lakland in colorado

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by worldwidepants, Jan 22, 2002.


  1. Anybody have one? I am dying to get my hands on one. I am at the deciding point between a lakland (either a 55-02 or a used 55-94) or a stingray 5. I just (tonight) recieved word that I landed a church gig that is pretty well payed so I will be able to have one very soon. So if anyone has a lakland in denver or even colorado springs or fort collins I would love to get together.
     
  2. I wanted one very badly a couple years ago. As far as I can tell, the closest dealer that carries them is in Kansas! :(

    Sorry!

    You could always find one you like and buy it from an online retailer. The good ones offer a certain amount of time that you can return the bass if you aren't happy with it.
     
  4. That's how I bought my Laklands. I figured if I didn't like them I could either return them or resell them. I bought used so I figured I wouldn't lose on the resale value if I did decide to let them go. You are chancing it a bit doing it online but I couldn't be happier with both my Laklands.

    Call Bass Central down in Florida and talk to Gard, or PM Gard on this board. He is a VERY convincing salesman:D and can get you the best price on any Lakland that you could possibly want. I bought my 55-94 there, and could not be happier.

    Second that....I've bought 2 Laklands and a Stingray 5 from Beaver, Gard, and the crew at Bass Central. Best possible people to deal with.
     
  7. so nobody has one that lives here? I will probably end up going the bass central route but I would feel more secure if I could just try one to see if it's right without going through the whole system.
