Lakland in the UK

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Jan 6, 2005.

  1. I'm currently looking for a Lakland Darryl Jones skyline series bass, but here's the catch: I live in the UK, and I cannot find anywhere that does them. Anyone know if anyone imports them/ distributes them? Any info on them?

    Many thanks

    The Bass Gallery in Camden Town, london, has a good choice of Lakland US and Skyline models. Have you checked with them if they carry the Darryl Jones model?

  5. Not yet. Will do soon though....
  6. ...And they do!! Looks like I know what I'll do this weekend. :D

    Yes - I bought my 55-02 Deluxe at the Bass Centre - I was there on the day they had just got a big shipment in and they had a whole wall of Lakland Skylines - I tried about half a dozen different models!! :)

    But they sold out really quickly - I think you need to phone the shops and ask when they are getting them in ?

    BUT - the Bass centre haven't been in Wapping for several years now - they're in Brune street near Liverpool St. Station!!
