OK, I went to Pete's Bass shop in Portland, and he is a great guy. However, most of his basses are either new, or practically new (on consignment). With my budget of 2k-3k, I was left with a pretty small choice. The bass I really liked was at the top of my budget, and I feel that maybe I could do a little better if I put more of an effort in my search. I am in the middle of Oregon, and it seems that the three cities that are within driving distance (they all seem 5 hours or less away) are Seattle, San Francisco and Boise. When I say "the three cities", I mean a big city with the possibility of a few shops I can poke my head into. What I need from you, the talkbass member, are a few reccomendations on places to shop for a DB. Those three cities are not the only places I am willing to go, they are more like my limits. So all of you NW talkbassers... HELP ME!
