FS Lakland Skyline 55-AJ
Hard decision but putting my Lakland up for sale to finance some stuff. This is a newer Lakland Skyline 55-AJ, which is Skylines answer to an active 5 string Jazz bass. Loaded with Laklands Vintage Wound jazz pickups and the Bartolini MK-1 preamp. It only comes in black or red flamed maple top with an ash back, this one is red and absolutely stunning. There is a finish scuff under the b string between the pups and some scuffing in the typical slap player area just under the G string. It sounds fantastic, fills the room great, all the best active jazz bass qualities with a wide spaced 35 inch rosewood on maple neck. There are some hairline scratches and such on the back too light for photos, but no major divets/dings/gouges to speak of.
I'll be loading pics tomorrow, asking 900 shipped CONUS, through paypal, with a Lakland hard case. Offers are certainly welcome but no trades, thanks!

This is a sweet deal on a great bass. Laklands are bang for buck one the best deals out there!!!

I have it a little over 9 pounds on the ol bathroom scale. Balances really well when strapped on IMHO.
I'm used to seeing barts with covered pole pieces and the logo on the cover...
what's the control layout?
|5stringthumpin ||02-17-2014 08:45 AM |
Controls are volume, blend, mids, and stacked treble/bass.

I was just notified by a fellow TB'er and some research that the pups are actually laklands own Vintage Wound Jazz bass pickups, not Bart's. The preamp is indeed the MK-1. I will change the listing accordingly. Sorry for the mix up folks. She still punches like a prize fighter, to the point where I'm still on the fence about selling...but make me an offer, let's see what happens.
thanks for the update; do you know of those are single coil or hum cancelling of some sort?

The pick ups are single coil. I have used this bass through my Markbass set up as well as my Ampeg SVT-CL and it has proven very quiet and clear with both rigs.
