Was this a stock pick guard in 2010?
Lakland 44-02 Skyline 2010 black | Tom's Stuff
no, that's definitely not a stock pick guard.
If I'm not mistaken, a pick guard hasn't ever been a factory option on the Skyline 4402.
This would be the "stock" 44-02/94 pickguard
Lakland USA Series 44-94 Pickguard White
No.. But I love it
As usual our " Fred" comes though !
Great work man!!!
Your are always there to assist!!!!
It really changes the whole look of the instrument and accentuates the top horn in an unusual way.
At first I thought it was hideous but now I kinda like it.
It reminds me of some of those way out body shapes from LeCompte.
STSS - LeCompte Electric Bass
I like it...
Yes it's very different
Yes. My 4-94 SN 11 has a black one installed. I believe the non-deluxe 4-94s (opaque paint over alder bodies) came with these pickguards. Mine is trans tealburst over ash, and has not always sported the pickguard.. there's evidence of plenty of naked playtime under the guard. So, it was possibly purchased later.
You will have to be the curator of the Lakland museum. You have many more low serial numbers than me.
Fixed that for ya ;-).
I’d love to be the curator LOL. We would need a lot of donated specimens. Who wants to send us some basses?
Anyone ever compare a 44-64 (Bob Glaub or Duck Dunn) with a vintage ash bodied Fender Precision?
Electronics aside, what did you find were the differences to you?
I myself am in the situation where I have two Joe Osbornes, and am am thinking of getting a 44-64 or an ash/rosewood 70s Precision, and am trying to decide between the two, although I won't be in the situation where I can try them side by side.
Each guitar is different, and each set of ears are different, but I wanted to hear your insights!
I have had both items. It really comes down to preference. 70s fender will have a gloss neck whereas the lakland poly (skyline) or satin (usa). My personally preference is satin.
Body wise the fender will likely be heavier.
Sound wise they will be hard to compare because there are a lot of inconsistencies in 70s fenders. Lakland will sound more consistent from bass to bass
Hope this helps. My personal opinion is a vintage bass is really important to try first. The lakland is much less of a risk
Darn phone dictation...
And yes.. We need bass donations ..
Is this the only one in existence or did anyone else buy one when the LOG had the cafe express store?
I still have this and a clock ( which no longer works). The LOGo on the beer glass washed off long ago....
Actually, it’s a satin finish on Skylines and a tru oil finish on US.
Ah ok. Been a little while since I have shopped for a bass
An excellent summation!
Still using this, daily.
Me too! Every day at work!
