I got to tour the Lakland factory yesterday while I was in Chicago for the Stones concert. I brought my bass in for a setup (which Dan woudn't take any money for when the techs were finished) and I spent about half an hour talking to him and about twice that long playing everything I could get my hands on. I also tool a fair number of pictures and Dan showed me a couple of prototypes. I put up a small website so y'all could see. http://pointbeing.com/lakland_tour More on the factory tour later - but Dan and crew are some of the friendliest, most amazing people I've ever met.
