I just got him yesterday at Club Bass in Toronto. By far the nicest bass I've owned yet (my second bass lol!). I can't get over how great this bass is: the feel, sound, look, vibe, for under $1000 is pretty exciting for me. I went to a band practice RIGHT after I got it, and after my other band mates were complimenting it, it got right down to business delivering some awesome tones. Wellllll, time to join that Lakland Owner's Club now!
