    Has anyone ever tried the "New" hollowbody from Lakland?

    Yo, over here!

    Yeah, interesting bass, to say the least. Plays great sounds great, if you're looking for that 60's hollowbody bass tone. VERY expensive. Comes set up with flat wound strings. Great neck, huge body. Any specific questions?

    Yeah, I've played it. Gard pretty much summed it up. It's a cool, well-built, easy to play instrument. Didn't push my $3k button though;)
     
  4. I dug the look until I saw the bridge, it ruined everything for me (I only saw it in BP, I have never played anything even close to anything that nice, the local GC wont let me even touch a Ric!)

    Anyone knows why they didn't use a floating bridge?
     
  6. No, but they should have, the conventional bridge doenst fit at all

    HEY GUYS........I OWN LAKLAND HOLLOWBODY SERIAL #24! IT TOTALLY KICKS BUTT! SHORELINE GOLD WITH ROSEWOOD BOARD. I GOT IT FROM DAN TO BE ABLE TO RETIRE MY LES PAUL SIGNATURE. I HAVEN'T EVEN LOOKED AT MY L.P.S. IN 6 MONTHS!(NO IT'S NOT FOR SALE)THIS THING IS WORTH EVERY PENNY IF YOUR SERIOUS, AND WORTH THE 9 MONTH WAIT. AS FOR THE BRIDGE, APPARENTLY YOU GUYS HAVEN'T EVER TRIED TO PLAY A LIVE ROCK GIG WITH A FLOATING BRIDGE. BY THE THIRD SONG THE BRIDGE IS IN THE THIRD ROW!!!!!!!
     
  8. Are you kidding or are you serious? Just wondering.. Thats not right IMO
     
  9. totally serious, they are very mean, they dont even hook up the nice amps, just the small combos :(

    I played one at Bass Day and I loved it, I'd have one if I could get it for about $1750 or less. ;) Until I can work such a deal, I'll have to settle for my orange Gretsch Broadkaster.
