I’m loving this bass. I actually considered an American Fender, as it’s nearly the same price, but I dig the Lakland vibe as well as the jazz bass neck. Superb setup, lightweight, and very sharp looking. This has the neopunch pickups; the Lakland website isn’t clear as to which pickup is used, but the pole pieces looked different and Brian from Lakland confirmed that it is indeed loaded with the neopunch’s.

I need to get a set of flats on this. Also, I think this thing would look sweet with a red tort guard. Where can I get one for it? Jeannies?

I've got a NeoPunch in my Lakie. Superb pickup, IMO.

Congrats on a sweet looking bass!

I can’t wait to gig this bass. I’ve made it my own by putting TI flats on it, as well as swapping out the stock white guard in favor of a red tort one. Just an FYI, while swapping out the PG, I noticed Alpha pots.

[smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]Nice Tom, I've always loved the Duck. Pearl Blocks and binding. Matching CAR headstock. What's not to like. [smilie=food-smiley-004.gif]

But I Love the Red on Red. LOVE IT! Don't recall ever seeing anyone do that.

I have a CAR HB with a white pearl p/g that might be needing a replacement [smilie=coz.gif]
