    Incredible Lakland Skyline 55-01 in natural with maple fretboard. It's in like new shape, I could not find any scratches or dings anywhere. Beautiful grain.
    This is Made in Indonesia in 2009, Plek'd at the Lakland Chicago factory. Bartolini MK-1 Pickups and Pre-Amp. it's got a great sound, and plays even better.
    Weighs only 9.2 lbs, really light for its kind. It was recently set up professionally at Bass Emporium.
    $550 shipped CONUS

    Why would you buy this one over a new one?
    - Save $274
    - Get a professional setup for free ($55 at Bass Emporium)
    - Guaranteed to get a light weight bass

    UPDATE: I wish I could keep it but I got to raise funds to buy a Lakland 55-94. Because of that, I am sorry but I cannot accept trades, unless it's my 55-01 + cash for your 55-94.

    I got more pictures if you're interested, just let me know. Thanks for looking!

    To answer some PMs: the price includes double-box shipping, unfortunately I don't have a gig bag for it. But if you require a hard case, PM me and we can arrange something.

    Well, I have never shipped internationally, but I did quote once for a guy in Germany that disappeared after he got the prices from FedEx and UPS. I believe USPS would be the cheapest, the problem is to get an exact quote for you to be able to send the right amount. I will look into that.

    That's got to be the most beautiful 01 I've seen to date. I miss my Cherryburst.

    This one's killing me, 'cuz I just sold her 'almost' twin sister a few months ago, and I'm really on the fence about this one!

    "Baby come back!...."

    Thanks guys for the compliments. It is really a beauty, and it plays great. One of the best necks I have seen in Laklands. I just can't justify owning four Laklands right now, paying interest in credit cards.
    Ric, get off the fence. I saw you're looking for a black one... Natural is the new black!

    Sorely tempted....would make a great mate for my 55-94 and 55-02. I actually like the stock pups / pre over & above the mods some folks have undertaken.

    Nice. Actually, you gave me a good idea. I know it's a long shot, but there is a trade I'd contemplate, which is for a 55-94. The deal I was working on fell through.

    So there you have it: how about my 55-01 + cash for your 55-94?
