    Here we have a 2004 Skyline 55-02 in a gorgeous Candy Apple Red. The neck has been replaced with a new 2014 Plek’d neck & sports all chrome Lic Hipshot tuners. This is one has killer a neck, thin smooth & fast. One of the best Lakland 5 string necks I’ve played, seriously. This also has the all original to the bass US Bart/Bart electronics & sounds amazing. Hardly a swirl on this beauty, looks like it’s barely been played & with the new neck it’s like a case queen. There’s a small area on the upper horn next to the neck where with just the right angle you can kinda see the grain pattern under the paint. I’ve seen this on a few of the early Skylines, barely noticeable just need to put that out there.

    Swap ash body
    Maple fretboard
    Bart/Bart electronics
    Hipshot Ultralite tuners (not the all chrome shown)
    Dunlop strap buttons
    Weighs 9.8 lbs
    Ships in a HSC

    $1050 Shipped, sorry no trades, Paypal or money order

    might be interested in talking about bass...Sold a bass and the new owner should get it by tueday....I want to see that he really likes it. Yours seems unique and I love the early ones!

    Was the neck replaced recently? Perhaps I'm reading the serial number incorrectly, or maybe I just don't know enough about the earlier Skylines, but to me the serial number on the neck puts this bass as a 2014 model.The Bartolini electronics, however, would make this a pre-2007...

    Gorgeous bass regardless!
