  1. Hi,

    I have a Lakland Skyline 55-64 in Sunburst w/ tort pickguard I'm looking to sell or trade. I bought it from another Forum user a few weeks ago who had bought it new around 5 months ago. I took the plastic of the pickguard and the bass is still in pristine condition. It's awesome sounding bass, but I miss my jazz growl. $930 shipped to the lower 48 in a hardshell Roadrunner case.

    For trades, I'm looking for a J5 config whether it's a Skyline JO5/DJ5, 55-AJ, SB5000, Fender AM standard J5... been thinking about a stingray 5 too, Let me know what you have of similar value. I'm leaning more towards an american Fender, willing to throw in money on my end to make up the difference. Thanks for checking it out!

    As the new owner of this awesome 55-64 I lucked out too...twice!

    I picked up the 55-60 Custom that Bassassin31 has now almost 2 years ago, halfway across the country after a perfectly timed but completely random in-area craigslist check. Now almost the same thing happened here! I'd been GASing for a 5 string P copy for a while, and then last week during an ill-advised 3AM craigslist browse this beaut shows up, and not only was the trade option not something ridiculous...it was something I had!

    Pretty stoked that it worked out this way, and I'm glad Mr. Bassassin31 feels the same.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have some playing to do ;)
