It’s a great bass, everything a Lakland should be, but I find myself wanting the sound from the more modern Lakland pups and LH3 preamp. So I’ll see what put there.

    Korean made 2003, with the original Bartolini pups and preamp. It’s in remarkable shape for its age. Some very fine hairline scratches on on the back and some in the “slap zone” on the front but otherwise great shape. No divots or dings, candy red with a maple neck, truss rod turns free. About 9-9.5 on the scale. Comes with a soft case.

    Really looking for another modern Lakland on trade. 55-02, 55-60, and DJ5 top of the list with maple fretboards preffered. 55-01 maybe considered if it’s something special. Float other stuff by if you like but I’m basically married to 35 inch scale and better that 17mm spacing. Shipping is to lower 48 only. Thanks.

    Bump & GLWTS. I sold my '02 Cherryburst/maple 55-02D here couple years ago and have missed it ever since.

    But I too want my next used, 55-02 I buy to have the Hanson electronics in it, for comparisons' sake. I also sold my '07 Skyline Joe Osborne-5 here last year. Because the I think the older, Skyline JO-5 I played at a music store had the Fralin pups and that's the sound that stayed in my head. Liked the JoBo5 burst alot, bought it here on TB, just wasn't the sound in my head.

    Both of my ex-Skyline's were outstanding looking, feeling, playing basses. Love the Lakland necks.
    So I'll have another -02 w/Hanson's at some point. Nice looking bass you have here, again GLWTS.

    Red and cherry burst are my favorites! I do have a silver 5502 with all nordstrand-it's awesome!
