    SOLD For sale: Lakland 55-02 Standard, black body with maple fingerboard (a combo that's hard to find, in demand and sensational looking). Bass is a late 2004 with Hipshot lite tuners and the same electronics as U.S.-made Laklands (Bart MM/J pickups, Bart NTMB preamp, etc.) It's in near-mint condition with some normal and light scuffing from normal play.

    Two mods have been installed on the bass: Dunlop Straploks and a custom brass nut, which is a huge improvement over the stock plastic nut.

    It plays like butter (especially the B-string), looks like a dream and sounds like just about anything you want it to. I'm selling it because I'm going back to 4-string basses and need to finance the purchase of a Zon.

    Asking $800 + shipping. No trades, please. Bass doesn't come with a case (I want to keep the Body Glove gig bag I keep it in), but I'll ship carefully and properly. Two pics are attached; more are available upon request, of course. Thanks, y'all!

    PMs have been returned.

    A note: I'll be out of town and away from a computer from Thursday afternoon through early Sunday evening, so if anyone else has interest in the 55-02, lemme know by Thursday morning. It looks like the bass will probably be sold by Sunday evening if not sooner. Thanks, everyone!

    I've emailed you. I'm local so no shipping if I can see it in person.

    PMs have been returned, and a sale is pending. If that deal falls through on Sunday (a definite possibility), the bass will be offered to other potential buyers in order of their initial contact of me. If anyone is no longer interested either now or by then, please PM me so I can remove you from the queue.

    Thanks, y'all!

    Sale is pending to someone else, but they're the last one in line ... so if for some reason he passes, this bass will still be available. First $800 takes it, folks ... it's a gem and a player.
