    Greetings fellow bassists,

    I have a Lakland Skyline 55-02 Deluxe Spalted Maple w/ Laurel Fingerboard up for sale.

    I played this at NAMM, and really wanted to try it on the scene, so I ordered one. After about a month of gigging, what can I say about it, it's an amazing bass. Has a great slap tone, and wide variety of finger style tones. I used this bass with IEM for 2 weeks, and it never lost it's tone. Amp or no amp, you will love this bass. If you are wondering why I am selling, well it's because my student loan. I will take a hit on price since I drove it off the lot. You pay $85 shipping in the U.S.

    Hear are some specs via the Sweetwater website. This all checks out too btw.
