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.
