    This is up for sale along with some other basses to purchase a bass back that I shouldn't have sold.

    Lakland U.S.A. model
    55 JJ CS
    Passive Chisonic single coils
    Color: Lakland Shoreline Gold w/ matching headstock
    Rosewood fretboard with block inlays.
    Mint condition: 9.5 out of 10
    Lakland hard case, cream color.

    Bass is currently at Pat Wilkin's shop getting the matching headstock. I was also going to get a pickguard on her.

    Price: $2350 with matching headstock, no pick guard, including shipping in the lower 48 states.

    If you want a pickguard, u will need a price from Pat. I have some different options that Markus did for me. Here's a thread about the pick guard:

    There was a translucent white one that someone on these boards has as well, might not have the chi's but was definitely a Us 55 with an all passive setup. Sweet basses!

    Yep, that was mine. It had original Duncan Basslines in it. I sold it a while back and have regretted it ever since. There just aren't very many of these. Mine was very lightweight and responsive. Great basses for sure. Wish I had the funds to pick up this one. With the Chisonics and the matching headstock it just doesn't get any better IMO.

    some questions:
    what's the body wood?
    weight?
    is the pickup spacing "60's or 70's?"
     
  15. I can answer the first two.
    Ash body. Very light. If I recal its 8 - 8 1/2 lbs.
    I'm not sure about pickup spacing.
     
  16. Actually, I am the original owner. I bought it brand new.
    I sold it to Butler two weeks ago
