    Hello fellow bassists; first post here!

    I am taking a trip to the Czech Republic this summer and am hoping to find a nice older Czech made bass there (Juzek for example). Can anyone recommend a good music store? Also does anyone have an opinion about whether Czech is a good place to buy a bass? ie can I expect to find some "deals" there or are prices the same as in North America? Thanks.

    I'll be in Prague as well, end of March.
    I'm also curious about Luthiers & instruments.
    I would think Ken Smith and others would know about travelling Europe for instruments.

    I can just imagine trying to check a Double Bass in as "hand luggage"at the airline desk!! ;)

    Thanks Ken and others...I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for, just something better quality than what I have (new plywood begginner bass).

    That's why I was jokingly saying :

    "I can just imagine (Zedlee)trying to check a Double Bass in as "hand luggage"at the airline desk!! ;)

    Don't I just know this!!

    I look longingly at the prices you guys in the US talk about...:(
    Everything in Europe is at least twice the price!!


    Good advice - no doubt!
