This is my Lakland Darryl Jones 5 String with a professionally installed Audere preamp. The pickguard is a great looking, charcoal gray grid design. The finish is the standard black sparkle that comes on a Darryl Jones and is on the headstock as well. It's an awesome playing and sounding bass and I'd keep it, but for the need to thin the herd a bit. It has been lightly used, well cared for and it is in excellent condition. I will include a gig bag as well. I'm asking $1100.00 for it and $30.00 for shipping within the 48 contiguous United States. I accept Pay Pal, Money Orders and Cashiers Checks. If you wish, check my E Bay rating. My E Bay user name is tff12553 (it's 100% positive!). I have a few more photos of the bass, but I was prevented from uploading more than two, so PM me with an e-mail address and I can send a few more if you like.
