    Hey everybody! Today, I have a Lakland 55-01 that I’d like to give to a good home.

    I’ve just finished working full-time for the last seven months on a cruise ship, playing music in a production show and jazz band. I ended up using this bass as part of my job (my other bass was a similar 55-01 as a backup).

    This bass is in good cosmetic condition. Pictures have been posted below with any dings or scratches pointed out. The playability is excellent with very low and even action (The bass has been plek'd) and the bass is equipped with straplocks as well.

    There are a thousand soundclips of this bass online, so I didn’t bother posting one. However, let me know if you’d like some and I can post up a few quick soundclips for those of you who are interested.

    I currently live in Canada (Vancouver, BC to be exact), but I will ship anywhere, worldwide. I plan on shipping the bass, very well packed, neck and body separated in the same box, with everything included. I’ve sold quite a few basses this way and it makes shipping them cheaper and safer, as you don’t have to worry about fedex or UPS damaging or snapping the neck because of package abuse. Shipping up to $75 has been included in the price (if you live anywhere that pushes the shipping above that, you just pay the difference).

    In terms of price, I’m looking for $675.

    For trade, let me know what you’ve got. I’m looking almost exclusively for six string basses, but I’m not automatically going to say no to the right four string… just let me know what you’re thinking. I am looking primarily to sell, so the trade would have to be something special. Basses only, please; no amps, preamps, etc... Pedals are actually ok, but would have to be pedal + cash or multiple different pedals.

    Thanks for looking!

    Is that wear or a finish problem on the neck (last picture)? Or possibly the reflection of the grey floor?

    Are you willing to have the instrument inspected by a qualified luthier as a part of the sale?

    Hey. It's a reflection of the floor.

    Sure, but what would you want to know/how would I go about getting that done?

    I'd just have my local guy check it out and make sure there's nothing wrong beyond what is dealt with in a normal setup.

    Any interest in an Ibanez SR506? It is pretty much new, I got it in Nov and I just can't get used to the C string.......

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I just got rid of one. Great basses, but not interested in that one ATM. Thanks.

    Good luck!
