    Very very Nice. I usually don't like white but that one has class.
  6. Whatever you do, don't eat cheetos before you play that bass. :D

    Very nice bass. That fretboard is awsome.

  8. Hah!

    It looks nice.

    Personally, and this is not to detract from your new prize, but I really have grown quite tired of Bartolini pickups/preamps. Their sound... is just the antithesis of what I go for.

    Just a thought though.

    I've found that any problems that I have with a Bart/Bart setup is alleviated by simply plugging the bass into the passive input as opposed to the active input. Some people say that Barts are too 'polite.' I just think they don't need the active buffer. I never had any problems with overdriving the preamp, either--and I am not a light player by any stretch of the imagination.

    Beautiful bass!

    thank you, all. i feel especially lucky to be getting it.

    tytyty to bointc, whom i got it from.
    if fedex doesn't 'lose' it or use it for a trampoline in transit, i'll be a happy man.
    i'll be testing it at a gig a week from saturday. i'll give a review after that.
    (pls. bear in mind i'm not an informed, experienced reviewer...)

    ooh....I seriously dig it!

    I love laklands! ordering a skyline 55-02 deluxe soon!

    That is really sweet just with the ash body. Fretboard is stunning also.

    Enjoy :D

    Incredible! This keeps reminding me how much I want every Lakland model. Specifically the 44-94, 55-94, 4 JO, 4 Jerry Scheff, and I guess I'll take some Darrels in all three colors.


    $ ... :(

    When I bought it, I picked it up over a 55-02 Deluxe, and this thing KILLS, I'm sad to let it go, but I had to do extensive dental work, and my car is about to die out on me, the F Bass was just more "my sound" in my ears when I was trying out Ash/Maple basses, but this bass was way killer, everywhere I played it I got compliments, I'd like to get one similar to it, as well as other Laklands (DJ5/Glaub), sometime in the future when I'm less strapped for cash.
