i love the lakland dj4 that i have on lay-away! but i have recently played an "UNO" bass at the local uno guitar shop and it plays great! it has tesla pickups (any good) a nice band name bridge (dont remember the brand). it is made of swamp ash, maple neck, rosewood fret board. the head-stock is a little longer so there is nore tention on the strings. it has a split single at the neck and a jazz at the bridge... the body of a p-bass and the neck of a skinny j-bass. i am going tomorrow with my amp so i can hear what it sounds like on my rig. i love the look! the headstock is a little heavy but nothing that i cant get over. what is all of your opinions on this brand... it is HUGE in korea (since it is a korean brand) but the bass i am looking at is a one-off and was made in the states by uno himeself. i met Uno the last time i was in and he sounded like he knew what he was doing. he has been in buiness since 2002 and i do not know his history before that. the price is half of what the lakland is but he also has basses in the $3000 range... HELP!!!
