    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the red tort on black. IMO, it would look sweet with a black pearloid pickguard, rosewood fretboard, and matching black headstock... kind of like a Modulus Flea, I guess. ;)

    Pretty! I only like Laklands with pickguards, too bad they seem pretty rare. :/

    By the way, is it just me or are there now screws in the pickguard's screw holes? Ah now I get it, he stuck it on with tape.

    Didn't he just remove the jazzpup and put a scratchplate instead?

    Why does the bass need the normal mix knob for anyway, it seems if there's a pot without the knob sticking very near the MM pickup, like it is pulled off.... but if there's nothing to mix... or was it? ;)

    The scratchplate looks a bit cheap to me anyway. Easy to say this is a strange model from Lakland itself. I doubt it.

    as for the bass i wouldn't buy it but if it was fairly cheap i would. just not the best looking lakland i've ever seen...
  14. Nope. Lakland offered that as a standard model for a while. The "76" in the name refers to the year the MusicMan Stingray debuted. Lakland also once made a "63" model with two J-pickups, but I think they discontinued it once the Joe Osborn model came out.

    Did you notice that the owner has the G, D, and A strings strung thru the body while the E and B are strung thru the bridge? Pretty smart as the larger diameter taper-wound strings don't always fare well with thru-body applications (too severe of a break angle...or so says Dan Lakin).
