    Up for sale is a beautiful Lakland Skyline 44-60 lined ebony fretless bass. This bass absolutely sings with that great mwah tone and looks amazing while doing so! The bass is in as near mint condition condition as it gets, no scratches, dents, and kept in a smoke-free environment and only gigged a few times! There are a couple of upgrades to the bass (done before I bought it):

    1) The original white pickguard was exchanged for a jeannie custom tortoise shell pickguard, however the original is included and still has the plastic from the showroom floor.
    2) The original pickups and pots were taken out and replaced with EMG's: JV (neck) and LJV (bridge). The original pots, pickups, and EMG box/paperwork and wiring diagram are included as well.

    Also included is the original case along with paperwork and original allen wrenches. The SN is 07123628 making it a 2007 model based on the info from Lakland's website. I purchased the bass from a musician in Atlanta who treated it with the same care as I have. I'm asking $825 shipped CONUS, paypal only.

    AGH! Let's see how the holidays treat me! How does that neck compare to a 44-02? I love the neck on mine, and am looking for something similar.

    Hey man, sorry I'm just getting back to ya, holidays have been quite busy, I've gotta be honest, I live in a small town with no music stores to speak of so this is the first lakland I've ever played. I really love the neck, the finish on it is really fast and feels excellent!

    Merry Christmas!

    Necks on the 44-60 (Joe Osborn) and 44-02 (MM-J) will feel very similar, if not identical.

    Thanks for fielding that one.

    Still available! What better way to start the new year than with a sweet new fretless? :D
