    I've recently given in to a rash of Gas ....and picked up these 2 5'ers !!!

    The 1st one from TB'er FC (thanks bro !!)
    Brubaker NBS1-5 : Bart j/j config ...Bart Pre...very smooth sounding, easy to play 5 .


    The next is a Lakland Custom 55-94 . I just got it several hours ago .... so I've just started playin' around with it. This one was on Ebay last week...but didnt reach reserve or the BIN. I made him an offer.....he didn't refuse !! ;)


    Like I stated earlier.....I have to spend some time with the Lakland.......then I'll post a report !!

    Initially......the lakland is extremely light....I'd say around 7.5 lbs.....a pleasure to have hangin' off yur shoulder !!! The p/up config is bart j/mm I'm psyched about that....

    More later !!!!!

    Who says X-mas isn't around the corner ??

    .....yeah,'s a Dolphin Pro II (the bolt on)

    I was selling it (Ebay....) but it didnt get too much interest.....
    so I guess I'll keep it.....not gonna 'give' it away ;)

    Stay low
  5. Haha, yeah that Dolphin in the background used to belong to me too! I think PJR is selling it right now, and since he's from New York, you can make him an offer he can't refuse.
  6. A fiver eh???

    (it's the one on the right)

    I think Andy bought that Lakland off of me, it has a scratchy pot if I am not mistaken, as a matter of fact I am 99% sure I sold him that bass....good deal. I originally bought it for $1200....

    Thanks......The room- it's the downstairs of my home....that I converted to a rehearsal space for my band.

    2" wall no means soundproofing, but helps to 'tame' the high frequencies a bit: read cymbal crashes !!!

    ....had major gigs last the rest of the band's stuff in the garage still...

    Back on Topic: The Lakland is super easy to play..., very light...hangs off your shoulder nicely...
    I think I'm gonna like this .... :)

    Yo Brad.....go ahead and 'horn''s fair in Love, War and Buying basses !!! ;)
