Dan Lakin is sending me two 55-02's: One with Barts and the other with the new Lakland pickups and preamp. I want to get a bunch of people together to A/B them and provide feedback to Dan. To sweeten the deal, Dan is offering an incentive: Any bass player who shows up will get a FREE set of Lakland strings - 4 or 5 string set, flats or rounds - your choice. I *should* also have the new Lakland catalog available for everyone as well. To further sweeten the deal, if you bring along a bass with active electronics to compare with the Laklands, you get a FREE set of strings AND a FREE Lakland strap! You agree to try each bass and write down your thoughts, which I will collect at the end. We need to figure out where and when. It will be somewhere around the Boston or Connecticut area and I'm thinking about any of these dates: Feb 18 Feb 19 Feb 25 Feb 26 What's your preference? Also, if you're in the area and have a suitable venue, please email or PM me. Oh, and we'll need some amps. What do you guys think? Let's get this party started!
