Last week I was in Maryland visiting my family and in-laws and stopped by Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center. Let me tell you, all you MD people are lucky! What a selection of basses and amps! Its the only store I've ever been in that had American Spectors in stock (although not on the floor). Nice selection of everything else too - I better not hear anyone complain from out there! In Missouri we have Guitar Center crap and but a few small independent boutique shops - nothing with that varied selection. Go buy me something.
