    Hi all,

    I'm looking at a darryl jones lakland 4 string to possibly purchase online. I know that the original series came with Aero pickups. How can i tell if they are the Aero's?

    Can i determine it by the serial #? Build date? or do you actually need to take the pickup out to tell?

    Thanks!

    THe serial number can give you the year of manufacture and that should tell you a bit unless it's around the transition time. But there are clear Aero and non-Aero years.

    Mid-way through 2007 is when they started the switchover. So anything 2006 or before will be an Aero and anything 2008 after will be Lakland brand. If it's a 2007 then it could be a toss up and you would need another way to identify.
