This does hurt a bit, but I just got my hands on a new, old stock US Peavey Millenium J/MM...so, I must part with my first Lakland (it won't be the last). This is the same bass from this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/ft-fs-lakland-44-02-a-838366/ It still plays like butter, has an upgraded bone nut and weighs 8.4lb. I also still have the extra brown tortoise shell pick guard. It may have a few more small dings. I took some overexposed pics out in the sun that make them much more noticeable than they actually are. I replaced the three-way pickup switch and had it checked out and professionally setup a few months ago. The action can go LOW. Stupid low. I just put some new super slinky's on it. $700 shipped CONUS in a soft gig bag.
