I just saw something on Bass Central-- a new D. Lakin model called "The Shark," which made me chuckle. Take a MM Stingray body, move the 'bucker toward the bridge, add a J single coil in the mid position, and voila! the Shark! I apologize if this has already been posted, but I watch this forum pretty darn closely and didn't see this come up. Unless someone posted it while I was sleeping and it somehow got NO replies (highly doubtful). Photo credit to BassCentral: My opinion-- why did they not do this before? The only aesthetic issue I have with it is how high the control plate comes up on the body (right up to the waist). Other than that, I think this is really cool! And yes, I like the headstock, I know a lot of guys don't, but I think it neatly blends the lines of the "Tele" style headstock on the original '51-'56 P's, with that of the '57 and later P&J headstock. Again, just my opinion. Cool bass. I'd love to hear from someone (preferably not in a certain program) who played/heard/owns one!
