    1998 sparkle black Lakland 55-94 5 string bass in great condition. Light weight alder body with quarter sawn rock maple neck with birdsye maple finger baord. Bartolini pickups and Bartolini NTMB-L on board preamp.The bass weighs 8 lbs 14 oz. The original neck developed a truss rod issue so I had Lakland install a brand new neck in late 2011, all work was professionally completed by Lakland/Chicago Bass Doctor master luthier, Carl Pedigo. It's in outstanding condition with vertually no fret wear. It plays and sounds great! There is signs use but the bass has been really well cared for. The case is in good shape with some scuffs but all latches and hinges work properly. The knobs are a little worn from rubbing inside a gig bag, please see photos.
    I’m new to selling on Talk Bass but please be assured that my playing, buying and selling experience and reputation are solid by those who know me. Please check my ebay seller feedback, handle matt4717, Thank you.

    Hi chunhaking,
    I do have some mp3's on the internet that I can download but they are too big to post. Follow this link and listen to Chain of Fools, Take me to the River and Don't Mess With My Man.

    I had the same bass in inca silver. About once a week I kick myself for selling, and that was 4 years ago. I have to see of I can unload some gear before some else realized what deal this bass at this price.

    If I still played 5s I'd already have this one on a Fedex truck. I've got a pre-2k 55-94 deluxe, it'd be great to have an alder bodied Classic to hang beside it. Sparkle black is a rare color too guys!

    I'll never sell my 55-94!

    Hi all,
    As much as I want to keep this bass I need the money. $1795.00 and buyer pays actual insure shipping. I use new boxes and shipping materials and take great care in packing. Also local pickup is always welcome.
    Thanks
    Matt
