    Older era Lakland 55-94 Deluxe Sunburst for sale. Bartolinis, NTMB pre-amp, original G&G HSC, strung with TI Flats that haven't seen much playing time.

    Serial number dates it to 2009, but I'm pretty sure it's an older body attached to the neck. One piece of evidence is a well-plugged hole in the body that represents (I believe) a shift in the bolt pattern of the necks over the years.

    Plays great, sounds great. Great frets. It just needs to be played.

    1600 shipped, and I like PayPal a lot!

    Have you contacted Lakland about the neck/body? If they did a replacement neck they should have records of that.

    Very interested.

    So I ended up buying this bass and it is really great! Hardly a scratch on it. And the neck is fantastic! Typical of Lakland! I contacted Leo @Lakland and inquired about the neck and bass in general. Leo told me they have no records for the bass. So it is an orphan, of sorts. Based on what I know, I have a 1997 55-94, it is likely a first generation body. The pickups and preamp are exactly the same as my 1997, Bartolini NBMT and Bartolini pickups. Somewhere down the line something happened to the neck...maybe it got broken, maybe it warped, maybe it was swapped, who knows? The serial number, 7254, indicates it was replaced around 2009. So just for kicks, I inquired about having a neck made for it, Rosewood fb, blocked and bound, but that might be cost prohibitive at $1400! For now, it is a super nice player that I'm going to enjoy!
