    You thought I was kidding, eh? Well my new Lakland 55-94 Deluxe fretless is ordered. Teal green quilt, no burst, gold hardware (yes, it's a vanity bass), Bartolinis, ebony board. I'm not going to pee until I receive it. They're telling me a 3-month turn-around on it. I'll be very large by then, for sure. The Pedulla is for sale, btw.

    Let me be the first to say...Laklands suck. A total ripoff.

    Indeed. My ultimate goal is to have as many Laklands as you have Conklins. Are you listening, Dan?

    what's the exchange rate for 4 and 5 strings as compared to 7 and 8? i mean, are you going by # of instruments, # of necks, or # of strings?

    it would make a difference, you know.

    C'mon, it's a pipe dream anyway. You have a HUGE head start on me, and they only print so much money each year. It would be a scramble between us to see who was going to deplete the circulating currency. Let's just do it on the basis of necks. At least you'll get extra credit for the Medusa.

    Now here's something completely else. Our company's General Counsel is a first cousin, twice removed, to the manufacturers of D'Addario strings. I haven't asked if she can get me discounts on Slowwounds (which I like), but you never know. So I'm connected. Nyaaa nyaaa nyaaa.

  10. After I got my Sadowsky PJ5, I found I wasn't playing my Lakland Deluxe 55/94 much anymore, so I contacted Dan and we worked out a deal for him to convert it to a lined ebony fretless. I sent it back to the factory, and they swapped the birdseye fretted neck for the ebony lined fretless neck and I got it back in two weeks... for only $200. I love it, I bet you'll love yours!

    LOL. I was thinking the other day, what if I like the green one better than the fretted Amber I already have? Maybe I can play mix 'n' match. I play fretted more than I play fretless. So, ya wanna buy a Pedulla?
     
  12. not gonna pee till you get it...

    I wouldn´t recommend that you know... you might blow up some organs inside....
     
  13. Not pee till you get it, wouldn't recomend it either, else you'll wake every mornin, or many a mornin in your piss. not too good of a situation huh?

    On another note, in a month i'm puttin out my order for a Stingray 5, Fretless, with a piezo bridge on it as well. Aw yeah!
