    Well I decided to put D'Addario ETB92S Nylon Tapewound strings on my Landing.....the Dark Star pups really like those strings....it really sounds killer now and lots of growl.....had to raise the action slightly (I prefer low action) so I guess the action is medium low now but these strings make my hands fly, I started playing stuff I hadn't played in a long time and I feel inspired once again.....

    I've been restraining myself from e-mailing Jimmy again. I'm thinking mine is waiting for the finish to cure and some buffing. Closer every day...!

    Agreed. My bass has taken almost 18 months so far (I share some of the blame), but consistent contact is never at issue. Email him for any reason whatsoever; he's amazing with emails. Just don't take time from him finishing my bass!!! ;-)

    Hi fellow Landing players!

    Just found this thread. I have been a proud Landing owner for over three years. Jimmy delivered excellent customer service and an outstanding product.

    Some specs - L232 Ash Body, Maple neck/board, gold hardware, gold mirror pick guard, Dual EMG 35 pick ups. on board equalizer, "Fender" Electric Red paint.

    Jimmy actually has my Bass on his web site. Let me tell you, it never gets old having people ask about this Bass. They really dig the sound and the look. I always talk Jimmy up when describing it. I like to think of it as a Fender on Steroids that kicks a lot of ass and never gets tired : )

    Anyone thinking of a short or medium scale bass needs to consider Landing.

    Throw me a number, this was a great idea.

    I'm still waiting on mine. It is going to be a medium scale, with a graphite neck from Moses. Pups will be a MM and Jazz with a 2 band preamp. Not sure how far out it is though.

    Rob, that's one classy looking instrument! Eupharies, that's certainly quite the paint job. From the thumbnail it almost looks like a bowling ball swirl kind of finish, but then up close it's obviously not. Kinda like avant garde pointillism.

    I just got in touch with Jimmy a few days ago and apparently the holidays were a little chaotic for him, but he reports steady progress in the shop so I doubt there's anything to worry about. As everyone's said, he's always been great about communicating things and even after a long gap in emails (which I was fine with) his reply to my first message in four months came back within 30 minutes. Pretty good by any standard!

    Best,

    Wow, is that really all there are? Man, I've gotta start making more inconsequential posts in this topic so it pops up more often on the front page of the forum and attracts more Landing players.

    Posts... like this one :D

    Just got an update from Jimmy. Besides the Holiday slowdown, he had some time-consuming "bad, bad, bad" computer problems taking him away from productive activities. He did promise me some pics soon. Anticipation...!!!
