    Thought it might be cool (and helpful) to share both good and bad experiences with purveyors of bass gear, both on and off-line.

    I've had some terrific experiences lately with a new store in my area that I stumbled upon online, Giampietro Guitars http://www.giampietroguitars.com located in New Haven, CT. Fantastic selection of mostly high-end basses and gear, and great prices too. Bought my new Ken Smith BTN6 from them, as well as an Epifani T-310 (picking up a T-210 tomorrow). They sold my used Ken Smith for me online and got the price I was hoping for.

    If you're interested in Lakland, Smith, Mike Lull, Roscoe, Alembic, Fodera, MTD, Modulus, Aguilar, Stewart, Epifani, EA, F Basses, Alembic, Zon, Rick Turner....phew....bass heaven cats!
     
  2. I just ordered an Epifani T-310 from them too. Nice folks.
    If I like it (and I think I will), I'll either order another
    T-310 or a T-115 next week. Great pricing, too!
     
  3. I grew up in Connecticut, spent the first 18 years of my life there, and NOW they decide to put this awesome store 30 minutes from my old house??
    Next time I visit my folks I'm taking a side trip to Giampietro for sure. I have their website bookmarked and I always make sure I've got the drool cup strapped on!
    The only on-line deal I've done with a store was with West L.A. Music, http://www.westlamusic.com. I got my SM-900 from them, shipped to my door, for $250 less than it was selling for (before tax) at the local superstore. Ask for Derek Snyder at West L.A., he will hook you up.
