    Fellow Bassists,
    For some reason, she and I just never hit it off very well after the honeymoon ended. Great bass, still in like new condition, but after I picked up my first semi hollow, she just screams neglect in my home.
    I had full intent of making her #1, but we all know that sometimes relationships just don't wind up the way we'd hoped.
    (hopefully my heart is not running down my sleeve regarding how my New Year is starting...and why I'm selling...)
    OHSC, warranty card, wax, truss wrench, and even the original MECs included just to give her a good home for only $800 (firm) plus the "extra" charges-s&h, ins, Ppal, etc.
    Lots of pix available at our band's website as soon as anyone shows any interest.
    Check my 100% pos feedback at eslay, I'm 8870026. I'll likely put her on the block in a couple of weeks.
    thanks for lookin, my bros-

    Pics? color? scale?
    Consider trade for a Lakland Skyline Joe Osborn sig series? 3 months old. Original owner. I got it shopped from Lakland to me so nobody ever touched it at a chain store either

    no thanks on that trade offer, other trade offers considered; but only basses that weigh less than 9#.

    How about a Lakland Skyline 55-01 Cherryburst with maple board? It's mint... very comfortable, well balanced bass.

    I realized that the Hipshot on the 'vette will fit my hollowbody, so I've replaced the original tuning peg on the 'vette.

    The bass in excellent condition, no less than a 9 out of 10.

    Their are some light fingernail only scratches around the pickups, so I'm sure they'll rub out with the next waxing. The wood grain on this thing is just gorgeous, i'll try to have photos up by late tonight, when i get my camera home.
    i'd like some deets and pics on the Laklands (but only if they weigh less than 9 lbs.) and will consider trades.
