    I`m looking for shops in the Chicago area to help consign a upright bass I`ve
    just finished. I was living in Austin Tx., but have moved to Stevens Point Wi. where I have set up shop and will continue to do build and repair. If anyone in knows of shops that sell/consign basses, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    Eric,

    You didn't buy my Gagnon Maggini did you? They had it on consignment.

    They're a good shop to deal with. Also I hear good things about Mark Sonksen, but have never dealt with him

    Louis, I don't think I ever saw that bass. When was it there?
