    I was letting my Sadowsky 5 go but since the market is slow I'm now throwing this beauty into the mix to speed up the fundraising flow.
    Heavily desired CAR color with a maple board, Aero pickups and light as a feather too. What more do you want?

    It's true you can get DJ4s again, but not these DJ4's.
    Comes with Lakland SKB hardshell.

    There is one ding on this bass that is seen on the edge of the headstock below the Darryl Jones signature. Does have the normal swirls that comes with normal wear. Sorry about the smudges. I should have given it a better wipe down.

    No issues with this bass.

    Only trades will have to include a 35" scale Zon 5 string with of course money from me.

    $[DEL]1050.00[/DEL] shipped conus/ now [DEL]$1025[/DEL] Just $995 shipped conus. SOLD!

    I read a thread that said there were less than 30 of these CAR finishes made and less than half of those were with a maple fretboard. Couple that with a mere 8 lbs DJ4 with Aeros and that makes it cream of the crop and very rare.

    OK $1025 now. I'm gonna make this real easy by dropping price on it again. Don't let someone jump in front of you on this one.

    I can back that up. I have one of these myself and I asked Lakland about their rarity. I was told a total of 30 CAR's with 10 of those having a maple board. With this ad I think I've now seen four and played two of them!

    Good luck with the sale!

    Wow! Only 10 CAR's made with maple boards and this one is 8 lbs? Now I'm thinking about keeping it! Thanks for the confirmation Moduman.

    Yeah don't get rid of it. I JUST bought back my first lakland--a 2008 DJ AC model. I love it way too much, and still I'd consider trading you and throwing in a few bucks for this bass ;)

    keep-it!keep-it! everyone now: keep-it!

    Ridiculous steal. Maybe I should get it and start cornering the market? Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    (kidding, but I wish I could)

    Between the rarity and the weight (if Skylines have an issue, weight is usually it) you have a special bass there. Maybe consider holding onto it until you get the price you want?

    Yep. Looks like the market is forcing me to keep this one, which isn't a bad thing.

    Just to clarify bass weighs only 8lbs according to digital bathroom scale that's less than 6 months old. I weighed it twice before listing and then again upon request yesterday. It's dead on 8 every time.
