    For sale or trade is a beautiful 2004 Bart equipped Lakland 55-94D, Tobacco sunburst with a birdseye maple neck that is incredible (see pictures below - the pics do not do the quilting or the burl justice).

    I got this a few months ago is a trade for my RIC (plus $$$ on my part).....It is REALLY a great player and is in "as new" condition (at LEAST a 9.0 to 9.5).....my only concern is that it is a "little redundant" with my 55-02 and, although I did some pre-amp tweaking, I still like the LH3 system better!

    I would consider the following (in order of preference):

    • US JO5 - unique color or natural a BIG plus!
    • "Adam Clayton" style USJO or USDJ (natural, birds eye maple board, black blocks, black pick guard)
    • US JO4 (cash on your end possible) - unique color or natural a BIG plus!
    • US 55-76
    • US Scheff (cash on your end possible) - unique color a BIG plus!
    • Skyline JO5 and another Skyline (PM me with offers)
    • "Adam Clayton" style Skyline DJ (natural, maple board, black blocks, black pick guard)and another Skyline
    • Skyline JO4 and another Skyline (PM me with offers)

    I would sell it for $1,900 shipped CONUS....When I traded my RIC and cash, this was about what I ended up "spending"....

    here are two picture....PM me for more if you want them....ships CONUS with a Lakland cream colored hardshell case which is one of the nicest cases I have ever owned!!!

    Oh - and the headstock is signed in the back by Dan Lakin himself! He signed it at the LOG GTG earlier this year.

    Sorry - the pockets are different on US and Skyline versions....it will not fit....

    sell your 55-02 and buy the 55-94! I know you JUST bought the 55-02 but things change (LOL!)

    A "not enough posts to keep this near the top" BUMP....

    as I stated, I am getting a fairly regular trickle of offers, but not what I am looking for yet......also consider the cash option....

    This one was mine that I bought new. Awesome bass. I just never play five string. Doug is a great guy to work with and the bass is fantastic.



    BTW Doug I'm playing the House of Blues in Chicago on the 20th and 21st of November if you are in town. It would be nice to meet you face-to-face.

    Isn't it? Probably exactly what I would buy to get back into a Lakland. I really miss my 55-02 Deluxe cherryburst / rosewood (with Barts too)!!

    I've had the opportunity to see this bass up close and during the Lakland workshop in Brookfield last May. It was the first American Lakland I was able to try out.

    Saaaweet! Great first impression. :)
