I really like this bass -- check out the many threads on Lakland Skylines and you'll know why. But I've bought myself a Dingwall Afterburner 5, I have a Roscoe fretless 5 waiting in the wings, and I'm really running out of room and time to play all the basses I have. This is an absolutely mint Lakland Skyline 55-02 bass. The finish is black, the fretboard is maple, all the other details are available on Dan's website. The strings are on the bass are a new set of Laklands, so you won't have to worry about buying new strings for a while. Comes with a nice Levy gigbag. This is a great bass. If you're interested, I'll throw in a copy of the "Stingray vs. Lakland Shootoff" CD. Price is 850 + insured UPS shipping (at cost). Pictures available at: Lakland Skyline 55-02 FYI, all the instruments at that site are up for sale, so feel free to contact me about any of the others that might interest you.
