Lane Poor bass

I worked with him also in 1993 as a pickup winder and apprentice, I may hold on to that bass if i were you, the pickups alone are demanding $500 by themselves if their the early hand sighned ones, I actually have the only prototype pickup developed for a guitar in full humbucking size. Any poor bass is considered a classic today. if you wish to sell it let me know after lenny has a grab at it. NOTE any bass bearing the serial number 001 thru 022 should be considered stolen and properly returned to Lane ~sIXx~

Lane Poor Base Serial # 20

What I just read about any of Lane's basses between serial number 001 thru 022 are stolen, are just not completely so. I was Lane's first commercial sale of a base. He made it to my custom spec's somewhat. The serial # is #20. At that point, all lower numbered bass's were shop prototypes. Lane and I went over that quite completely, because I wanted serial #1. He didn't budge, LOL.

leave lane alone!!!!!!

my name is joe , i was an apprentist with lane in 1992-94,he was not a thift nor did he steal from his people. lane is a very dedicated person in the 'r&d' feild.if anyone lost anything in the company well than thats the chance you take in investing. no one bitchin about lost stock money on wall street ,let it go. if you lost anything than so did lane.i personaly saw him throw every thing he had into the cause. ive seen him help people without asking for anything in return.if you were lucky enough to be on the inside than you know what im talkin about.every one who spent time at that shop left with a gift of talant that could not be bought or taught.you expirenced it from THE MASTER of the craft. lane never stole from investers,if he owes anything to anyone its himself.personally i never charge anyone to pro set up an axe nor do i charge to do minor repair becuse i give it back if you will.now let lane be free and stop wondering where he is he knows what he it doing.-jo mama

Re: leave lane alone!!!!!!

I apprenticed with Lane in 15 years ago and i still hold his lessons very very dear. He had a way of teaching, more like coaxing logic from you, a way to find a correct path to a solution yourself. I bothered him for years prior to working for him, even to just sweep his floor and i finally wore him down. My time spent in the shop was the absolute highlight of my youth. Is he perfect? - no. Is he organized? - no. But that's what you get when you have the opportunity to work side by side with a genius - an eccentric who is easily very kind, open, brilliant and giving. If he misled anyone, it was himself, in thinking he could make everyone happy at the same time. He took on too much. Everyone wanted a piece of him. Again, he may not be fiscally perfect,but someone please tell me who is perfect in just one way - just one? Maybe some people lost money but I'm quite sure he lost so much more and people have conveniently forgotten this. He did the best he could. That's enough for me and should be enough for anyone who ever had the chance to deal with a person like him.If there is any bitterness left out there, grow up enough to let things go and look at the bigger picture and see where that takes you. Wake up.

Re: leave lane alone!!!!!!

I agree. Lane is a great guy and always helped me fix my guitars when I was a kid. Amazing builder and a great guy.

Sometimes business fail. It sucks but it's the way of the world.

I know Fender tried to buy him out in the late 80s/early 90s when they bought Kubicki and I believe Ken Parker ripped off some of what he was doing.

Lane is a great friend and a great builder.

HEY Noah, i remember you

HEY Noah, i remember you well, i belive we made a special set of gold top pickups for you, great words you have said about lane,,great to see of you again and i hop all is well

Lane Poor Crook and Thief

Lane Poor was and is a crook and a thief. He stole from his family, he stole from his employees, he stole from his customers.

I heard that he sold 300% of the stock in the company to anyone who whould but it and he had many people chasing him.

I would be suprised if he did not get his legs broken and was living in a ditch.

Beware Lane Poor

Mike

Re: Lane Poor Crook and Thief

Mike,

I don't know where you get your information but my dad invested money with Lane Poor when I was a kid in the 80s.

When I was at Berklee he sold it (1995 I believe) back to Lane with no issues.

Lane is a great guy and an amazing designer. He taught me more about guitars then anyone else and as a 12 - 17 year old kid he would let me come to his factory and bother him and all the other people that worked there.

Why don't you post your identity. It must be sad to be so pathetic that you have to hide on a message board.

I have two basses and three acoustic pickups. My friend Keith has the only black 5 string fretless Lane made.

Screw all of you on here. I have my email address up here - a real one not some free one - grow a set.

Lane Poor

Kudos to all of you sticking up for Lane Poor-a gentleman and a genius in R and D. He made the best bass pickups I've ever used and those are in my Brubaker 5 string Bass Kevin Brubaker was friends with Lane and told me a little about him and his unfortunate health problems. I don't like the word hate but I absolutely will use it to say I hate all you haters out there who obviously don't have a fucking clue what you are talking about-I'm a pro musician, a female guitar tech, and I love Lane Poor pickups. You assholes need to find a life -it's not often-I don't think ever ...have I used this kind of language online but I find it to be warranted and for those out there who are too chicken shit to post your name -f-you and may the Gods of Karma treat you as you have treated others and shame on me for even letting you cause me to have bad karma over this - I should know better-but think about the people you are hurting over this-his family and friends have feelings and were just trying to continue to give the public what they wanted when Lane was unable to continue on.

Re: Lane Poor Crook and Thief

How can we give a damn s**t about this if Lane poor had awesome pickups!!
I have a lane poor now, and I'm sooo happy with it!!

Modulus Lane Poor pickup

Hello,

I believe you are looking for a Lane Poor pickup

Well, I now have one which I'm not in use anymore, I took it out of a 1997 Modulus Flea, it DOES have the Modulus logo on it, NOT the LP logo, it's in great shape, and working perfectly

Let me know if you're interested, I can send you pictures, and knowing how rare it is, let me know how much you are willing to pay for it :)

Best regards
Elie

Lane Poor Sighting

I was at Ray Mullins Music last Fri [Swansea Mass] and was told Lane had come in that very morning. He's supposed to be working on some new project. I got this from one of the young salesmen there that I know so it's legit. As for what the project is I am not sure but he's around. As for his shop I don't really know. So I thought I'd give a shout that Lane is around the Swansea/Fall River area and is apparently busy on something.

Hope this helps at least some of you. I know there are people here looking for him for reasons of money and or work that is/was to be done. I wish I had answers.

Bob

Re: Lane Poor Sighting

i Was At Ray Mullin today,jan 20-07,& guess who Was there,Lane Poor Himself,He was very cool to talk with,& he Even Set Up My usa Dean Cadillac,While I was There,he was lookin for an acoustic for his grand daughter,I do Remember The Shop In Fall River,& Knew someone That Worked there,he looks like he is in Good health & spirits,he is an excentric fellow,but nice to talk to,

Lane Poor missing?

I knew Lane a little. Back in the late 80's his painter Chris layed down a sweet paint job on my Gibson Explorer. I worked in Fall River Mass so I'd go there after work and harrass them all the time.

I go by the mill where the shop was often and the small round sign is still up though it is in need of a paint job. Out of bussiness eh? I may get a TALL ladder and snag that sign off the building.

Lane was always cool and the shop had such a cool vibe. It's a shame he wishes to stay hidden. Perhaps something heavy happened?

Hope he's well.

Re: Lane Poor missing?

He is still around. Not in Durfee Union anymore. Contact me for more info.

Re: it does not answer me Ron the mails

Hello,

This company went out of business back in 1999. They no longer exist so you will not get your pickups. I hope you did not send cash. If you sent a check, it should not be cashed, and if you sent a money order, then go get a refund with your reciept.

Just to let you know, I am not with the company, I just found out that they went out of business when I was looking for Lane Poor pickups.

God bless,
Joe <><

Re: That it passes with Lane Poor?

Dear Raul:
I went by Lane Poor's shop tonight, February 23, 2001. I've tried a few times and haven't been able to find him during his regular business hours. Web page is down and he hasn't returned phonecalls. People that I know, who do business with him regularly haven't heard from him in a while -- over 3 months. I am looking for pickups myself and wish you luck. If I do see him, I will let him know that people are looking for product.

Re: Searching for Lane Poor?

Michael,
Becky Lawrence is searching for him also.
Look at the catch-gate section of the Fender Info Board.
You can get there at http://www.nocaster.com (top link) or at http://pub66.ezboard.com/bguitarsbyfender

She would probably appreciate an email - I will cross link this post there.

Re: That it passes with Lane Poor?

HI,
