Well, after a few weeks of waiting for Royal Mail to get their incompetant shipping and customs procedures out of the way, I finally received my new (to me) Lakland Joe Osborn 4. Its an absolutely sweet natural ash with birdseye maple fingerboard. Its been modded by Mike Lull with Nordstrand NJ4SE's and an Aguilar Obp-1 with a passive tone control. Here are the full specs: Model: U.S. Lakland Joe Osborn 4 String (est. 2005 build date) Serial Number: JO335 Case: Hardshell Included (original crème G&G case in excellent condition) Made In: Chicago, IL USA Construction: Neck: Quarter-Sawn Rock Maple with Graphite Reinforcement Bars Fingerboard: Birdseye Maple with Ebony dots Body: Swap Ash with black pickguard Finish: Natural (nice grain!)

Electronics: Pickups: Nordstrand NJ4SEs Preamp: 18-volt OBP-1 preamp Controls: Volume, blend, tone control (that pulls up to bypass the preamp), and stacked bass/treble boost Hardware: Bridge: Lakland Dual Access (through body or through bridge) Tuners: Hipshot Tapered Shaft, Reverse Gearing (does NOT have optional Hipshot D-Tuner) Chrome Pickup cover included (currently not installed) I got the bass of Bryan - CaptainWally on the forums who was a top guy to deal with. I am still at work at the moment so will need to take some pics and have a play when I get home, but I am totally excited about this bass.
