    As title states, selling a Natural Lakland Skyline 55-01. As you can see in the pics, ive installed a pickup ramp for better fingerstyle accuracy, but i'd be happy to cleanly remove it for you also. I know the pics are crappy, my camera sucks. I'll try to borrow one if anyone needs better ones, but there isnt much to photograph.

    Bass is fantastic, and was the bass that hooked me on Laklands. Theyre just so smooth and easy to play, and pack a huge punch for the overseas model. Build quality is again, just fantastic.

    Standard inter-tubes info:

    Maple body and board.
    35" Scale
    19mm String Spacing
    2 Soapbar pups w/stock Active preamp.
    Bass, Mid, Treble
    1 month old DR Black Beauties installed

    The only thing i could consider wrong with it is, the volume knob stalk feels a little looser than the others. Works perfectly fine, no scratchy sounds or anything. I used this bass professionally (wedding band) and it was 100% reliable. Its def a played bass, but shows very few signs of wear. Nothing noteworthy.

    Im only selling because i bought a 55-02 deluxe, and i use my fretless 6 as backup.

    Will entertain interesting trades and offers, but ultimately i need the cash. Make me a reasonable offer. I can work with you on shipping costs, depending on how close i get to my asking price. =]
