    I just picked this up this little gem. I am now in bass heaven:D I love the neck, It gets convincing J-bass and MM tones. I wonder why i waited so long:)
    Sorry about the poor pics. I'm not too good with a camera.

    Woops. I forgot. It's a Lakland Skyline 55-02 3 tone sunburst? with maple board.
    Daddy like:D
     
  5. Very nice!! I love quilt tops with a sunburst finish - they look so classy.

    Congratulations on a beauty!:D

    Killer bass man...Laklands are always beautiful, and I love the body. I dig the sunburst.

    Enjoy your new bass!

    Thanks all. I just returned from band rehearsal and all I can say is WOW! And more WOW. I always thought Skylines were good. But now I’m a true believer. I played (well tried too anyway) everything I could think of and the bass preformed beautifully. Finally my G.A.S. has subsided..ah..For now, that is;)
