    I had a chance to visit Lakland in Chicago while on tour, where I met Dan Lakin and got a chance to purchase 2 44-02's. All I have to say is that I was a committed Stingray fan for years until I played these basses. I have now used them every night on tour with my Aggie DB750 and I have to say that out of my large collection of basses, these are by far the finest instruments I have ever played.

    I am in no way affiliated with Lakland, but I am truly floored by their gear. I strongly suggest if you ever have a chance to play one of these basses, don't hesitate to do so, you won't be sorry.

    just curious, but why would you buy 2 of the same instrument? did you get different electronics or anything? just different finishes?

    I have to agree. Lakland basses are great. I have a Skyline Joe Osborn that I absolutely love. It is the oldest bass in my collection having been with me 15 months.

    I bought 2 because 1 is a backup for live work.

    i'll give my thumbs up for lakland (i own a 55-94)...

    there seems to be a lovefest here for these basses, so i don't care to be too profuse and jump in and praise them....there are many good instruments out there, but this brand can hold its own against anything.....

    I'm guessing so he can have one pre-tuned down half-step?
