I received a Lakland 55-01 yesterday that I bought from Mobax. I couldn't be happier with this bass. Brought it to rehearsal last night and the boys in the band were floored by the sound of this thing. For the money, this is a really strong instrument. Before I bought it, instruments I tried in this class included imported Fenders, Stingrays, and a bunch of Schecters. Just thrilled with this bass.
