    Seems completely insane to me. Stuff should be totally cookie cutter considering the bodies are CnC'ed. But that's just the Joe Consumer in me talking.

    I agree. I also know that Roger can be a bit...abrasive (although he's done great work for me many times). There may be some issues with Indo pickguards not matching, but I would venture to say it may be a run to run issue, and not a "no two are alike" issue.
     
  3. Yeah it should be, you're right.

    I would of thought by now Roger would of had templates for both kinds of Skyline Glaubs/Dunns, unless he is deliberately not doing so for whatever reason, but he's kind of shooting himself in the foot IMO.

    Also, white pearloid, black/white/black, and possibly even red/white/red.

    I know...I do play them once a year when I give them their rub down:D
     


  14. Me too! What irons?[/QUOTE]

    One is a brand new Glaub. A price so low Leo has one in B stock. He could not beat the price.
    Then I'm looking for a 55-02 Deluxe or DJ5 (used).

    Soon :).

    All I know is that I love my 2 old Bart sets (pre 2001). I've never had a newer set to compare them too, or a Lakland MM/J & LH3 equipped 55. I've just heard the comments that folks have made. I will admit that they are mellow when compared to say... my growly Tele style Lakie, but they cut thru the mix and sit perfectly no matter what I play. And, I have no trouble dialing in treble if I need it.

    I also had a Nordy/audere equipped 55-02 that didn't get a thumbs up from me or my bands when A/Bed against the Barted 55-94.

    Well, not really :) (see above).

    Agree! As do black Decades w/ black guards.

    I'd like to get my mitts on Midas!!

    Is the Glaub a US?

    As Markus said, it's hard to generalize. The 4-07 is really versatile--it comes with humbucking Chi-sonics (with push/pull for single-coil-like operation) and an active/passive switch. (You can also get a passive tone knob added.) The 'buckers sound huge and a little on the dark side, while the singles have more attack and growl. Also, I know Ed got different pots put on his to get more high end out.

    Very nice!

    So get the Glaub and keep Midas!
     
  19. No. but the price........like I said, Leo has a "blem", same bass.
    The one I'm getting is less $$$. Local dealer seems to want out of their Laklands
     
  20. Its not that easy.
    Periodic weeks off work are catching up.
    Two sons graduating in a month.
    I don't know.....Listen, I know US Laklands are the s**t.
    I worry too much about scratching, or dinging it.
    I could use the dough to buy my kids graduation gifts(I never got anything when I graduated).
    Some decisions are hard, this one was easy. I'm perfectly fine with it.
    Plus I'm getting two Skylines with some funds left over.
    I've wanted a Glaub for way too long. Can't pass up the deal I found.



    Wait for Doug though
