    Can anyone give me the names of anyone selling/renting quality URB's in the VA/DC area?

    From what I understand, Bill Vaughan (NSO) does some importing of basses for sale from Italy. Mainly modern cremonese instruments - I know nothing regarding the quality.

    Mike Shank (Elizabethtown, PA) is about 2.5 hours from Loudoun County - if I lived around the DC/VA area, he would be the guy I would go to: honest, good workmanship, fair, and a good guy to boot.

    Good luck.

    Isn't the DC area home to "Bob's House of Basses?" Try Googling it; I think Bob has a good number of instruments for sale, of many quality levels.
