Think I've got the neck straightened out. It came from Philly to LA and the weather was too much. Neck was backbent when it got here. I've now got it adjusted pretty well, and I'll do some fine tuning tomorrow after it's sat overnight again.

It has a HUGE tone, and lots of bite and definition.

Mike do you recall the serial number of yours? And idea how many of them are out there? I mean, I sorta figure this isn't one of the ones owned by Willie himself, but just curious.

I guess you could call my Lakland a 55-63. It's Got 2 Lindy Fralin custom J pups which I can switch from either active to passive. I believe it was one of the last dual J bodies that Dan had. Got it in 04. Its the Best sounding bass I own. Great Cut and excellent balance from high through mid down to a deep low end..

Can see her here on myspaceLakland & Elrick pic
