I drove up today from Bethlehem, PA to Bass Palace, which is about 70 miles north, in Scranton. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT worth the drive. Bob and Bernardo are nice guys, knowledgeable bass men, and square dealers of the highest order. I traded in 2 basses I didn't want, threw in $200, and left with an awesome high-end 6-string electric guitar and the best-sounding and -feeling fretless I've ever played (a 1988 G&L L-2000 with no lines and an ebony board). These guys have an astounding inventory, and they make FAIR deals on trade-ins. Where else can you find that? If you haven't checked out their web site, I really recommend them very, very highly. Thanks, Bass Palace, for a fun afternoon and a good deal! PS - The neck-thru 5-string Tune bass (there are 2 on the site; I played the natural-wood one) sounds a LOT like a neck-thru Ken Smith, for a lot less dough. Somebody ought to buy it!
