Yey!! Fedex came thru. Delivered right on time. A new Lakland 44-64 PJ custom deluxe. I have never owned any bass as beautiful as this thing. Mother of pearl inlays and the banding on the neck is outstanding. Dammed near tuned out of the cardboard box. This one was on their "B" stock list. Significant discount. I couldn't pass it up. Plek'd on 9.13.19 it plays like a dream. It's gonna be a long night. Gotta remember to unplug the cabs with the earphones this time. Lakland worked with me to have the beast shipped to a Fedex center for pickup. Thanks to the crew at Lakland.
