The LAKLAND Porn Thread

Recommended Posts

Seeing as how I've just acquired a Lakkie I think it's about time we pulled them all together on one thread. :)

Humble I know but I'll start it off with my Lakland Skyline JO4

This bass retired my Wal, Stingray 5 and Fender about 10 mins after I brought it, nearly 9 years ago.

Well, that is just dreamy. Imagine it with blocks on the fingerboard.

Thanks.

I'd love to hear it in action myself but the band I planned to use it with lost the drummer, had to recruit another and so took a break as soon as I got the Decade. No gig with that band now until June.

So although I have rehearsed with it I haven't yet played it in anger, so to speak. But wide range of sounds available due to the placement of the pickups I guess. Does a great sort of Gibsonesque dub sound on the neck pickup soloed with tone rolled off and played at the neck. And a not quite Jazz but nonetheless Jazzesque growl with the bridge pickup soloed and tone on full. Plus lots in between.

Also, very good balance across the strings and smoothness of sound up and down the excellent plekked neck.

EDIT: I think the mahogany body does something to the tone as well, a kind of darkness.

Never mind the bass, that's some great panelling. I'd love to have an original panelled room at home.
