I thought someone mentioned about one on these boards but I'm not sure. Well, did he?
i think so - i think it came out at around the same time as the geddy lee jazz bass. ask over at the fdp ( www.fenderforum.com )
Although I very well could be mistaken, I believe it was Made In Japan, in a limited run, in 1998.
Yes, he did.
take a look here:
*ahem* I would also like to add that it came out roughly around the time the Noel Redding signature came out.
Duck's playing [endorsing] Laklands now, even turning up in their NEW catalog. So far as I know, both he and the fellows in Chicago are quite happy with the relationship, and the Duck models are a sweet variation on the Glaub. Worth checking out!
There was a CIJ Fender sig model that was esentialy a 57 reissue in Candy Apple red with a gold andodized pickguard. Just recently Lakland issued USA and Skyline Duck Dun models (though I havn't seen mention of the USA model on the site yet). The model is basicaly a P-bass with a J-bass neck featuring a rosewood fingerboard and block inlays and binding. The Skyline comes in Candy Apple Red with a matching headstock. The USA is probably avaible in all the color offerec by Lakland.
It has a jazz neck? I thought Dunn was a P traditionalist of the highest order.
1998 Fender product announcement. (Behold the power of Googel! )
Nope, his Lakland basses before the sig' also had regular Jazz (Osbourn) necks. I've also seen picks of Duck on the last BT&MG tour playing a Fender P with a 70's Jazz neck on it (the bass the Lakland Duck model is based on). He's no spring Chicken, and I'm kinda guessing he finds the jazz neck a bit easier on hos hand.
Here's a pick from Lakland's site:
Duck Dunn Series
This legendary Blues Brother scores another hit! Similar to our Glaub series body, the Duck Dunn Signature features a narrower Osborn-sized neck with fingerboard blocks. An instant classic!
I met Duck once, what a great player!!!
Now this is probably the sexiest P-Bass I've ever seen. You'd even believe it tastes like candy if you lick it!
I'm not sure about licking it and all that, but I do agree that's one of the best looking P-basses I've seen!
Anyone remember a boutique version that Don Grosh built in the mid 90's?? I think it was in the USA Lakland Ball park.
He's had one candy apple red with gold pg fender model based ona 57 p I believe. He had one skyline lakland model with maple board burst finish and gold pg. Now he ahs the new red lakland us and skyline model.
There was also another version of a Duck Dunn Skyline. It had a "C" neck, maple fretboard and gold guard in three tone burst. There were only 20 or so made, I own one of them and it is a great bass so far. (just got it today on a trade)
As do I - great bass bro!
