    USA Lakland necks are, IMO, the absolute best on the planet.

    Good golly! What a specimen. Do you have any data on the nut width and weight on this dreamboat?

    IIRC, the nut width on a Lackie Decade is 1.5".

  6. As far as I know - necs are identical to Joe Osborn (44-60) necks.

    Yes, it's 1.5" at the nut and 8.5 lbs weighed with me on a digital bathroom scale.

    Oh boy.

    I owned this bass for YEARS (I’m probably responsible for those dings). This one is amazing, and has one of the best necks out there. It tracks phenomenally in the studio, is light & resonant, AND the solo’ed bridge pickup is arguably the best I’ve ever heard. It rules.

    Plus: OG Hammon Darkstars!!!

    Seriously, don’t sleep on this one or it’ll haunt you. I’d buy it back in a heartbeat if I was in a position to.

    If you’ve never played a Decade, and you’re on the fence, do it. Especially with these pickups. This is a steal.
     
  13. What is the serial number of the bass? Thanks.

    I feel the same way but was afraid to ask. Haha! I haven’t played the lottery in awhile but might buy a ticket tomorrow. If I by chance win big this weekend, I’ll buy us all US made Lakland Decade basses with Darkstar pickups! And I’ll have to buy a time machine, too, I guess because these don’t just appear here every day. I’m needing everyone’s support on this if that’s not asking too much

    I must say my limit is usually 1k. This would be a rare exception. Beautiful bass.
