    I believe it's the block between 6th and 7th Ave, or very close to that.

    Have fun! :)

    It's not really that many stores anymore. Sam Ash bought most of them and made them departments of Sam Ash. They even bought Manny's but kept the Manny's sign up front.

    Rudy's is worth checking out, they have some nice stuff ... but they can be pretty dismissive unless you make clear you're there to buy something for real.

    Rudy's is cool, but very expensive. The basses are on the third floor, I walked in, walked out screaming I am not worthy!

    48th street custom is gone. Rudys is on the high end of the price spectrum and they isint too much room for negotating their. My by far Favorite Bass place in the NYC area is in Brooklyn @ Sadowsky Guitars ;) .www.sadowsky.com
