  14. These Laklands are all so beautiful. Does any one have any advice for me: Stingray 5 or Skyline 55-02? I can't decide, and am very sad that no one near me stocks Laklands for me to touch! Keep 'em coming!

    I got a Skyline 55-02 in part to replace my Stingray 4, which I'm selling since I don't use it much anymore. With the Lakland, I can cop Stingray-esque tones but have more flexibility with the neck J pup.
    If you're considering the Ray 5 because you want that Ray sound, then that's probably what you should buy as the Lakland will do a good approximation of that sound, but not the full thing. But the Lakland is an amazingly playable bass, the neck is thin and the b-string is great.

    well, if you insist... :D

    on the left is my 55-01, on the right is my JO5... in the spirit of "collect the entire set," there is a 55-02 in my future!

    Classic 55-94.

    I am probably going back to exclusively 4's though, so this one may hit the chopping block.
