FS: Lakland Skyline Bob Glaub MIK with extras - cheap!
*SOLD* Up for sale is a Lakland Skyline Bob Glaub Precision, black with rosewood board and tort guard. Made in Korea with a 2008 serial number. I picked this one up from a local Craigslist seller, but I already own 2 P-basses and don't really need to keep it.
Overall, she's in good shape, but if you don't mind some honest player wear and "mojo," this is the P for you! The previous owner was obviously a heavy pick player, and you can definitely see some finish swirling/etching near the upper horn. There's also a pretty good amount of buckle rash on the back, but nothing that goes through to the wood. When I got it home, I spent a couple hours cleaning it up (cleaned/oiled fretboard, polishing, etc.), and aside from the scratches and dings, it looks pretty good. It was hard to get the imperfections to show up in pics (it's black, after all). There are only a couple noticeable finish dings on the front, but none that go into the wood
The neck is fairly clean, but it has some scratches and dings along the back. I played it at home, and they didn't bother me. Nothing too major, and the headstock is pretty clean.
There are a few mods to mention:
-The pickguard is missing 4 screws. The PG was also drilled for a pickup cover, and I'm fairly certain those holes go into the body. The previous owner added a thumb rest, and I believe those screws are also drilled into the body.
-The knobs have been replaced with some smaller silver ones with a tort cap to match the PG.
-The strap buttons have been replaced with Schaller straplock buttons. The previous owner did a bit of a sloppy job with this (they apparently used some sort of glue/epoxy to hold them in place), but it's not noticeable until you get close.
Weight is 9.5 lbs on my digital luggage scale, and this one has the 1.75 nut width. I believe it has the Hanson Neo-Punch pickup (it has the red/black wires).
I'm also throwing in a really nice Levy's leather strap - it's wide width, and it already has the chrome Schaller straplock ends installed. I'll ship with a basic Fender gig bag.
Asking $650 shipped in the CONUS via PayPal. No trades. Any questions, please PM and I'll get back to you ASAP. I can also provide more pics on request.
