    Anyone know what happened to Bass Palace in Scranton, PA? Its web site has been down for weeks. I know the guy who owned the shop was impossible to contact, he had odd store hours and he never returned emails or checked them enough.

    Any idea what happened?

    I was wondering the same thing. My guess is Bass Palace is no more. I purchased my 83 Spector from there. I got a super deal and had no problems with contacting them (they did write down the shipping address incorrectly, but the UPS guy figured it out). Oh well, I'm good as long as Bass Northwest sticks around!

    I can't even hit Bass Northwest anymore :( :( Anybody know what happened to them? I haven't been able to hit that site in at least a month.

    Bass Northwest announced their closure a while back. The owner was suffering from health problems. See

    Received a gift from Sire* (see sig)
    The store is close enough to me (45 minutes or so) I should just drive down and check it out, but I've never been there.

    FYI - This thread is 10 years old.

    BTW - An owner that is hard to reach, works odd hours and never answers customer emails.....and OP is wondering what happened? I think he answered his own question.
