    i know it's not terribly close, but Banana's in San Rafael has a lot of cards on their desks. Banana's - well san raf - sees a lot of very high rent talent, cause that store is a hotspot for marin lay overs & the convention center, but they are also excellent on prices for equip and have really smart, extremely experienced people most of the time.

    they do a ton of performance business and can be a bit of secret up here with all the guitar center's tattoo parlours and wholesaler's around.

    you might wanna just call em.

    Kai's good, but he teaches out of his studio in Oakland.

    Jeremy Cohen, on the other hand lives and teaches in Berkeley. I had lessons with him. Very cool guy.

    He's a TalkBass member too. His handle is JeremyC.
