    Let me preface with the fact that I'm really not sure I want to do this. This bass is aggressive! It definitely has a place in my arsenal, but I think I prefer a slightly softer, more vintage tone. So I am listing just to feel out trades or a possible outright purchase. I'll happily listen to any trades. +/- cash where applicable. Shipped price is $2150.
    Bass is weighty at about 11.5, but it balances well, and my 9.5 lbs P bass hurts worse after a gig. No neck dive either. The weight also adds to the aggressive 70s vibe IMO.
    This bass was custom ordered with the following specs:

    Sadowsky Pre (just added the VTC retrofit kit, so the stack knobs don't match. Easy purchase at guitarpartsresource.com

    Performance Single Coils
    Bound and Blocked Maple Board
    Badass V bridge

    I'm happy to make some soundclips for anyone if you'll PM me an email address. The tone is kind of 70s Fender meets an Alembic or a Wal. Very upfront, aggressive, and impossible to get lost in a mix. The neck and setup are perfect and unmatched to any 5 I've played. It's been played. Various marks, etc. No damage..nothing major. Thanks for looking.

    Still Available. A Lakland P bass would surely get my attention.

    Still available. After speaking with Yas, I'm pretty sure these are actually Lindy Fralin single coils. Killer bass to be had here.
