  3. A big +1 for Willie's. Talk to Nate.
  4. You could also try Gbase ( ), which is an online database of dealer inventories. It's not always up to date, but there dozens of dealers in there, and it allows for some fairly specific searches.

    As for specific dealers, Dude is a straigh up as they come...

    You may want to check out Elderly Instruments in Lansing, Michigan or Junkyard Guitars in Royal Oak, Michigan.

    If you're looking for regular guitar stuff, try They don't have as much for vintage bass items, but they occasionally get things in. They are definitely great to work with and very knowledgeable.
