Show us your Laklands !

  1. Time we had such a thread !

    I have an NTMB - equipped 55-01 and am searching for a 3 tone sunburst 55-01 or 55-02 to convert to a fretless (unlined maple/epoxied fingerboard !). The neck and the string spacing on these basses is just perfect for me.

    So go on - whatever the model you have, get it featured on TB for us Lakland lovers to drool over......which reminds me - must put a piccie of my 55-01 on this thread.

    Ok - here is one my wife bought for me! It's nice to be spoiled. Quilt is much better than this picture shows. I've gotta redo my bass pictures.

    i finally bit the bullet, and ordered a Bob Glaub for moi. didnt feel like waiting 6 months for a Sad, and while i was at first quoted a 3-5 month wait, Paul @ Juniors Music, a local shop, said he was able to get a hold of a BG that was cancelled by another dealer.

    SO, i'll be getting my BG in 10 days!!! how freakin' cool is that?

    specs, its the usual suspect w/ tricolor sunburst on alder, rosewood, pickup cover for that oozin' jamerson effect.

    pics, ASAP. ;)
     
  15. Now that's pretty!!

    Could you give us the lowdown on it? Model and such...

    Thanks!

    That appears to be a U.S.-made 5-string Joe Osborn bass with optional J-Retro preamp.
