San Fran Bass Stores?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Masamax, Jan 10, 2004.


  1. Are there any stores in San Fran that I should absolutely check out while I am down there in April? I can find almost anything that is production around here, but is there any store in San Fran that has a ton of basses that is worth checking out?

    Well, if you're willing to drive south for 45 minutes, Gelb Music in Redwood city is excellent. Usually, there are F basses, MTDs, Zons (built nearby), Laklands, and a host of others including Fender of course. It's a good place to do high end comparisons. The people that work there are nice and know their stuff. I don't know if it's a must-see, but Gelb's a fun place to check out.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I recommend Haight-Asbury Music, which is just 2 or 3 doors down from the intersection on Haight (I think). Good guys and a nice selection.
