Got My Lakland

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by hoodadoo, Mar 29, 2005.

  1. I am a happy camper. My 2003 (1st year) Darryl Jones signature Lakland bass arrived today. It is the pearl white finish model, with the pearl white/black sparkle pickguard, maple neck. The condition is an absolute 10, pristine. It came with a set of high-end LaBella Flat wound Deep Talkin' Bass strings, medium gauge. I'm going to change out the strings probably to Smith medium round wounds, and set the action a little higher. With the flat wounds on it the action is set a little too low for me. For now I'll be playing it through my Ampeg 250 Porta Bass, or my 68' B-15.
  2. Pictures man....we need pictures. TV has killed what little imagination our society has left. Really though it sounds like a winner.

    Is that the one that was on eBay? I saw it, and was blown away by how gorgeous it is. Just stunning. I was so impressed that I e-mailed the link to one of my music buddies, who's not very into bass. If I didn't already have a great J, I may have gone for it myself!

    Love your signature. As a former rugby player (3 years), does that make me a former badass? :ninja: :p
  5. Nedmundo, yes, it was the one on eBay. I was very surprised there wasn't a lot of last minute bidding on it. I had a gig that night and placed a 775.00 bid that showed the reserve, which was 750.00. Because I knew I wasn't going to be home I padded my bid. When I checked when I got home, expecting to see a bunch of bids...there were no other bids after me. I think for the 775.00 I landed a great deal for this bass. A bassist friend of mine bought the black finish model from Juniors Music in Clinton, Ct for 1100.00+

  7. I hope so. I played rugby for three years also. (insert tough-guy smilie)

    Nicely done, it's gorgeous and the price is right. I'll bet it sounds pretty nice through your amps, too.
