Inspired by Donald “Duck” Dunn

What you say about Duck Dunn? One of the all-time greats. Held down the bottom at Stax records for over a decade.

I met Duck in 1999 when he was preparing to go out with CSN&Y. He could not have been nicer. Bob Glaub introduced me well were bringing out the Bob Glaub model. Soon we decided to do a signature model for Duck as well. For many years Duck used an early 60-‘s P Candy Apple red P bass with a ’66 or 67 J neck. This is what we did then and are doing now.

Duck was a pleasure to work with. He was very loyal to us. When on tour with Neil Young, Neil asked him to use his ’58 P. He felt awful about it. But he did use a Bob Glaub model on Saturday night live. It was just him and Neil – how cool! I have the footage somewhere, I’ll try to get it up on the website soon.

This take on the Lakland “Duck Dunn” is done with the cooperation of Duck’s son Jeff and Mom, June. It includes a copy of “Soul Fingers”, a great book about Duck with many transcriptions of Ducks greatest recording, a duck, sticker, and more…
