    For sale is my 2012 Lakland Skyline 55-60 Custom. I've only owned this bass for a few months now and I rarely ever play it (I've always been quite attached to my 55-02.) It weighs-in at a mere 9.0 lbs. I would rate this bass a 9/10 due to some swirling on the pickguard and maybe a couple of very light dings (I couldn't find any but there may be a couple...)

    I am only selling this bass because I just signed an endorsement deal with another brand, so I'm clearing out all of my Laklands...

    $925 shipped CONUS in a really nice Cort gig bag (looks just like the Lakland gig bags.)

    NO TRADES PLEASE!!! 05DFF1CB-3ED1-46E7-A98D-518A59BBF29C. 1AF0EDBF-02E4-4CEE-864F-C6F1FB4FD514. 4304F7AA-326E-4EBD-B173-5E3DAE97255C. 2D6A6E2F-E78B-472A-9136-743DCE408800. 804E92FE-0E68-4EEA-9D47-28ABDA4A1623_1. 217A6863-537B-4FFC-AAC3-220FF40C8DA7_1.

    Why thank you, sir! I would love to keep these Laklands around but I've got some pretty sweet new basses incoming and I've got to offset the cost somehow...
     
  7. Dang it, I want this! Twin to my rosewood board 55-60. Same color/pickguard combo too.

    Nice bass but I am not interested in any trades. Thanks though!

    I signed on with MTD, endorsing their Kingston Series basses. It's a great family and a great group of people. I'm very excited to be a part of it.

    While lakland is my favorite, Mtd makes a great product. I would love to have a 4 string beast MTD from the Czech era

    Just an FYI: shipping to Los Angeles for my 55-64 was an astonishing $115. So at $925 shipped, you're essentially getting a smokin' deal on this bass!

    Pretty bass. What's the tone? Is it polite like the stock 55-02? Or does it have some growl and grit!

    Thanks, Ken! It definitely has that 60's Jazz Bass vibe going on. It's a totally different animal than the 55-02, in a good way of course. Still has that amazing Lakland neck as well!
