    Here we have an opportunity. This is a very sweet Lakland USA Bob Glaub classic P-Bass. The instruments feels like butter in your hands, with the 1.5" J-neck width. If you have not played a Lakland neck you are in for a very nice surprise. Thin neck profile makes it super easy on the hands, yet is stable through use of quarter-sawn wood which adds stability and strength. Serial number is BG485 which dates it after 2009 (Lakland Serial Number sheet ends at the 2009 BG411), so probably a 2010 build. Weight is 8.8 pounds.

    This bass has not been a case queen, however. The previous owner played her lovingly, and she shows a few love bites with several dents on the back and two chips in the clearcoat on the headstock. The upside is a chance to get a real players bass at a great price, a bass that you will actually love to play out without worry of nicking up a Lakland USA premium instrument.

    Previous owner replaced the stock Lakland pickups with higher end Curtis Novak hand wounds. I do not have the original pickups. Here is a link to the pickups:
    Curtis Novak Pickups

    Comes with original Lakland white case, which also has a lovebite on it.

    Let's go $1600 shipped on this, no fee payment, prefer personal check. Pretty low for a USA Lakland, a great players instrument at a good price. I'm selling because I just grabbed a mint 30th Anniversary Stingray and I'm keeping to my one-in-one-out rule. No Trades, please.

    So, all the damage is on the back on some minor chips on the headstock then, right?

    That is correct. The front looks great. The neck is smooth and nick-free. I never noticed the headstock chips until I got to writing this listing and gave her a close look over.
