    SOLD -Newer Indonesian made 5502 Deluxe. Quilt top, 3-tone burst, Maple neck and fingerboard, Lakland PUs and pre-amp, Excellent condition with light surface scratches being the only wear to speak of. Weighs in at 9.5 lbs on the bathroom scale. I'll give it a fresh set of strings before it leaves and buff it out when I've got them off (should take care of most of it). Ships in an SKB hard shell that isn't anything special, but does the job for protection $975 Shipped in the lower 48 SOLD

    Brand new 5501 and 4401. Both ash bodies, maple necks, rosewood fingerboard, natural finish. Both with Bart MK-1 pick ups and Hanson pre-amps. The 4401 comes in at just a hair under 8 lbs on the bathroom scale the the 5501 right at 8 lbs. BOTH ARE BRAND NEW, UNTOUCHED, COMPLETELY FACTORY FRESH GUITARS. 5501 was just plek'd on March 24th, the 4401 on March 21st. Both still have the plastic on the pick ups and tuners, have the original strings, and have less than 30 minutes of use on them. These are new as new can be (I got them in trade from a Lakland dealer a week and a half ago). Both ship in light weight gig bags. Save yourself a few bucks off buying from an online seller! $800 shipped for the 5501, $750 for the 4401

    SOLD Korean made 5502, Bart pick ups and electronics, maple neck and fingerboard. Weighs in at a featherweight 8 lbs. on the bathroom scale. The only wear is light players' wear and some string wear on the pick ups. This could be my most favorite Skyline Lakland ever. (if it had a rosewood board I'd probably keep it) Ships in a zero-G style hard side case. $850 Shipped SOLD

    How is the pick guard attached to the Korean 55-02?

    That brand new 5501 is super light (lighter than the 5502s!) and if it's the PUs holding you back, well I am a Nordstrand dealer and for a little extra we could make it cook with some DCs, Big Singles, Fat Stacks, or Big splits. Just sayin'... ;-)

    Very nice! I got to check these out at his shop. Thankfully I was picking up my own projects or the 4401 would have been very tempting. Oh and good thing to know I might be back from some Big Singles.

    Amazing basses! But do the 55-01 and 44-01 really have Hanson pre-amps? They don't have the stock Bartolini MK1?

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought it was Bart MK1 pick ups and Hanson pre-amp. I'll open one up today to find out.

    Wow, Wish I had seen that 5502 before my new Monarch..lol That's awesome helping him out like that Justin! Don't hesitate to let Justin do some work for you. I'm sending my "precious" to him for a refret.

    Back to the top. Most likely sending the remaining 5501 and 4401 to ebay here in the next week.... Reasonable offers considered....
