Anxiety for my bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Uforia, Aug 18, 2002.


  1. Well guys, It is down to this one week and my lakland 5501 deluxe with a maple finger board, Chrom hardware,
    quilt maple top with a cherry sunburst finish will be payed for. Then it is just a mater of waiting for it to arrive from basscentral.
    Oh the anxiety of it's arrival is just impossible. I can't wait till it get's here.

    Thanks alot to Gard for hooking me up and thanks to Beaver at basscentral for being patient with me and working with me on it.
    It took me a little longer to pay it off than I wanted due to unexspected finacial problems but it just a few days it will be all mine.:D

    I will have pics of it up as soon as it arrives, for all to admire.:D

  9. Well guys here is the update. My very first bass of my very own the new lakland 5501 arrived last friday about 3 o'clock.
    Took some pics over the weekend of it to post. Then went to use my darn umax astra 200p scanner for the first time
    sence loading XP on my computer. My scanner will not work because it is not compatible with XP there is not a driver
    for the astra 2000p for XP not by Microsoft or Umax. So as soon as I can borrow a digital camera from one of our friends I will have some pics up.

    So for now he is a small review of it. I had Jeff break it in for me at his gig that Friday night. It sounded good to me I loved it.
    The way it sound and the tone it gave. It was a bit heavier than I like but that just takes getting used to.
    Other than that it feels and plays good.

    Altho Jeff likes it as well he said it is ok. He had a prob with the lakland strings that they were rough and tore up his fingers.

    Well that is the low down on the lakland as I said I'll have some pics and sound bites up as soon a I can.
