    I'm getting a new Lakland 44-02 soon! I'm giddy like a girl scout about it too.

    Anyway, please post pics and sound samples of your Laks and Lak Skylines.

    Oh, yea, and one more thing: Laks are the best!

    I will. Here's a beauty 4-94 from the Lakland website.

    Note: I have never posted a pic before, so I don't know if this will work. Please tell me if it doesn't.

  5. Yeah, didn't work. I am either buying a Lakland 55-02 deluxe, or a Dingwall Afterburner 5 string in the spring. If I was sure I was getting a Lakland I would certainly want a 55-94, but they're just way too expensive for me right now. Besides, I would still rather have a korean made Lakland than an american made fender :). I know they are based off the fender and stingray, but as someone most elegently put before, 2 wrongs make a right!
     
  6. Here's a Lakland Prototype that I saw at Basspalace.
    I'd love to own a Lakland someday...

    hmmm, that looks like it might be a Skyline. But I can't read the headstock in this photo.

    P.S. Can someone please tell me how to post pics?

    It's very similar to my 55-01, but I have different tuners and quilted body. I WAS trying to sell it last week, but I decided to come up with cash another way and keep the bass. It's too good to sell!

    Do you guys prefer the sound of 44-02's, 55-02's, 44-94's, and 55-94's with Basslines or Barts?

    SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO POST PICS!!!
