Just thought I'd share. I contacted Dan Lakin a few weeks back to inquire into the typical weight range of the Skyline 55-02. Mine was on the heavy side and hurting me on long gigs (yeah, I'm old). I was looking to possibly sell is and buy a new one if I knew I could find one on the lighter side. Instead of replying with the info I was expecting, Dan offered to swap my body for a brand new lighter body for the cost of the labor! I now have a brand spanking new body and at least 1 less pound of wood. They also did a full setup and even included a fresh set of strings and believe me, the price was right. The bass has never played better and I'm a happy camper. In my book, there are few bass manufacturers that take care of their customers as well as Lakland. Just spreading the word.
