    First lakland and first post. It arrived today perfectly set up and in tune with a set of 130-45 Rotosounds. First 35" scale and I'm not having any issues adjusting to the extra scale and oh does that B sound good.

    Already planning on getting an LH3 preamp and a Nordstrand Dual cool for bridge and thier new Big Rig for the neck pickup.

    Thanks guys! I'm headed out to a couple jams this week, starting tonight, and gonna put this thing through the paces. Next full band gig is weekend after next so I'll have some time to fall into this bass a bit before hitting the stage.

    Very nice. Welcome. You will find very knowledgeable people here.

    Thanks everyone for the kudos and the welcome! First Lakland...first 35" bass... and honestly the first 5 that I haven't tuned E-C. Lol. Really enjoying the bass so far. Construction is tops. Finish, for a 14yo bass, is killer! The electronics are great for now, but like everyone else with an -01, I've looked at a new pre. Very excited about growing old with this bass.

    Well I ordered a new pre, Nordstrand 3band with passive tone, so I figured I'd get a new pair of Big Splits for my 55-01. Looking forward to getting the in and installed. Also have a ramp and some knobs coming in figured walnut!!

    Looks great! Can't go wrong with 3tsb and a rosewood board. Congrats! Mine is from '02 and still looks great, a testament to Lakland quality.
