    Lakland Skyline 55-01 Sunburst

    Late 2010 Indo, Plek'd and shipped in 2011

    Upgraded with Bartolini MK5 pickups and Lakland/Hanson LH3 Preamp. Pups are wired series with a two-position switch between dual coil and single coil (outer coils). The switch is set in the same location as on the 55-02.

    35" Scale
    Comfortable 1.81" width at the nut
    19mm spacing at the bridge

    I don't have a 1/10 lb accurate scale, but this is a lighter one, I believe closer to 9 lbs than in the other direction.

    I have it set up for a few different looks, 55-94/02 knobs, a set of small soft-touch knobs, and a J style pick guard that has a nice friction fit. I set the pick guard up with screw heads, so it looks like it's screwed on (no holes/no adhesive). I'm not a master craftsman, and the job on the faux screws isn't flawless on close inspection.

    The bass is in great shape. The tip of the headstock got a bump that chipped a bit. It's not deep and not apparent from a couple feet away. I tried to take a super close up picture showing the damage.

    Ships in the original packaging.

    $685 plus actual UPS ground from 21045, CONUS, Paypal (to confirmed address)
