    Dan is letting go of the prototype that Hugh McFarland built. Dan gives several reasons why he's letting go of it on his facebook page, but I'm personally sad to see that he's choosing to let his baby go......

    I would like to have this bass. It would go well with a JO prototype I own.

    They got so much right with these basses.

    I'm trying to access www.dlakinbasses.com to check out the current offerings but it doesn't seem to exist anymore. Hope all is well with Dan. All I get is:

    His site has been down for a while and it doesn't look like there are any new ones available from online dealers. Things aren't looking great for D Lakin basses.

    I also would be interested to see a link to the auction or sale info.

    Thanks Eilif, too bad. I was somewhat curious about the Shark 5.

    Yeah, his facebook's been pretty dead too. There was some discussion of this here...
    What happened to D Lakin?
    ...but not a whole lot of other info.

    Hopefully he lands on his feet whatever he decides to do next. He's done alot for the bass community -especially here in Chicago- over the years.
