    This instrument is truly amazing, and a testament to the craftsmanship of early Lakland (and all Lakland, for that matter - I think they're all great.) I just need to free up some capital.

    On the block is a 1997 Lakland 4-94 Deluxe, Serial Number #177, in flamed maple over ash, with a rosewood fretboard. The bass has some minor scrapes, and some small indentations on the back (pictured) from normal play, but is in fantastic working order. The frets are in amazing shape for the age of the instrument, and I'm guessing it wore flats or at best nickels for most of its life.

    You know what? I'll let the previous owner speak for me, as the bass is in the same condition as when it last changed hands:
    For Sale - '97 Lakland 44-94 Deluxe, #177 | TalkBass.com

    Was looking for $2000, now doing $1800 shipped CONUS. Inquiries welcome.

    Comes with Lakland Factory Case.

    And still sweet. I was lucky enough to score #263 last year and can attest to the awesomeness of an aged Lākland. glwts

    There is something very very special about these early Laklands. Wish I had use for another bass at this point.

    If I didn't already own two early Laklands, I'd be all over this. Beautiful bass, and GLWTS.
