    yup...these Lakie P5ers are fantastic!

    I have one with the Hanson Vintage pickup and it sounds GREAT!

    nice coloring on the burst as well!

    That appears to be the Nordstrand pickup, to my eye.
    I have the Nord pup in my Lakland USA P5 prototype, and it kills.

  5. I thought the same thing when I got my LOG bass w/the Hanson vintage pickup. The Lakland pickups apparently have that staggered pole piece thingy as well. Dunno how that all works legally...

    I have an NP5 in Lakie P/J and it does kill!

    I thought the Skylines were all ash bodies. Is this a custom with Alder?

    Bump for a KILLER bass!

    The Lakland/Hanson has staggered poles as well?
    Huh...I'll be dog. Didn't know that.
     
  7. Offer being considered. Bass on hold but bring on any offers in case this one falls through.

    35". As of today, all 5-string Lakland Skylines are 35". There are only a few 5-string US Laklands with a 34" scale. I have not seen one yet.

    This is a great bass, I have one in a different color (the LOG Bass), and the playability and finish are superb. The Lakland/Hanson pickup is the bomb.
     
  10. I stand corrected. Re-checked the Lakland site and indeed, the Skylines are all ash. Thanks for catching that.

    Is the pickup on this bass the LH-Vintage or the LH-Neo Punch? And by the way, this thing is gorgeous!
     
  13. From the Lakland website (standard features of 5 string 55-64)

    "New Lakland Hybrid Split Pickup"

    I'm not aware of this being anything other than standard stock configuration.

    I think that probably makes it the Neo Punch but I could be wrong Thanks for the answer back.
