FS: Lakland 55-01 CAR Great Condition!

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by remy26, Oct 2, 2010.

  1. I bought this off another TB'er a couple of months ago as my first foray into 5 strings. While it definitely put me on the path to really enjoying the extra string, I've decided that a 35 inch scale and wider string spacing isn't for me.

    The original thread is here:


    This bass is pretty much in the exact same condition as when I purchased it. The few changes I have made are:

    Added Schaller straplocks
    Switched out the stock Y tuners for Cloverleaf hipshots
    Added a small shim to the neck to get the action a little lower
    Added a little more foam under the pickups because I wanted them a little higher.

    This is a "Made in Korea" version of the 55-01. I also weighed the bass again on my digital kitchen scale and the weight is 9 Lbs. 1 oz. (its listed as 9lbs. 9 oz in the other thread). Not sure which is more accurate, but it definitely doesn't feel heavy.

    Not really interested in trades at the moment. Will ship in a Lakland (made by Levy's) gigbag. I can switch back to the stock tuners if you'd like or I can send the bass with both sets for and additional $50.

    $545 shipped ($595 with both sets of tuners) shipped in cont US. Sorry, but no international shipping and PayPal only!

    That's a killer deal on a a very very nice bass. Love them 55-01's. But do I need a 4th. The red is nice though. Thinking...
  3. Bump!
  4. Did the new tuners require new screw holes?
  5. Nope, the tuners were direct drop-in replacements.
  6. Awesome deal bump

    How is this still here at this price? This should be long gone! Lakland CAR finish is gorgeous & must be seen in person!

    I agree on both points Matt!!!

    lakland's CAR is so deep you can almost drown in it!!! I have a CAR 55-94 fretless and love it to death!
  10. Thanks to both of you! It really is a beautiful bass. I actually was happy to find this one as it definitely looks great. I've really tried to get used to the feel but I just haven't been able to yet. If it hangs around too long, you never know...it may end up staying!
  11. Am I missing something or is this just an incredible steal?

    That is a steal. I would never sell mine for that.
