    So I recently recieved this "famous" Lakland 55-94, its trans white ash body with birdseye maple board. Been through Adrian Garcia's hands, and Fralim01 and Jazz5757 and now through mine. Its a gorgeous bass that I swore I would never sell. But my car is starting to die, and I just bought a F Bass BN5 which seems to be more me.

    I just had it all set up and taken care off, there are some minor surface scratches from use, nothing major. I'd like $1600 SHIPPED for it but if you'd like to throw your best offer for me, I wouldn't mind taking a look, I really need the cash, so I'm not really looking for any trades.

    I took off the silver knobs and put back on the standard bart ones, I moved and don't remember where I put the silver knobs, but I think I have a set of birdseye knobs I ordered from Gallery Hardwoods which I MIGHT be able to find, also packed these up when I moved but I have a SLIGHT idea where they are.

    Comes with the standard cream white Lakland G&G case.

    I'd prefer check/money order (won't ship until check clears), but will consider taking PayPal, but fees are on your part, oh yea PM me here or e-mail me at anthonyjwong (at) gmail.com

    Last chance, if it doesn't sell I'm shipping it off for consignment.

    BTW This has new strings, a fresh battery, and just came back from my tech so the intonation's right and the neck's good.

    Yes. I remember when Adrian still had this bass, and if you know anything about him, two things are true: He's a great guy, and he's a great bass player with VERY discerning taste for tone. That said, he raved about this bass and really lamented selling it. This bass is guaranteed drool material.

    this is an AWESOME bass! i had abouy 5 guys here in vegas offered to buy it after they heard it- i could not bring myself to allow them to sound that good and steal work from me!
    seriously- a very happening bass! tons of sound from this one, light and comfy, too.
     
  8. I bought that from Adrian a while back and sold to fralim01.. very nice bass. I ended up selling it and getting a Sadowsky NYC. Anyway, whoever gets it will love it..

    Now remember, if you don't like it (Please don't like it! Please don't like it!), I'll be willing to take it off your hands ;)

    Oh well, I tried.
