Hi, Having not had the chance of playing the new 44-02, it's putting me off buying one. I will not get the chance to play this bass, as none of my local music stores are planning to stock them! The question is the neck? does anyone know the string spacing, radious & width of the neck? can you compare it to any other bass out there? If it helps matters i'm not a big fan of the MODULUS FLEA 4 (Flat & chunky) the last bass i bought. I think the Lakland 44-02 is the number one bass out there at the moment in that price range. Anyone got any pics? Sure is taking Lakland a long time to get them out there. Bye Bye.
