Lakland Skyline Hollowbody Three-Tone Sunburst

I order one of these and it was the smartest buy I have made in a long time. I received it in 3 days with was very cool. I unpacked it and it was amazing. It was in tune when I got it I was surprised. I just happen to have a small gaged the same night so I thought what the heck I will take it. The sound of this bass is awesome a very deep rich tone, I just didn't want to put it down. I played it that night using my MarkBass Jeff Berlin combo 15 with a 210 cab. The neck is very nice and a pleasure to play the frets are very well dressed out of the factory. The only thing I will change on it, and thats just me, I will put flat wound strings on it. The Chil Sonic pickups I guess they called them can produce an amazing range of sounds. This bass is so cool, I don't think I will need all my basses. And for being a Hollow Body , I expected it to be a little neck heavy, but not all. If you are looking for a Hollow Body bass this would be an excellent choice. But order the case with it, cause it has a shape of its own. It would not fit any bass cases i already had, so I am very happy I listen to Ben and purchase one. Every bass player should have this bass in their collection, this will probably I am sure be my main giging and bass i use at church. And as always the fine people at Sweetwater were wonderful, the people there know their stuff very well, and awesome to help, and my favorite person Ben. With Sweetwater Music you will never lose never just dang good people and a place to buy.I live a little north of Austin Texas and there are a bunch of Music stores< I live maybe 15 to 20 minutes from a GC store, they never seem to have what I want. Then they 90% of the time tell me well we can order it for you. Well i just tell them so can I from Sweetwater music and I do. Again a super nice bass, just the sound I was looking for. I heard a guy say they sound like a stand up bass, honest maybe in the ball park, it does have that deep rich sound. This bass will make the ladies dance oh yes it will , it did it the other night. And again thank you Sweetwater, Since I been listening to use Guys, I have been making a lot better music.
