    There is no good bass shop in the Philly area. Not even a dedicated bass shop. At most you'll find a couple of low level carved basses in some of the violin shops. Sad but true...

    Since your in Atlantic City, you're only an hour from New York City, forget Philly and check out all The Groove Shop, Sadowsky and all those cool guys in the Apple!

    There are plenty of shops; a few guitar specialists, your typical big-box retailers, but not a single bass shop.
