    This is a 2011 Lakland Skyline 44-60 Custom Joe Osborn, Trans White, Bound and Blocked Neck with Chi-Sonic pups. Made in Indonesia. I am the original owner and have never seen another like it. Near mint condition, I can't find a mark on it. Neck as gone through the Carl Pedigo neck treatment and is smooth as silk. Very versatile, warm syrupy tone, killer slap sound. Asking $950 SHIPPED CONUS. No case, basic gigbag.


    ***Several people have asked about modifications that have been do to this bass and about the Chi-sonics. With the exception of the Chi-sonics, this bass is stock from the factory. People have asked why the Chi-sonics do not have the silver rings? These are a new model of drop-in Chi-sonics, CSJ4, that I got directly from Lakland in December and are made as a direct replacement for a jazz pup.

    How about the control plate with the 2 concentric knobs? I have the same model bass and mine has 3 knobs!

    That's how it came from Lakland. Like I said, I have never seen another like this.

    Seriously a sweet bass here folks. I've never seen another skyline transparent white finish before, and the neck treatment is legit
