    Does anyone know if a Raven Labs P-retrofit would fit into a Lakland Bob Glaub Skyline without having to modify the control cavity. Also does anyone have any pics of a Natural/Rosewood Bob Glaub?

    I remember Dan Lakin trying a Raven labs preamp in a Glaub about a year ago, so it should fit just fine. However, I never made it over to the factory to check it out, so I can't say how it sounded.
     
  3. I have a Natural/Rosewood Skyline Bob Glaub with a Jazz Neck and a custom Tortoise Shell Pickguard from Jeannie's Pickguards. Sent you an email...will take some pics and email them to you tomorrow.

    Alright thanks. I replied to you're e-mail.

    Does anyone know for sure if the Raven Labs will fit?

    The Raven labs preamp will fit just fine. It is an excellent choice with the Lindy Fralins, but you might consider an outboard preamp like the Sadowsky, Aguilar, or Fodera models to keep from changing the passive abilities.
