When is the actual release date for the Skyline Decade?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Surprise Panda!, Aug 30, 2008.

  1. I saw on MF it said 9-30-08, but that might just be when they get their shipment.

    Probably a couple months after the actual release date.

    As of last Wednesday, John P of Lakland told us that the end of September is possible but can't be guaranteed - I believe they're still waiting on the bodies to arrive from their overseas factory.
    Those of us who designed/preordered this as the Dudepit Limited Edition III are supposed to be first in line, so when I hear any updates I'll be sure to let TB know.

    I'm waiting for a word and waiting for the one I placed a deposit on slated for December delivery. Perhaps those will be pushed back? sigh. :bawl:
  12. You know what

    A change of heart, the Skyline Hollowbody is where I'm at right now. But, you never know.

    But the hollowbody, the sound the looks!!! I love the bridge pickup (Bartolini I think), I wonder what it sounds like with Chi-Sonics!!! I need to go try one out!!

    Hey fellas -

    "The W a i t i n g is the hardest part"

    I wonder if Tom Petty has to wait for his instruments? Rickenbacker has a huge waiting list for the C64FS's. And WAL? Fuhgettaboutit. What's it been now, 2 years since we put depsoits down on the DPLE III Decade? It looks like an awesome instrument. Hope they arrive soon! Take care all -

    does anyone know if these can still be ordered with the darkstars?
  15. I've played the Lakland Hollowbody for 2-4 set gigs 3 years ago. As far as sound, it's right there in your face, very punchy and articulate for a hollowbody. As far as slap bass goes, I really didn't care for it. It doesn't have any bite when you slap, but def pops loud. I also recall it being a top notch beauty as far as looks and quality go.

    Laklands no longer come with DSs as an "option" ...the Chi is replacing them...however, I bet if you ask "nicely" you can get one (especially in a US model!)

    as for delivery date, BASS Club Chicago shows a November Delivery so I suspsect soon.....there were none in teh shop when I was there yesterday so I assume they are all out in shipment - but more shipments are coming in (due to their popularity!)

    the Skyline Decade and the Natural DJ with black blocks seem to be VERY popular (i.e. Lakland cannot keep them in stock!)

    I had a word from Brian at Lakland and he said that the first shipment are foreseen for the 2nd half of November.... from the above do you mean that the skyline decade might be in store already? if so, anybody played one?

    Have any of these things hit the street yet?

    It would help if Lakland would simply add the Chi-Sonic mp3s to their site (which have been "coming soon" for months), but until then I'm still very curious.
