    :eek:Ordered a new USA Lakland 44-64 last week. Now I just have to wait 7 monthes for them to build it...!
  2. Good luck with that, I ordered a custom (not Lakland) and it took 15 months rather then the advised 15 weeks.

    The wait may seem like "forever" but the result will be well worth the wait!

    Mind sharing specs?

    +1! I'd love to hear more about it. I ordered and received a new 44-64 in 2011 and it's spectacular--my #1 and a lifetime keeper.

    Under 8 is tough to do, but mine can't be more than a hair over (I've never weighed it). I did ask them to wait for a piece of lighter alder.

    Haven't had an issue with my US Lakland case. They don't look as nice as the old white ones, true. But they're also not nearly as heavy, the white one is a load.
