    Had this for sale earlier in the year, there is nothing wrong with the bass, just moving exclusively to 4-strings.

    Listed at $900 FIRM shipped within North America. Will not ship outside of North America, sorry.

    I have a very specific trade list, trade interest (+/- cash as needed) limited to:
    Lakland Skyline shorty HOBO
    Spector 4s (Coda, Euro LX, Rebop, Legends)
    EBMM Big Al 4SSS

    Specs:
    Lakland Skyline 5501 Deluxe Spalted Maple top on ash body.
    Upgraded with Nordstrand Big Splits pickups with Nordstrand 3Band preamp (5A)
    featuring active/passive push/pull pot, adjustable mid frequency push/pull pot.
    35" Scale
    19mm spacing at the bridge
    22 frets
    Nut Width: 1.81"
    Weight of the bass on my digital scale is: 9 lbs 3 oz
    Currently strung with D'addario rounds
    Comes with Roadrunner padded gig bag
    The only thing I did to the bass was have my tech do a setup and I added two small string tree retainers (shown in pic below).
    The bass was mfg in 2012 but shows absolutely no wear other than fingerprints, no dings for sure.

    OK, I have time now to post the sound clips that I made when I had this bass for sale earlier in the year. These are nothing fancy, just playing some scales and noodling, but I think they give the listener a taste of the way this bass sounds, which is the point of sound clips, isn't it?

    Anywho, this is the actual bass, strung with the rounds, thru a Genz-Benz Streamliner 900 head, direct into Garageband with no other tone shaping used. For best results, listen with headphones or really good computer speakers.

    #1. The first demo is a setting that I particularly liked, it favors the neck pickup, has a bit of boost to the bass, and treble is rolled off just a bit. To me, sounds nice and warm and meaty.




    #2. Demo of the neck pickup at 100%, rest of controls are at center detente (flat)




    #3 Demo of the bridge pickup at 100%, rest of controls are at center/flat




    #4 Pickups blended 50/50, rest of controls are at center/flat
    I am not sure why the overall volume changed on this one, I thought it was set to the same as all the other ones.
