I went to a local store this morning with my Black Onyx Sterling, and walked out with a brand new Red/Rosewood Lakland 55-01. Oh baby. Want to hear the good part, I bought the Sterling for $550 last week at the Guitar Center Memorial Day sale, took it to this store, they said they'd give me 650 for trade in, and another $100 out of pocket and I have a nice brand new Lakland. My first Lakland and only second 5 string. This babe isn't going anywhere for awhile. Isn't there a pickguard I can order for this? I figure a tort guard would look really nice. Sorry about the crappy pic. I need to take some outside pics.
