    2004 Lakland Skyline Joe Osborn Limited Edition
    One of 23 limited edition basses commissioned by Steve Barr with Vintage Bass Trading Company. Metallic Sherwood Green with matching headstock, Lindy Fralin pickups, J-Retro active 9 volt preamp, OHSC. This is truly a jazz bass on steroids. Plays and sounds great. Mint condition! Asking $995.00 or will consider trade for Stingray 5 or ? If you have a nice 5 string that you are interested in trading, run it by me. You never know! Thanks!

    Oh, man.

    You would put this up for sale just days before my DJ5 arrives, and on the same day my wife got the bid for the landscaping for our house. :eek: :scowl:

    Hope it goes to a good home. :(

    Can I ask how much it weighs? Some of those Skylines were heavy.

    That was my former bass. I believe it was just under 10 lbs. Very comfortable to play, even on those 3-set nights.
    Awesome bass. If I was into jazz basses I would have never let this one go.

    FWIW...this has a 9v preamp not 18v.

    Whoever buys this please send me your info to vintgebass@aol.com because I keep track of who owns all 23 of these.

    I've still in the process of getting the limited edition certificates out to the individual owners which I had signed by both Dan Lakin and Joe Osborm in Chicago in March.

    So, whoever winds up buying this needs to contact me so I can send them the certificate. It will also come with a chrome neck pickup cover.

    Sorry about that! Dude, you are indeed correct. I must have mixed up my basses when I wrote up the ad. My mistake. I will correct it. Thanks!
