Tax time is once again upon us, and lucky for me, I am looking at getting some cash to help ease my GAS. I have been looking at Lakland for the past while and they are starting to grow on me. So, my questions are: in alot of pictures, the body seems to have rather square angles, (on the edge) is this so? It doesn't seem to be as smooth and rounded as a Fender Jazz. I am playing some punk, rock, but mostly classic metal (think Black Sabbath) through a Traynor MkII. Would this guitar and amp be happy together? Does anybody know the actual weight of a 44-01? I have searched previous posts, and it seems the consensus is to buy up, and get the 44-02. Is this still true? I play mostly with fingers and have gotten used to the placement of the pups on my Fenders (Geddy, P Deluxe, P Hot Rod) at the neck position for a thrumbrest. Does anybody have any input to this. Are the Lakland pups in the same spot (or as close as possible) to Fender's pup placement, or would I notice a difference? Any other useful bits of info would be greatly appreciated!
