    Can anyone confirm this? The new I got was it has been sold to Hanson Pickups who make the Lakland pickups and are also in Chicago. I don't know how or if this will effect the basses.
     
  2. It's true. There was a big thread here about it but it got deleted
     
  3. This is old news. There's already a thread addressing this issue.:eyebrow:

    Apparently because it started with a press release. It's too bad, there was some good discussion in there.

    3tsb, there is a thread on the LOG board about this (Lakland Changes) in the Markus' Corner forum. I'd link it, but I'm not sure that's kosher, either.

    Surely this is a legitimate subject of discussion on TB?

    News from April 30th, as the press release is dated, is old news? First I've heard of it.

    Well, I'm impressed that he was able to sell it at all. It isn't exactly an industry secret that the business wasn't ever profitable. That he was able to sell it at all is impressive.

    There was a long discussion that apparantly got deleted....

    Maybe because it was full of speculation and some negativity along with some interesting and good opinions.

    So, now we'll have pre-WhateverCompany Laklands and the newer, "never the same" models. Isn't that the way it always ends up?

    Yeah that's right, I heard on HC that original Indonesian Laklands have way more mojo than the post-April-30th ones.

    Wow, I have an already disco'ed Korean 2003 55-01D that is bone stock. Now that's like a pre-CBS '59 P-bass, right? ;) :D

    Yes, did you hear that pre-hanson's are all the rage. We really need a sarcasm font.
