    Original thread here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/lakland-hollowbody-skyline-fs-only-878976/

    [DEL]Selling for the same-- 950 shipped![/DEL] $900 shipped! Ferg built a badass box to ship it in, and I still have it.

    I LOVE THIS BASS. It's incredible. Sounds great. When I got it, I gave the whole thing a cleanup, 0000 steel wool'd the fretboard and gave it some feed n' wax. Put on DR hi beams.

    It's a beast. But I just bought a USA Decade with darkstars...

    So I told myself I'd sell three basses. :(

    That includes a 2005 Glaub T3S tort PG and a 1974 Mustang bass with an Oly White refinish. Will be posting soon.

    I don't own a Lakland (yet) and have heard really great things about them. Was wondering where this one (2003 Skyline HB) was made? I've heard the locations where they are built has changed and was curious. Korea? Indo? China?

    TIA

    These were made in South Korea. The current ones are made in Indonesia. I recommend the early ones like this one, with the barts! I am tempted myself, wish it had the hard case.

    I highly recommend these early Skylines, they have very US like necks on 'em & this is a nice price for a sweet bass!

    It's a great bass. Might find an excuse to keep it if it stays too long..

    Great axe indeed. One of these just sold for $25 more with Chi's (i prefer the barts by a lot...) in 3TS (vs CAR?? come on!) And newer. This one was in a great timeframe for skyline necks...is it just waiting for the perfect owner?

    Thanks, guys! It would be worth keeping, for sure, if this somehow sticks around for a few paychecks.
