    what up peeps! Taking a vacation from Cali. We are now in Seattle but heading up to Vancouver tomorrow. Just visited BassNW and wow, great store! Great to finally be inside the store since i've spent the last 5 years on their website. Nice staff as well. Unfortunately, i didn't find anything I liked or should i say "can afford..." Now, i was wondering if any of you know of an excellent bass/music store in Vancouver? We'll be there for three days and would really love to check out some basses. All I can find is R&R Music Centre - i'll definitely swing thru there. Let me know if y'all have any suggestions, would really appreciate it... thanks!

    Sorry 'bout that - that should be "Larrivee".

    Yep, part of their manufacturing plant on Cordova is toast:

  6. How sad. Larrivee make some exquisit guitars and IMHO the finest acoustic bass in the world!
    I hope they get up and running again!
    Good luck John!
