Had this originally listed for trade, then added a sale price and other information later on. Figured I'd take a shot at making a single post with all the details in one spot for clarity's sake.
Looking to sell or trade my Korean made 2004 Lakland 55-02 with original Bartolini pickups and preamp. This is the standard model (i.e. no fancy top) with what appears to be an ash body and rosewood fretboard. Comes in a slightly worn Roadrunner hardshell case, and has Ernie Ball strakloks installed. Bass weighs in at 9 pounds, 1 ounce on my postal scale.
Plays and sounds great, excellent shape with some light player wear, but nothing I could get pictures of. The only flaw is that the tab used to open the battery compartment is broken. This is only an issue when you go to switch the battery, and the compartment opens using a small screwdriver.
Open to trades or sale. Sale price is $825 plus shipping FIRM to a confirmed paypal address in the continental US. To estimate shipping by your carrier of choice use box dimensions 5x17x6, with a weight of 25 pounds, although the actual should be a little less. For reference looks like shipping Boston is around $25 via FedEx, Nashville would be about $30-35, etc. International shipping is fine if buyer pays costs. Trades are still open to just about anything - basses, cabs, amps.
Here's a soundclip showing some of the 55-02's various sounds. Everything used flat EQ on the 55-02, and a relatively flat EQ on the TH500 which I used as a DI. Pickup settings are (in order):
both pickups on with bridge favored slightly, and switch set to 70's position
both pickups on with bridge favored slightly, and switch set to 60's position
neck pickup full on, and
bridge pickup full on with switch set to hum bucker (a la Stingray)
