Lakland Hollowbody neck dive?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by dalkowski, Jan 24, 2013.

  1. Heyo --

    So I'm building up GAS for a 50th birthday present to myself and a Lakland Skyline Hollowbody is on the short list.

    Absent one turning up used at my local GC, my chances of auditioning one are nearly nil. My question to owners is, how is it with neck dive?

    I'll take my answer off the air, Diane.

    I had one,it was one of the best hb basses i've owned. The body is quite large,so there was zilch neck dive. You should go for it,they are really nice,and great sounding basses. (Mine was one with the bartolinis)
