Just got this in, but it's just not for me. Sounds stupid, but it sounds to "hollow". I know...I know...I don't want to hear it! Made In Indonesia. Single coil Chi-Sonics. Three tone translucent. Strung with LaBella Deep Talkin' flats. Weighs 8.5 lbs on my bathroom scale that weighs in half pound increments. To be on the safe side, say 8.5-9 lbs. It's this bass with an owner in-between. Very nice playing and looking bass. Issues: --In the words of the owner whose FS thread is linked above, "When I received it it had the typical minor crack between the base of neck and upper pickup and two tiny finish cracks in each corner of neck pocket. This seems to be pretty common. I contacted Lakland about it and they said it is just a thin layer of wood and isn't supporting anything and it will be fine to leave it that way. But it did bug me and it was repaired with cryogenic glue. You can still see the lines in the finish slightly if you look close enough." --The neck tone is not working. It was like that when I received it from the owner after the owner linked above. Bass is priced accordingly, IMO. If you feel I'm out of line let me know. $750 shipped/insured in a nice Roadrunner case with a little extra padding to make the bass fit nice and snug. This is a great deal for somebody handy with a soldering iron. Trades? Prolly not. But you can always tirekick. I don't mind. 44-02's with the Lakland/Hanson pickups/pre and L2k's are pretty much what I desire the most, ATM.
