I got a Lakland yesterday... A 55-01 in Cherryburst. Maple F/B. I'll post pics later. I really had some time to kill today, so I gave this thing a killer low setup, and jammed with it. It's got a sound I used to hate, but I really love it now. Any sound this thing makes is perfect. I really hope this isn't the "WOW" period in having a new bass... I just haven't seen any gripes i have with it. It plays beautifully, low action, no fretbuzz, lots of tension, which is EXACTLY the way I like it. The Fishman Pre is really versatile, and has a huge range of sounds. I jammed with it in 2 situations today, and it sat PERFECT in the mix. It's got a great "Not so trebly, but defined/not muddy" sound to it that I absoultely love. I would recommend this thing to absoultely everyone. Does anyone else feel this way about their Laklands?
