    This bass has been my main bass for the last 5+ years. I have gigged it, but it has been taken care of.

    This is a special bass from the "Golden Era" of Lakland dating to 1998. it is in 8.5/10 condition.

    The bass plays and sounds amazing. I wish I didn't have to sell it, but my current any only band right now requires me to have a few more frets :)

    The bass features:

    -old/original Bartolini pickup and preamp

    -quilted maple top

    -birdseye maple fretboard

    -flamed/quartersawm maple neck

    -original cream case, like new

    -some haze in the 'slap' area

    -buckle rash on the clearcoat on back

    -some wear on the neck pickup

    -exact weight is 9.0lbs. on my digital bathroom scale

    I will honestly miss this bass, but I can't afford the bass I'd really like for my current needs without selling or trading it.

    Trade interests: (5-strings, soapbars, active, 24 frets, sub 9.5lbs)

    -MTD 535-24 (no wenge/wenge necks)

    -Modulus Q5 with a chechen board

    -Maybe a Ken Smith or Sadowsky Modern

    -possibly a really nice Ibanez with cash my way

    Will add cash for the right trade.

    Sale price is $2600 plus actual shipping.

    That is a beautiful bass! I don’t know if you can get Birdseye maple fingerboards like that any more.
