  1. Specifically if anyone has a trans-white with maple board 55-94, I'd love to see some pics.

    :D

  3. Is that yours or is this a sales pitch, heheh.

    Hey Gard, is Bass Central near Orlando? My mom is building a house down there, and my sister already lives there, so I'll be heading down early next year and I'd love to stop by the store.

    It's mine!!!

    We're in Seminole County, just north of Orlando proper, near the intersection of 436 and 17-92, your sister will definitely know where that intersection is!!! :eek:

    Here is mine: #5001 (first production Lakland 5 string). Has lots of features not seen on the current models, including 34" scale, zero fret, and jack on top.

    The zero fret might be worthy of its own thread, but I am asuming it is to give the open notes the same sonic characteristics as fretted notes.
     
  8. So while we're on the subject of early Laklands, how's about this one? It's a trans red (GREAT color for stage, BTW) 54-94 Deluxe with a 34" scale, a 6-bolt neck, small pickups, and jack on top.

    I'm seriously looking for a fretted 54-94 (34" scale 5-string) Lakland Deluxe if anyone knows of one...

    Uh-oh. Goin' to see The Great Satan, huh? Bring lots of cash, or a fresh credit card.

    Anyway, here's my trans-white Lak for y'alls.
