Custom Lakland Skyline Decade w/ 3 Chi-Sonic pickups

All -

I would like to find a new home for my Lakland Skyline Decade, purchased in Feb from a fellow TB'er - pictures of the bass and more info are in his thread - Custom Lakland Skyline Decade!!! Chi Sonic goodness!!!

A former owner had Lakland install a third Chi-Sonic pickup.
This bass is awesome and the extra pickup really add extra dimensions to the Skyline sound - it is passive wired vol, vol, vol, tone. It has a fast neck and is in fantastic condition.

It has never left my smoke-free house. Comes with a Lakland gig bag. I love everything about it except that I have had to admit that I can no longer comfortably play full-scale basses.

Looking to sell for $1000 shipped in the lower 48!

Not trying to make you change your mind...but you can get a US Lakland custom short scale neck for that pup

won't EXACTLY be cheap...but you won't find another decade like that...

This bass looks awesome. What's the nut width? If it has a p bass style neck on it consider it sold.

Damn. Jazz width is not my thing. Best of luck with the sale. That is a sweet looking bass.

Are the Chi-Sonics in this bass single coils or humbuckers?

Pictures don't do it justice

A big thumbs up to a great seller. I played this the other day and this bass has one of the smoothest necks I've ever played. No clacks, buzz and looks beautiful. I wish I had the bucks.
