My laklandwas made in Korea I got in about 2003, It has flatwounds on now it's in great shape fundamentally but has some wear, it is a little smudgy too. There is a dent in the bottom by the jack. And the back has some belt rash, When I bought this bass there was a small bare spot on the neck too, it never bothered me. I have a hardshell case that could go with it. Also do you have any interest in an a zoom H1 recorder and/or an ebs octabass effect pedal? The recorder is great for recording gigs and octabass is a great sounding octave pedal that is designed for bass but works well with other instruments too Images I'm looking for a four string fender precision (preferably passive) maybe a p/j or equivalent high quality bass.
