Just ordered a Skyline Glaub

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by James Hill, May 3, 2006.

  1. I just placed my order for a Lakland Skyline Glaub and it should be in my hands Friday. I intended to get a Fender Precision but my dealer said this one was in his opinion as good or better than the Fender I was considering so I'm taking his word for it. First time a shop has actually steered me towards a cheaper bass. Thought I would share a pic. I love the " old school " look of this bass. Hopefully it sounds as good as it looks.

    VERY wise choice... you will love it. Lakland set-up and playability are almost always great 'out of the box', and the fit and finish are wonderful.

    Now why didn't they have that pickguard option when I ordered mine? Oh well, here's mine:

    I believe http://JeanniePickguards.com makes Lakland pickguards. Roger will be able to fix almost anything you want.

    I don't know the guy but he's a regular at Dudepit.
  7. Squidfinger your Natural Glaub is very nice. I don't think that color is offered now. If this thing suits me as well as everyone thinks it will I'm already considering one with the Darkstar pickup. I love my Modulus VJ, but several people have told me the Lakland will suit the music my band plays more than the VJ. I guess I will soon find out.

    Very good choice. I love my Skyline Glaub.
  10. I have the same bass albeit with a single Darkstar. It is really a beautiful bass, light and plays like buttah! The tort guard was an upcharge and has been a special order option for a while.

  11. No doubt, this thing will smoke even the highest end Fenders. You will love this bass. CONGRATS!
