    Up for sale or trade is a killer US made Lakland J-Sonic

    The original owner initially ordered this bass new from Lakland as a 44-60 in December 2017 and received it in April 2018. There was apparently a finish flaw on the first body, so Lakland kindly offered to replace the whole body and the bass was sent back. At this time, the original owner opted to upgrade the bass to a J-Sonic by having Lakland Chi Sonic Pickups mounted for and extra fee. The original owner asked Lakland for a pickup cover color to match the hardware and headstock and Lakland supplied these plain black shells. Underneath are regular Lakland Chi Sonic Singles.


    -Chi Sonic Singles

    -Stacked Vol/Tone pots for each pickup

    -Alder Body

    -Quartersawn Maple Neck

    -Ebony Fingerboard W/Side dots

    -White Finish

    -Black Headstock

    -Black Hipshot Reverse Winding Tuners

    -Weighs in at 9.65 lbs.

    -34” Scale

    -1.5” Width at the Nut

    -Lakland Hard-shell Case

    The bass is in excellent playing shape with a nice straight neck, low action, and spot on intonation. There are a few minor blemishes on the bass. There’s one small ding on the bottom side of the bass, a couple of very small finish bubbles on the back, and one minor finish flaw underneath the bridge that is completely hidden by the bridge. There's also some super fine swirling in areas of the body and pickgaurd. It's honestly in really nice shape, but I just like to list out every minor blemish for full disclosure. The Chi Sonic pickups sound incredible, and the stacked tone knobs allow you to dial in a bunch of different tones.

    The original price for this bass was just over $3600

    Now asking $1950 shipped fully insured to Con US only.

    Open to trades for 4 or 5 string basses +/- cash in either direction for the right trade. I’m mainly looking for brands like; F Bass, Warwick, Valenti, Lakland, Dingwall, G. Gould, EBMM, Fender, etc… but feel free to let me know what you have.

    Let me know if you have any questions
