    Trying to make a run at a 4/94 but I got to sell the Scheff.
    You guys know the one... it is one of only ,a few fretless Skyline Scheff produced, the Armstrong pick ups were replaced... and you wont be sorry. She sounds awesome and is the ONLY fretless I have been able to play. I will include an extra 9 volt for the pre-amp, the strings could use a change, but this beauty hardly looks like it's been used at all!!

    $850 shipped in a Lakland hard case.. lower 48... paypal preferred

    pm or e-mail with questions, offers, etc...

    Scheff.
     
  2. Bump for Terry!

    actually this bass came right from the factory with the Bassline-vintage sb-1's, this bass was put together for Brian Gingrich that works at lakland, and he had them put the basslines in it because he liked them better than the armstrongs. you can tell that ALOT of attention went into this bass when it was put together. nicest skyline ive played.

    Please post more photos of the Jerry Scheff and of the additional Fretted Maple Neck. Any wear we need to know about?

    Also, please PM me with the S/Ns of both necks. Which Neck is the original neck for the Bass?

    Thanks for the updated info and photo...

    Is a Lakland Hardshell Case and/or Lakland GigBag included?

    I'm concerned about transit/shipping protection.

    I have bought more stuff from Terry than I will ever admit to my wife. Regardless of the case, his shipping second to none! If he shipped me a bass without a case, I would have no hesitation. Incredible guy who knows how pack gear.

    FYI - this is not the only skyline fretless Scheff ever made, because I used to have one. It was also CAR, but regular lipstick pickups. I sold it for a fretted 5 string version. Mine had a mirror pickguard.

    Is there an official certificate/document from Lakland or Brian Gingrich of Lakland that clearly states "this bass is the only Fretless Jerry Scheff"? Of course, that document would need to indicate the s/n of the unit. Such document would reinforce tis claim.

    These are quite rare by today's standards... I've played one with the lipstick pickups. It would be interesting to see/hear the differences between the two types.
     
  15. Lakland does not have certificates but they are very open to email questions so it would be very easy to confirm this claim.

    I also believe there were more fretless Scheffs. I seem to remember there was also a Lake Placid Blue one I saw back in the day.

    Either way there were very very few made. Heck there were very few Skyline fretted basses made. My guess is that there are 5 or less fretless Skyline Scheffs out there.

    i dont know that it is the only fretless skyline scheff, but i cant ell you that there is definately less than 5 in existance and this is the only one i have ever seen.the gentleman a few posts up said he owned one. no there are no certificate, but you can call brian at lakland, it was his bass originally and he can tell you how rare it is.

    you wont be sorry if you buy this bass, it is the nicĀ“st playing fretless i have ever touched.

    heck, i would love to get it back myself.

    Many thanks to my Lakland brothers who covered for me while I was out of town. I edited my original post to a "few" fretless Scheffs.... I stand corrected.
    Any more questions? send 'em to me & I'll get right back with you.
    As always, I am partial to trade offers including Maple board on a Glaub!!
