    Of all the sound clips they used to have up on the Lakland site back in the day, the samples of the Darkstar Decade stirred my soul far more than any of the others.

    There are several nice Laklands on the For Sale board but NONE like this one! If you're "on the fence" about this one, You had better act fast!

    I have a rosewood neck version of this bass and have to vouch for the amazing, tone, fit and finish and versatility. Many amazing basses have come and gone but the US decade is a lifer for me. (I'm also a dentist, 4 out of 5 of us surveyed love darkstarred Laklands)
