    This bass started my Lakland obsession, but I can't get used to the nut width. I'm just a Jazz neck guy apparently, so it gets no play time. The previous owner had Chi-Sonic pickups and an LH3 preamp installed by Pat Wilkins. The finish is a limited edition blue with quilt top, and it weighs in around 9 lbs. using the trusted "bathroom scale" method. It's in amazing condition, and I've only taken it out for a few rehearsals. Otherwise, it sits on a stand in my smoke-free home.

    I'm asking $750 shipped CONUS only, in a Pro-Tec Contego gig bag.

    Trade list includes US Laklands, Sadowsky, Nordstrand, Vintage style Fenders. I'm open to considering anything that is a 4 string with a jazz neck.

    Lakland will sell a direct replacement for a 44-01 with a 1.5 nut? I didn't think that would be an option. I figure a custom neck for a skyline might be a bit of effort and time, but I'll shoot them an email. Still entertaining sale/trade offers in the meantime. Thanks basspraiser!

    I think I found a skyline 44-60 to satisfy me for now. Probably looking for a straight sale now.

    As previous owner of ths bass, I completely vouch for the quality of tone, fit/finnish, and integrity of the seller. Very nice bass bump.

    Sure thing. I got a bit tied up this weekend, but I recorded a few things. I'll try to get them up tonight.

    Thanks, I have to clean some things up myself relative to selling some gear, will be in touch if I can do something. I have two 4401's (fretted / fretless) and love them.

    Looks like I have a trade in the works. My preference is to sell this though, so last day for offers.

    Thanks for letting me know. I'm not close to being able to do anything so good luck with your trade.
