    The man knows his Lakland's!

    BTW the pickguard is held in place w/ 2 sided tape. The only hole put into this was for the Z Switch.

    Me? A sticky? You are much too kind. (fade to dream sequence)**************************************

    "I'd like to thank my agent and my tech support staff and all you who have believed in me through the years. This ones for you ma!"

    Spencer, you hit the nail on the head! I really prefer 34" scale no matter how I trick myself into believing otherwise. I've also been playing mostly 4 strings so a narrower neck will also help. It is a shame, I am going to just 1 5'ver and this bass really covers what I need sound-wise. And it's a looker.:smug:

    No longer for sale. This 55-01 just beat the pants off what I thought would be it's replacement. :bassist:
