I was driving in to work today, and thinking how fortunate I am that the best bass I ever played happens to be one I own. I was at Makin Music in Chicago a while back, and I played a Lakland 4-94 to see what all the Lakland hype was about. After an hour and a half that breezed by like it was 20 mins, I was convinced it isn't just hype. I talked to my wife later about my trip, and told her about the 4-94 and I said "it's the best bass I've ever played, I can see why they cost so much". I didn't have the dough for the bass, but a few months later it popped up on Ebay for about $600 less than they were asking for it. The rest is history............. Anybody else?
