    Up goes my last Korean made Lakland, as much as I would like to keep it I'm really more of a 4 string guy. Given the quality of basses that are put up here I will say that this definitely not a mint bass, this is a player's bass and it shows.

    Some info on the bass, it is a 2005 Korean made 55-01. It is stock with the the bartolini mk1 pickups and preamp. The only mod done to the bass is the black strap locks by the previous owner, I am the second owner. It is currently strung up with DR Loriders if I recall correctly and less than an hour or two of playtime on them.

    The bass has some wear nothing that ever bothered me or affects the playability of the bass but I will detail it to the best of my ability. It is black with a maple neck. I will post additional pictures in the morning as well as outline the wear on the bass.

    I am asking $600 local Los Angeles sale only, the one time I shipped a bass was my worst experience on here so I do not wish to do that. I would much rather someone check it out in person than being emailed that I forgot to mention the 1mm scratch on the jack plate when dealing with shipping. If you are interested, have any questions just PM me.

    The finish around the some of the bolts has worn off

    Towards the bottom of the control cavity some of the finish has worn off was well.

    Some finish near the truss rod access has worn off as well

    Probably my favorite part if this bass, the fretboard
    [​IMG]
    This is probably the most significant "damage" nothing that bothered me but then again that's just me. There are two small scratches behind the 9th fret marker
