    Finally got my hands on one of my dream basses (a rather beautiful Roscoe), but sadly the wife aggro has kicked in and I must sell off a few of the basses that just don't get used.

    Up for grabs is a Lakland 55-02 with a deep, stunning 3 tone sunburst finish with a nice, figured maple neck and fingerboard. Details straight from Lakland are:

    Width @ Nut: 1.81"
    Width @ 22nd fret: 3.3"
    Scale: 35"
    Neck: Flat-Sawn Maple with Graphite Reinforcement Bars
    Top: Quilted Maple with 3 tone sunburst finish
    Tuners: Hipshot Ultra-Lite's
    Bridge: Dual Access (can run through bridge or through the body)
    Electronics: Lakland LH3 preamp with MM-J pickup config, B/M/T knobs with Master Volume and Panning-Style Pickup blend knob, 3-way bridge pickup coil tap toggle

    The pictures below should give you a good idea of how beautiful the finish is, with no chips/swirls/clear-coat cracks/etc. Very minor swirling on back near beltline, can't even see it in pictures and it's only visible if you really look under a direct light. I recently changed strings to Blue Steel 45-128's and it's been set up for that gauge.

    Not trying to make a profit, just looking for a fast sale to appease the Mrs.
    Looking for $850 SHIPPED with a flawless GATOR hardshell case.
    I will package this thing safely and have it out to you the next business day! Feel free to message me with any questions or offers.

    And now the pics:

    Photobucket was being a pest, so swapped to Flickr. Have more pictures available if needed.

    Wanted to clear up some questions from the several PMs I've gotten so everyone could see...

    The item is located in Fayetteville, NC.

    I gently stood the bass on my wife's super high speed bathroom scale, and it's fluctuating between 9.64 and 9.71lbs.

    I apologize to the several TBers from Russia and abroad who've messaged me, but I simply do not feel comfortable dealing with an international sale at this time. North American buyers only please.
