    Hi there TB'ers,

    I'm traveling to Spokane for a gig Oct. 9-11 and would love to try to rent something in the area as opposed to renting a removable neck instrument where I live and then flying with it. Does anyone have any info on players or a shop in the area? I've already checked rentabass.com and Gollihur and didn't find anything at all. Google turned up a couple of band/orchestra instrument shops who carry student instruments, but even they are all rented out.

    I don't need anything fancy- It's for a Django Reinhardt-ish gypsy jazz band and when the bass I usually use is a 60's Kay. I think any halfway-decent plywood instrument would be just fine.

    Thanks all!

    Thanks John, that was exactly what I needed. I just got of the phone with Justin, Jay Prior's apprentice, and he sorted me out.

    Talkbass to the rescue!
