    :oops: :cool:
    Just got a Lakland skyline Duck Dunn bass.
    I know Lakland bass are well talked about here a TB.
    If your into the Fender Precision bass, the Lakland's are the way to go.
    I've own two older fenders, a 1966 and 1970 P-bass.
    I must say the Lakland play, and sounds as good as my fenders.
    The fret job is first rate.
    Fralin pickups nail that old 60's sound.
    And bass has string thru bridge.
    A great playing and sounds bass for live gigs.
    Thanks to Steve Barr at Vintage Bass Trading Co. for a great deal, and srevice.

    Haven't heard of this model. Is it different from the Bob Glaub model?

    The Duck Dunn also has block inlays on the neck, which is way cool.
  5. As of now the Duck Dunn limited edition is a sunburst/maple neck Glaub with a gold andonized pickguard.

    The block inlay Duck Dunn will not be out until probably early next year. That will ahve a jazz width neck.

    Does it come with thirty-year old flatwounds? That's what you need for that authentic Duck Dunn sound. :D

    The Lmt. Edition has wide 1 3/4 neck.
    Played great though.
    not hard to get use to.

    I mentioned before that I played a Duck Dunn back in the spring and i was really impressed. I played one again at the first of the month and it didn't do so much for me. Still, I would say that the Skyline's fit and finish is equal to that of an American Standard P-bass.
