    Hate to part with this bad boy, but I just got my first 5-string & my wife is making me do some selling!

    This bass is great. Nice action, warm tone, punchy. I bought this 44-94 deluxe used in 2002. The body appears to be alder with a maple top. Maple neck with an ebony board. It's got a hip-shot tuner so you can get that low D. Nice! I paid $1600 for it in 2002. I'm asking $1400 obo.

    Please email me for pictures. I'm having trouble getting them loaded! ken_o@nishkian.com or pm me.

    I have a very nice Sterling that I'm looking to trade for a Lakland. Any interest in a trade plus cash arrangement? This bass is currently set up to play at HALF the string height of a new Sadowsky. Don't tell you don't want to keep a 4-banger around the house!! :)

    I located a 167 stamped onto the top of the headstock. I assume this is the serial number. I hope this helps!
  5. This bass is one of the older ones with the input jack on the top I assume? Low serial number for sure...mine is #273 and it's a 97.

    Per Lakland:

    167 was made Dec 97

    273 was made Mar 98
  9. Thanks for the info! The person I bought mine from thought it was a 97.
