    I'm offering for sale my Lakland 4-94, which was my main player from the beginning of 2009 when I got it until early 2013, when I decided to switch to primarily 6-string and double bass. This is an amazing bass that plays well, sounds great, and is just beautiful. In fact, it's such an attractive bass that the Lakland folks made a point of emailing me about how striking it was when I sent it in for the LH-3 updgrade.

    A few specs:

    - US Made in 2005 (SN #745)
    - Flame maple top
    - Birdseye maple fingerboard
    - Ash body
    - Quarter-sawn hard maple neck
    - 19mm bridge spacing
    - 34" scale
    - neck profile is somewhere between J and P. My experience with it has been smooth and fast
    - new pickups and preamp (I sent it to Lakland in 2010 to replace the Bartolinis with the newer LH-3 preamp and custom pickups)
    - D-tuner
    - Shipped in the original hardshell case
    - Currently wearing GHS Medium Progressives

    Overall, this bass is in great condition. There are a few small scrapes on the top of the headstock (shown in photos), but otherwise, this instrument is in nearly mint condition.

    This is a great player with lots tonal flexibility. I'm selling because this bass is not getting the play time it deserves.

    Asking $1950 shipped CONUS.

    I get about 8 lb, 8oz on the old kitchen scale. This lines up nicely with playing, as the bass has always felt light and nimble.

    Thanks guys! The top and fingerboard are even more stunning in person.

    In terms of the switch, it's a 3-way that controls coil tap for the rear MM-style pickup.
    Center = both coils (standard MM setup)
    Back = rear coil (to cop an aggressive 70's style J-bass feel)
    Forward = front coil (to cop a somewhat mellower 60's style J-bass feel)

    The volume knob is push/pull, with the IN position engaging the preamp and the OUT position being passive. Right now, I have the preamp gain dialed-in so that the volume in both modes is about equal.

    Fantastic bass. Didn't want to look because I knew it would create GAS pains

    Bump for a great bass! I have a 4-94D and this is the swiss army knife of basses with one of the sweetest necks around.
