    2 months old. Zero issues (all straight and symmetric) and sounds great. I was seduced by the look and love the sound but subsequently found an older used USA Lakland that weighs over a pound less and sees all the action. This one is the very 1st one pictured on the basscentral.com site:

    http://www.basscentral.com/lakeland_usa/skyline_5501_5502.shtml

    Just scroll down a tad. SN #110918130 9.5 lbs, 35 inch scale, 19mm spacing. Fantastic Lakie neck profile. The only thing to distinguish this from a new one is that I added a recessed Dunlop straplock receiver to the lower body edge, which affects nothing and is only visible if you flip her upside down and stare at the lower edge.

    725 shipped in CONUS from NY or can be picked up in Montreal for the same price. Mildly used Body Glove gigbag for another 50. FS price firm. Paypal.

    Would trade for a lighter 5501, even if it's a little esthetically beaten up, or might add cash for a lighter 5502, USA Lakie or Elrick 5 (8.5 lbs max for bass trades). Might consider partial trade for a micro head that pushes at least 300 watts into 8 Ohms (GK preferred), nice fuzz, dist, preamp or env filter pedals, 110, 112 or 210 cab.


    my pics soon.
