    So does anybody know if Lakland is still gonna offer Darkstars in their new lines of basses? I was looking at their website and they don't say anything about the darkstars, all they talk about is their new chisonic pickups...

    I hope they will still be available. I haven't heard the Chi=sonics but they are supposed to be real cool too.

    I do too, I just bought one with the Bartolini's, but I would still like to have one with the darkstars one day...

    Last time I talked to Fred Hammon, I believe he said they (Lakland) had not ordered a Dark Star from him in about a year.

    :meh: ... Dunno IF that means you can still order them or not?

    lakland is trying to get away from other brands of pickups and just use their own, wich i cool. all their pickups that they've been making are really great.

    thats a shame, while the lakland pickups do sound good, the darkstars have a very unique sound...

    Last time I spoke to them about a Decade, they said you could still order them with the DS's
