Here are the first two production versions of the Lee Sklar model. All I can say is that these things sound outrageous!

If anybody owns both the LSS and an other Z bass, please tell how do they compare.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1rfcrhm2]We're running behind on the Sklars - labor and machine scheduling issues. They will go to paint this week and assembly next week.[/quote:1rfcrhm2] Any news on these babies, Sheldon? Hoping for a Xmas present from Saskatoon...:)

[quote="Beepo":17byogzg]Wow! Two LSS'es to Norway in a few weeks :) Where in Norway do you live, EW?[/quote:17byogzg] It's a small world after all. I currently live in Sandnes. After initially ordering a Combustion I changed my mind and went for the LSS after reading about the development of the Combustion, here in the forum for the most part. A lot of the features and details I liked about the Z2 I tried was not making it onto the Combustion, so the change to the LSS was easy to make, although not so easy on my savings perhaps... lol

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":108xdijv][quote="Mudville Stomper":108xdijv]mmmmmmmm inca silver? man, i bet even a gold one would look sweet.[/quote:108xdijv] Hmnnn...[/quote:108xdijv] Wow, these look great. I noticed the painted bodies on the Z group shot thread and was going to ask about them, but I got distracted. I'd love to see one of these in Bronze Age. Mark

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1asqb2ib][quote="Bocete":1asqb2ib]One thing regarding the photographs - both body shots and the blue whole-bass shot reflect some weird light on the arm rest in the body, above the pickups. It looks as if the body had a line carved into it before painting. Moving some lights should do the trick, I guess.[/quote:1asqb2ib] You must be a photographer :D Thats the dividing line between the wall and ceiling of our photo booth. I'll have to figure out how to fix that.[/quote:1asqb2ib] I'm no photographer :) I thought that the line was between two different sources of light. Rounding the edges and the corners of the boots should do the trick. Making the walls/roof of the booth spherical should create a perfect environment, though. That way you could throw light directly into the "dome" to create environment light, and than experiment with other light sources thrown at the bass for reflecive light. My terminology is probably way off :lol:

[quote="TheGrandEnigma":2jkyz3cp]WOW! Those things look sweet! What's the difference between the Lee Sklar signature and the normal Z2 aside from the PU switching?[/quote:2jkyz3cp] The Lee Sklar body is half Northern Ash, half Alder, there is a thumb hole to make removing the control plate easier (Lee's input). The pickups are pre-wired in series, the mid select is pre-set to 250 Hz and the rotary switch is point-to-point wired for bridge, parallel, neck, series as per Lee's personal preferences.
