    After looking for about 6 months, I finally found the perfect 4 stringer for me. I've realized that my favorite basses, aesthetically, are 70s fenders. There's something about block, binding, and natural/dark colors that appeals to me. That's why, when I found this bass, I was so excited!

    It's a humble Lakland Slyline DJ4, made in 2008. It's seems to be one of the last Korean made skylines, with a serial of 0805****. After setting it up to my liking, I couldn't tear myself away from it. Of all the Jazz basses I've had the chance to play, this ranks as one of the lightest, and nicest playing. The pickups are Laklands own, and have a great bite to them. Being used to my musicmaster w/ chromes on it, this has a completely different feel to it. I can still kind of get a p tone out of it, this thing shines with the bridge pickup favored, and the tone almost all the way on.

    Anyway, enough of my yapping, because everyone cares about the pictures. I'm certainly happy to oblige.
