    Greetings TB! I’m clearing out a TREMENDOUS amount of gear after collecting far too much over the last 8 years. Please feel free to check out all of the other items I have listed as well.

    Up for sale here is a Lakland Skyline Darryl Jones 5 (DJ5) in the black sparkle finish with matching headstock. This is the earlier version, but I’m uncertain exactly in what year it was made. I have owned it for just over 8 years after originally purchasing it here on TB. I believe it is an ash body with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, with pearl blocks and binding. Scale length is 35”. It has the Aero single coils and the John East J-retro preamp. Condition is excellent to near mint, with only some minor finish swirling/light scratches on the back and one small pinhead size indention on the back of the bass, all of which is very difficult to photograph. None of the swirling goes through the top coat, as best as I can tell. I did modify the pick guard to the white pearl shown, and I’m also including the original white and a black pearl. Weight is 11 lbs. by the bathroom scale, and it has the tone to justify it. Includes a Sadowsky type case in excellent condition.

    Full original specs are here:

  2. I put Aero pickups in my Custom Shop Jazz bass. These pickups really do the jazz bass growl when you beat on the strings. My all time fav jazz pickup.

    As the new owner of this bass, I can say that the combination of the John East preamp and the Aero pickups is totally KILLER! Something about the combination of the preamp and the pickups really opens up the dynamics and expressiveness.

    Thanks, bassbuddha!
