    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.

    Is the switch parallel/serial or active/passive.

    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.
