    Hello all!

    I'm selling my Lakland 2008 Lakland Skyline Joe Osborn 5. Its black, mint pickguard, 35" scale, etc.

    Cosmetically its in great shape, 8/10. Body/neck conditions are great, only a few hard to find dents/nicks.

    HOWEVER, I've been having trouble getting it to not buzz. I am a hard player, and the small lakland frets never really worked out for me, but I took it to a guy and we had to get the action up really high before it would stop buzzing.

    I feel like it's the bass, but then again it is a high quality instrument, so maybe it's just me.

    Some specs:

    35" Scale
    22 Frets
    Lakland Pickups
    Black with Mint Pickguard

    Any questions give me a shout, otherwise: SOLD + Shipping OBO. No Trades!

    I guess its ridiculous...

    Keep in mind everyone, this bass has this issue. I hope whoever gets it keeps that in mind when they receive it. I guess its totally possible its the way I play, but this is the ONLY bass I've ever had a problem with, including another lakland that I play every now and then...
