    Putting my Lakland Decade on the block as I just don't play it enough.

    When I got this it was a loaded body no idea what happened to the original neck, but with some searching I found a previous FS thread from when it was whole indicating that it was originally D99. Lakland verified that body and finish matched that serial number. The body wood is swamp ash.

    Since I knew it was legit I went ahead and purchased the body and put a deposit on a new neck from Lakland. I sent the body to Marty Bell to be refinished in gunmetal blue flake and then Marty sent it on to Lakland to have everything fitted and properly set up and to have a pickguard installed.


    I purchased a Gator hardshell case for it that's currently buried in storage. If someone is interested I'll either take an afternoon to dig it out or buy a new case to ship it in.

    Looking for $2600 shipped in the CONUS. If it doesn't sell that's fine I'm just looking to cover what I'm into it for. Also not looking for trades. The only exception would be maybe a US Spector NS-2 in good condition. If its the right one we can discuss values from there.

    More pictures to follow tomorrow.

    It looks even better in person it's pretty hard to capture the depth of the flake finish in photos. I'm going to try to take some outside tomorrow and might take a short video and see if I can turn it into a gif to capture the sparkle effect.
