    New Skyline Duck Dunn owner here.

    What aftermarket hard case will fit this like a glove? I'll take it to my local Guitar Center and Sam Ash to physically test whatever they have. But thought I'd ask here as someone's likely done all of the work for me already or has an online alternative to something better and less expensive than a local buy from those big boys.

    Hmm, I'll have to find out what the date on my pickup's are then. I like the sound, but I'm not sure if I'm not 100% sure if I'm happy with it.

    I probably should have addressed him in my post, just used your quote as a vessel :smug:

    :eek: My tele may have to take a back seat someday.

    Very nice, Markus!
    I'm a Tele fan, and that thing gives me serious GAS. I might have to talk to Bo and John sometime...

    White Decades with black pgs just look so righteous.

    Just put a set of Precision flats on my -02. This is awesome. Playing through my **** little practice crate is actual enjoyable. Looking forward to hearing it through my actual rig!

    The first two are rare beasts. Ah, Evan responded.

    As for the latter, Ed Friedland's got a four-string version of that (it's called a 4-07 or 55-07, 'cause the Chis were developed in 2007). Here are two clips of him playing it.


    We should have a third posted soon--Ed did a clinic at Bass Emporium and used that bass for part of it. I was lucky enough to see the clinic in person.

    Yeah Evan, please find something...Your playing is way better than mine:) I might be able to put something together, but my fretless playing leaves something to be desired:help:

    Man Freidland's tone is Really nice

    It's my impression that the chi's sound a little rough.. they've got more growl to them?

    slightly similar to having a passive system?

    Now I hear what I like in his playing but it Could be his hands.. Is that the correct impression of chisonics? more growl, bite .. attack?

    FRETLESS US DJ:


    it's wearing flats with a little favoring towards the bridge. I love this bass to death!

    Hard to be so general with all ChiSonic basses, but a deeper thicker growl. Great note definition...very open sounding, but can get very angry when pushed.

    Anyone have some PICKGUARD suggestions for me? I'm having a hard time sourcing a replacement black/white/black guard for my Indonesian Skyline Duck Dunn manufactured in 12/2009.

    I actually bought some used guards off an older Skyline Duck Dunn with Lindys. They don't match my instrument. If I force the guard around the neck pocket and pickups, none of the screw holes line up.

    Here's what Lakland said to me:

    I contacted them about the fact their site only lists Duck Dunn / Glaub guards from 2004-2007 and here's their reply:
