I have a 2004 Lakland Skyline 55-02, in 3TSB, with a rosewood board and the original USA Bartolini pickups and electronics. Bass is in great shape, some light wear but nothing I could capture in pictures. The only issue is that the battery compartment cover is broken - it stays in place but has to be opened using a screwdriver. The setup is nice and low - very easy to play.
It's a great sounding and playing bass, I just play my '02 Skyline Glaub most of the time, and am struggling to adjust to the wider spacing and longer scale of the 55-02.
Open to pretty much anything in trade - basses/amps/cabs. I do tend to prefer Fender style instruments (Fender/MM/G&L) but I'll throw that out the window for something cool. Willing to sell for $900 shipped in the continental US OBO.
Thinking in the 900-950 range, which seems to be the going value for these. Could go lower for something really cool or local.
I should have mentioned this in the OP, but I'm less interested in Precisions and black basses. Still open to offers that fit that description, but I may be less likely to say yes since I have a very nice black P-bass at home.
Edit: I'd also be willing to consider adding my '02 Black/Maple Lakland Skyline Glaub or maybe even my classic black Aguilar DB112 with Aggie cover, if somebody wants to go totally crazy with a trade. Local is better for something like that.

Reason: "Way out there" trade scenario.
I've had some interesting offers, but nothing that's really hit the right spot for me.
Some ideas (not an inclusive list at all)...
- Music Man (any model, have a little cash to throw in towards a Big Al SSS)
- Jazz basses
- G&L's (especially hog bodies)
- Epi Jack Casady or Allen Woody
- I'd still love to try out an Alien Audio bass, especially if its a double p. Could throw in some cash towards that as well if necessary.
- Maybe even a Thumb Bolt On
- Or a NS Design NXT electric upright
- Open to anything, the worst I can so is say "no thanks".
