    If someone wants this, PM me soon - I will probably pull this down by Wednesday. I just spent all afternoon playing this bass and it sounds fantastic!

    This is a recent acquisition that I'm not 100% sure if I want to sell, so I'm gauging interest.

    This is a Lakland 4-94 Deluxe in Three-Tone Sunburst. The serial number is 179 and according to Dan Lakin the bass is from 1997. It has a rosewood fingerboard with birdseye maple fret dot inlays. This bass has Bartolini pickups and electronics without the dip switches for mid frequency selector. There is a trim pot for output volume.

    This bass has definately seen playing time and shows and has player wear, but it sounds fantastic and feels comfortable to play. I tried to take pictures of the cosmetic defects on the body up close as much as possible.

    The electronics cover plate is currently missing from the bass. Dan Lakin via email that a replacement is $20 and if and if the bass is shipped to Lakland an exact fit can be installed. Amazingly, the bass has been dead quiet every time I've played it even without the cover plate - quite a feat since some manufacturers can't achieve silent electronics WITH the cover plate!

    I'd like $1300 shipped in the Lower 48 / USA to part with this bass. It will ship in a Musicians Friend gig bag. I do have a Lakland hard shell case in very good condition that I can also sell for an additional cost.

    This bass brand new would be $2870 according to Bass Central's website, and a 44-02 deluxe would be $1399 + $59 for the gig bag new. That means you can buy this USA Lakland for less than the purchase price of a new Skyline 44-02 or over 50% off the new cost of a 4-94!
