  1. I FINALLY made a decision on a new bass. Should be getting it Monday or Tuesday but can’t open it until Christmas! Lol. I am totally “Jazzed” (pun intended). Here it is:

    Lakland Skyline DJ4

    What's that color called? Daphne blue?

    Edit: nvm. Lake Placid Blue :)
     
  4. Thank you! Sooooooo looking forward to it. Read a plethora of outstanding reviews.
     
  5. Yeah... the pics posted on Sweetwater make it look pretty washed out. Like Ice Blue Metallic.

    Excellent choice
    Have fun with it!
     
  8. Thank you! It’s nice to hear that I have support in my decision. I think Lakland is a very “overlooked” company. Reading so many reviews regarding the craftsmanship and attention to detail, it’s really a no brainer. I can’t wait to strap that thing on and experience Lakland quality!

    Fender bias?

    I had a 55-01 that played like butter and sounded amazing....then I realized I’m a 4 string guy...

    Wish I had one of those bad boys!

  13. Huh?
     
  14. I’m really happy!
     
  15. Thank you! I guess it plays as pretty as it looks. The necks on Laklands are supposed to be incredible!
     
  16. Congrats! Man, that's gonna be a long week, like a little boy waiting for xmas

    I was asking if you thought that Lakland gets overlooked because people have a Fender bias. That is, they look at a J bass and dismiss it because it doesn't have the Fender logo.
     
  18. Ahhh... probably so. Never really thought about that. Good point.

    I finally got an LPB DJ4 last summer. Better J bass than any I’ve ever played plus more tonal range. Beautiful fit and finish. The neck is really comfortable, Pleked fretwork intonates and plays very evenly and easy. You will really like this bass. Good luck.
     
  20. Wow! I haven’t heard anything bad about these basses! In fact, nothing but outstanding reports and reviews from people. So looking forward to it. Thank you!
