About three weeks ago I recieved my new Lakland 55-02, black with rosewood fretboard and bassline pickups. I took it out of the box and tuned it up and I've been playing it a lot. I swear to you I have not had to tune it since the first tuning. I've done gigs, and had band practises and all that and the bass will not go out of tune. Good for me. I'm amazed.
