    Can't seem to find much info online about Lakland's newest, even though it's been on the market for a few months now. Does anyone have sound clips or videos of it? I've been on the fence about wether to get an old Hofner or a Lakland decade for a few months now, but this might satisfy both, kind of. here's the link

    Thanks in advance.

    If it's anywhere near as nice as the full scale Lakland HB,the 30 should be an awesome bass,for those that like SS....someone on TB has one,and has posted his impressions,which were very favorable.

    I've got one and I love it! I've been using it for nearly every gig as it has
    a warm yet articulate sound. Here is a demo I did of the bass:

    I'm pretty keen on one of these as well. Make sure you post your thoughts if you get a chance to play one or end up buying one.

    I would get the SS HB over the long scale HB any day.

    I have a SS HB and the long, and they're both amazing. But I LOVE my SS HB. I'd get it! You won't be disappointed...

    And seriously, vs the hofner it's no contest.

    Gotta wonder what Sir Paul would think of this!
