    LAGUNA GUITARS LAUNCHES "ONE GUITAR, ONE TREE" REFORESTATION INITIATIVE

    Laguna Guitars, reflecting the passionate convictions of musicians, celebrates Earth Day by launching their new "One Guitar, One Tree" reforestation initiative. This plan involves planting one tree for every Laguna guitar made. In addition, Laguna continues to deepen its other practical efforts to reduce waste, recycle and conserve the planet's resources.

    For decades, musicians have proudly been socially aware and urged others to take more action, advocacy and awareness in environmental matters. As musicians themselves, those at Laguna have always passionately supported that position, knowing that trees are an economical, long-term solution to many tough environmental problems, including air and water pollution, climate change, wildlife protection, habitat restoration and more. In partnership with AmericanForests.org and their Global Relief campaign, Laguna proudly plants a tree for each Laguna guitar made.

    In addition, Laguna's shipping cartons are designed to provide maximum protection with a minimum of material. Their boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard that is also 100% recyclable, which they naturally encourage wherever possible. Also, in the interests of conservation, they have decided not to print glossy, heavyweight catalogs as millions from various companies end up in landfills every year. Instead, Laguna provides extensive information online at their website (www.playlaguna.com) and a catalog will soon be available as downloadable PDF's, allowing users to print only those pages they want.

    As with the design and manufacture of their guitars, Laguna welcomes an open dialogue with musicians and encourages them to share their thoughts and ideas on environmental matters including Laguna's "One Guitar, One Tree" initiative and other earth-friendly plans. All such feedback can be directed to environment@playlaguna.com. Please visit PlayLaguna.com or AmericanForests.org for more information on the "One Guitar, One Tree" initiative and Global Relief campaign.

    This bass rules!

    By Johnnystt

    from Oneida, Wisconsin

    I walked into the music store with the intention of buying a schecter 5 string. I happened to look up on the back wall and saw a Laguna 5 string and decided to play it side by side with the schecter. I was amazed at the tone and the feel of this bass. So much in fact I bought the Laguna instead. I still have a hard time putting it down. I would recommend this bass to anybody.

    Cant Stay Away From The Ocean

    By KingofStrings

    from Baltimore

    Not to much to say about this bass besides the fact that it is awesome. The neck on this bad boy is so smooth its rediculous, this bass just plays so well i can not get over it. Great for slapping and popping and its also great just for a melodic bass line it doesnt matter this ocean is very versatile. the strings that came with it were somewhat dead so i had to throw some super slinkys on there and i can not stop playin the bass. O yea, the knobs help u get alot of different tone to. Ive played music mans and ive played warwicks, and ive played fender but nothing comes even close to the value of the bass and i like playing this more then a sting ray honestly. Its great!

    The Ocean is hot

    By WillTheQuest

    from New York City, NY

    I was looking for a new bass for recordings. We we're currently using a Jazz Fender for most of our records, but when I went out to purchase a new bass The Ocean had better tone and finish than the Warwicks and even the Marcus Miller I played. Since I've brought the bass in the studio we haven't tracked with anything else, its so versatile its all you need really.

    Budget.....

    By Richard M.

    from Nashville, TN

    I walked into the guitar store knowing exactly how much money I could spend....and sure enough, this guitar was it (my bank account had 4 dollars left in it). Man this thing plays so smooth and the tones that come from it are absolutely phenominal. I don't care how much money I ever make in my life, this bass is what I'll be playing 15-20 years from now.

    Amazing Instrument

    By Dude!

    from Mass.

    Today, I picked this bass up at my music store and was amazed. This Thing looks beautiful, and plays great. The body is smooth and the Neck-Thru body has great sustain. It has great action, and the active electronics sound amazing for standard fingering, and slapping and popping. I highly reccomend this bass for those of you who want a Warwick or Music man, but can't afford it. Soon, I'm gonna be buying one myself.
