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?

    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!!
