    Selling my black with rosewood Lakland Skyline 5501 5 string bass. It's been upgraded with Nordstrand Big Splits pickups, and an Audere Classic 3 band preamp. If you've never played a Lakland, these is the best 5 string bass necks out there..

    Here's how it all breaks down.

    $500 - Lakland Skyline 55-01 ($850 new)
    $200 - Nordstrand Big Splits ($260 new)
    $100 - Audere Classic VBTMB ($140 new)
    -------
    $800 ($1250 new)

    For the whole thing...
    $800 shipped - and I'll throw in a Fender Deluxe double gig bag. What a deal! Make me an offer...

    p.s. - I'll take Yoda off and clean things up, unless you want me to leave him :)

    I like those mods. What is on your trade-ar? And as a public service I'll go ahead and ask...what's it weigh?

    Thanks! They've worked out pretty well!

    As for trades - I really need cash plus trade. Interests:
    Sadowsky Onboard J preamp
    High end 5 string jazz pups (Nordstrand, Delano, Sadowsky, etc...)
    A good hard shell case that will fit a 35"
    A good bass overdrive pedal...
    Not another bass... probably.
    Have another offer?

    In my highly un-scientific bathroom scale test, it's around 10 pounds. Definitely feels lighter - my 55-60 is 11.4 lbs, and this one feels much much lighter. I'll try to get a better measurement...

    Bumpity bump bump. Wouldn't it be nice to have a NBD by the end of the week? These necks are incredible, and I'm kind of disappointed that I can't put these pickups in my new bass... Of course, the router may come out if someone wants to opt for the stock electronics and save a bit of $$ :thumbsup:
