    Up for sale is my Lakland 44-01 in the limited edition Trans Blue finish they had a few years back.

    This one has some serious upgrades/additions, I'll state them below:
    The stock Bartolini pickups/electronics were upgraded to Lakland Chi-Sonic pickups and Lakland LH3 preamp, and a passive tone knob was added as well.
    Tuners were upgraded to USA Hipshots + Hipshot Xtender (droptuner.)
    Black pickguard was installed with double sided non-marring tape (no holes drilled)
    Neck has been PLEK'd.
    Knobs and strap buttons were changed out (has dunlop straplok buttons)

    This bass does it ALL! It has the absolute most comfortable neck of any bass I have ever owned, you can slam the action way down without any buzz (this bass convinced me that the PLEK process is for real) and it practically plays itself. The LH3 preamp is incredibly versatile, it goes from incredibly warm to bright and burpy and everything in between. I can record sound clips for interested parties.

    I am selling this bass only to Fund an EUB. I am only looking for either a nice electric upright bass and/or 5 string acoustic bass guitar in a trade.

    Price is $800 shipped to CONUS only in a gig bag.

    Cool bass. Standard question: what does the bass alone weigh? Thank you

    Bump - bass is a little under 9.5 pounds, about 9.2/9.3 to be a little more exact.
