What an impressive instrument.
This bass just ozzes class, quality, and is a pure working bassist's instrument.
All Darryl Jones basses have matching headstocks, but in this case the headstock has been left in natural. A collector's bass at standard price.
As you know, Darryl Jones is the bass player with that old band...what's their name... The Rolling Stones. Apart from this, Darryl has played with an impressive number of top artist, so he had a clear idea when he designed his sisgature bass with Lakland: tone, tone and more tone (oh well, and some vintage looks as well).
O.K., it is a recreation of a Vintage Fender, like many others, but please note:
1 It is well done. Not only does it look vintage with its matching headstock and block inlays, but it is perfectly built. No dead spots, perfect weight and neck.
2 Soundwise, it delivers a great punchy tone from its Aero passive pickups that is reminiscent of vintage axes. You get that familiar growl that is so hard to find unless you buy a vintage Fender or maybe a Custom Shop instrument that will sell for several grands.
