    It's a good thing too, because I was worried there weren't enough Fender copies out there.

    Very interesting, indeed. I'll be on the lookout for these.

    I'm guessing they will be a tad on the expensive side.

    interesting.... I remember when I used to get his newsletter back in the 90's. one of them had a little blurb about his new Lakland bass. it would have bartolinis and cost 1400 bucks!!! way too expensive.

    I wonder if these DLB's will be just as expensive.

    If they're made in the US. But maybe he's going for an import lineup similar to what Reverend does. Dunno, just speculation on my part.

    I hope he's more successful at his rebirth than David Nordschow was.

    I wish Dan the best and hope it works out. It'd be a great benefit for him and us.

    You said "was" which implies DNA is no longer in business? I thought I saw a pic or two from NAMM?

    I think he is implying that he isn't doing quite the business people would have expected from the guy that started Eden. Not a big splash when he came back.

    Pic or two of what, and where? Try finding anything new about DNA on the internet. I'll look for his stuff at NAMM tomorrow, but he doesn't have a booth. He shared space with Koch last year. So far his amp is vaporware.

    Yeah, it was hard enough to find the website even using Google and the updates look rather sparse.

    Sorry for the derail.
