    Just received a Skyline Duck Dunn with DarkStar pup from Lakland a few minutes ago. Immediate impressions: fit and finish are superb. Have not had a chance to take it for a spin around the block just yet.

    Many thanks to Lakland.

    That's about as far from garden variety P bass as it gets. False advertizing!

    It's beautiful BTW. :)

    Once you take it for a spin, I would be interested to know if the Darkstar pu is noisy or not. I believe it is a single coil.

    I have a P bass, which is quiet, and would love a DD and would consider a DS if it is quiet.

    Oh, great looking bass!:hyper:

    If that's a garden variety P-bass, it must be the Clark Kent model!

    Lakland came through like a champ. My issue with the dude is still unresolved as he has failed to return the $500 he required to order the DD for me more than a year ago. I've filed formal complaints and have received responses from the Arizona State Attorney General's office and the FBI's Internet Fraud Division.

    Beautiful bass.

    I'm inspired to get a similar one for myself but with dots and a mint guard. Maybe next year.

    And good luck with the other issues.
