    Hi Everyone,
    Hot looking site, very nice.
    Anyways, I was hoping for some help, I'm on the lookout for my first 5 string, so I'm looking around the net for the best pricing and service. I'm looking for some thing nice and fat like a Musicman or a Lakland GandL even boutique or something like that, just gotta rock and cut through.

    Anyhoo, what I was hoping was if people could tell me there favourite bass store (and the web site address), and favourite 5 stringer in around that 2 grand mark (new or used)

    Ain't that the sad, surprising truth. You'd think a place with such a rich bass history would have a high end bass shop. But I work in Delaware, which has no sales tax, and there's a good Fender dealer just down the pike, so I'll live.

    Other sites would be www.elderly.com and rudysmusic.com.
