    Big Black Swamp-ash body, Fralin Single Coil pickups...

    Perfect Neck profile...and an extremely tight neck joint

    The combination of ash body and singles on this bass = punch & growl all night long... it nails the classic jazz bass sound dead on. It's balanced, with a great presence in the low end and sweet singing highs. The Fralin pickups are clear and bright, without being brittle...The bass simply has a beautiful full, warm sound.

    I'm convinced that Lakland does Fender better than Fender does. The new American Standards are just a little better than in recent previous years but when you play this bass it just sounds and feels right...

    I've got a new DJ Lakland on the way so...:cool:

    This is a great looking/sounding bass and is worth every bit of $875 shipped...

    Comes with a new gig bag and is ready to go...

    Link for more pics as I take them...

  2. Black, red tort, single coils, rosewood and that beautiful lakland bridge. Sorry I can't come close to buying it at this juncture, but that is one incredible combo.

    It's perfect. Depending on the light it can get very red as well which matches the pickguard. Around the 2nd or 3rd fret there is a nice little swirl that really makes the board pop as well...

    God, what I wouldn't give for $875 right now. I've got a major amp purchase coming in or I'd be all over it.

    Bathroom scale says 9.5lbs which sounds about right for this bass...
