    I bought a new Lakland Skyline 55-01. It's gorgeous! Maple neck, 5 string, maple quilt, 3-tone sunburst finish. The low B is as clear as the open D. I still can't believe it. The action is like nothing I've played before. I bought it to compliment my Fender Jazz, but in retrospect, I may have bought a replacement.

    I also bought a new amp head. The Mark Bass S450. It also sounds incredible. I love new stuff!


    I'll post some pics as soon as I can get my digital camera working.

    Congrats - I know how you feel.

    I traded for a 44-01 to try out and it ended up being my main player. It's everything I wanted (but could never get) out of a Jazz bass.

    Nice score! I love the necks on these things (and that's coming from a Geddy Lee jazz owner) :D
