    Well. I've done it again. Started too many projects that I shouldn't have.

    First up is a one of a kind Lakland 5501(Frost Green Metallic)

    I just finished putting it together. It is a beast!
    The Aguilar Super singles are ridiculous!!!

    35" scale
    19mm spacing at bridge
    Just under 9.5 pounds
    Frost Green Metallic
    Maple fingerboard
    Aguilar OBP3 preamp (9v)
    Controls are vol (push/pull-active/passive), blend, bass, mid (push/pull for frequency),treble
    Aguilar Super Single pickups
    Rolled fingerboard edges and fret ends.
    Will ship in a hard case.

    There are a few small marks on the body. The worst is a small piece of the paint that lifted by the bridge pickup. It's been reset.
    Secondly, there is a small scratch between two of the string ferrules on the back and one indentation the size of a pencil point near the end strap button.
    Please see the pics for reference.

    $750 shipped (lower US48) SOLD!!!


    Next up is a really cool and rare Made is Japan Fernandes 5 string jazz. Great condition. No chips or dings.

    Kind of a Blue Green Metallic, if you will.
    34" scale
    18mm at the bridge
    About 9 pounds (probably a little lighter)
    Rosewood fingerboard
    Hipshot USA tuners
    Passive w/ Bacchus control plate.
    Vol/Vol/Tone with a "turbo" feature.
    When the tone knob is pulled up it puts the pickups into series which adds quite a bit of meat to the tone.
    Carvin J99a pickups (from an SB bass)
    Will ship in a new basic gigbag.

    $450 OBO shipped (lower US48)
    Again, please see pics for reference.

    It was painted by the guys over at guitarpaintguys.com
    I've been impressed with their work. This is the second bass I had painted by them.

    Wow that Lakland is amazing! great price. Does it have a matching headstock or other pickguards? I'm guessing not but any trade interests?
