Hi everyone! I'm after a Lakland bass but without wanting to spend loads on a US made one or even the Japanese Shoreline ones. The Indonesian made Skylines look great but I pretty much like sticking to Japanese made basses because of their affordable Japanese built price (personally choice here really) I was looking at the ESP Japan website and came across this new Lakland Japan Skyline series which really interests me: http://www.espguitars.co.jp/lakland/skyline/index.html I was just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this new range if they are made in Japan? I did some digging around around Google and found some people have asked the same question and most of the time responses have been "Yes it is Japanese built" but it really doesn't say anywhere on the bass (I've looked at pictures) where it says "Made in Japan". I found these pictures that this Japan Skyline series comes with a Lakland certificate: http://www.blevel.hk/forum/viewthread.php?action=printable&tid=6312### Any has played one of these? I'm aware these do not have: - Graphite reinforced truss rod (Doesn't bother me) - Lakland pickups or Lakland pre-amp (Can be changed) - Alder body instead of Swamp ash (Great! I love the tone of Alder!) Thanks in advance all!
