  1. I know nothing of the bass but by the looks of those bridge saddles it'll need the intonation looking at 😁
  2. They're not cheap Andy. I priced them up years ago, if I remember right it wasn't much change from two hundred quid for both. Still have Yamaha UK's number in my phone if you want it.
  3. The two that got away. Really wish I hadn't let them go, both exceptional instruments.
  4. I bought mine new & if I remember correctly Guitar Guitar only had black & sunburst at the time. They have a few others now tho.
  5. Agreed, I avoided them on the Stingray for some daft reason but they do work really well & feel great!
  6. Stunning collection & I have to agree with Reggae, that white one is gorgeous!
  7. Anyone else using flats on their Ray? I recently strung mine with Cobalt's & I'm really enjoying it!
  8. Bet that sounds f'kin awesome!
  9. Thanks Chris, I couldn't cite it but I do remember him saying it somewhere. Both of my Skyline's are brilliant instruments but they are the only Lakland experience I have so I'm sure there may be less than perfect examples out there.
  10. Out of curiosity Si, how do the US&A models compare to Skyline's? I've never had the pleasure of an American one but I'm sure Dan Lakin once said somewhere on internet land that if someone's not too fussed about figured woods & fancy colours "buy a skyline". Testiment to the quality of his brand I'd say.
  11. That is sweet! If it had an extra string I might be all over it! There's a nice purple 55=02 in Guitar Guitar at the minute with the ebony board. I keep looking at it but always talk myself out of it.
  12. Did someone say Cream? With Big Singles? You won't be disappointed!
  13. Totally agree, unfortunately tho it's only ever fretless ebony Laklands I see on sale here.
  14. I'm in, I have two Skyline's & if one of these with the ebony board ever turns up on the UK market I'll have three 😁
  15. Apologies to the green party but surely it has to be LPB! Green should be reserved only for nature & tanks. How about one of those new trendy matte finishes?
  16. Raise the saddles a bit & see where you are. I wouldn't worry about anything shim related until I'd tried everything else.
  17. The J pickup poles on my BB350 are the same. I'm thinking of taking it apart to see if they're mounted in wax. That way I might be able to manipulate them to fit flush with the cover.
  18. Yeah it still is, or at least was with both of mine!
  19. I bought a Lakland from Guitar Guitar Birmingham online (risky I know) & it arrived really nicely set up but this could've been done by Lakland. When it arrived I was convinced they'd sent me the wrong thing as the box (& bass) was stupidly light 😁
  20. There was a member here who had a BBG5 with RBX humbucker's in it. I remember it looking quite sweet. Edit* George Byrne maybe?
  21. Me too Andy, I'm still astounded at the quality of Yamaha's 'budget' basses. I was considering refinishing it but I'm actually liking the honesty of the battle scars. I will completely re-do the neck at some point though. The fretboard could do with sanding down a bit & the frets are a bit flat for my liking but all in all its ninety quid well spent!
