I'm not intimately familiar with the marque. The bass, from what I can tell, is a "classic' model. It has a solid finish with a pickguard and Bartolini pickups. The odd thing is that I can't find anything that says "Made in the USA" anywhere on the bass. My impression is that there should be a decal on the back of the headstock indicating US manufacture. Another odd thing is that I can't find a serial number anywhere on the bass. Anywhere obvious, that is. I would guess that it's not a Skyline, as the decal on the headstock says "Lakland" only. Does this all seem right? The guy wants $1,400.
