I really hope that the demand for Barker basses increases to the point that Mr. Barker would have to outsource parts such as, for example, Lakland, in order to have high-quality products at lower prices. A "Skyline" version of Barker Basses would be incredible!! A setup such as Lakland's where the parts are already assembled, but undergo an extensive check-up and inspection before shipment to stores/customers would keep up the high-quality and good name of these basses. I wish I could get one of these, as I know it would help with not only wrist tension but the shoulder pain I get from having a bass strapped on. I just need some far-off millionaire relative to kick the bucket and leave me some money! Man, I'd love one of these beautiful basses. I can't wait to try one!
