything you ask him to do.

    be sure to check him out
    you live in new york?
    why not check out david gage or kolstein's? (i'll be moving to manhattan this fall)
