    Up for grabs is this absolutely smoking Lakland Skyline DJ5 (Daryl Jones Signature) that I've made some great upgrades to. These basses are true workhorses and have great styling, super comfortable ergonomics and incredible focus and tone out of the box, but I added a set of hum cancelling Nordstrand NJ5FS pickups and an East J-Tone preamp. The result is amazing versatility and a range of killer vintage and modern tones.

    I've played a bunch of Skylines, and some are definitely better and more resonant/focused than others. This is a VERY good one. I wouldn't sell it unless I really needed to. Fairly light weight, super focused, balances great, really nice maple fingerboard, and basically mint. I cant find any real blemishes/dings/scratches etc.. Frets are great, action is super low with no buzzing.

    I did a review of the remarkable J tone preamp for Bass Musician Magazine here.

    Included in this sale with the bass is:
    • the Nordstrand NJ5FS Pickups
    • the stock Lakland Hanson pickups
    • The East J-tone preamp (installed)
    • the stock passive harness
    • the new East Fender/vintage style knobs (installed)
    • the original East knurled metal knobs
    • Dunlock Straplocks
    • Lightweight hard case
    Price is $1250 shipped

    NO trades, sorry.

    Man, if I hadn't just dumped a bunch of money in PA gear, I'd be all over this. Hate I sold the DJ5 I had a year or so ago. Ever who snags this beauty is going to have one helluva great bass.

    I've owned a couple of these and they are amazing instruments - even stock.

    This is the best price I've seen on one with such high quality upgrades. GLWTS!

    Thanks very much! This is a serious banger of a bass for the $$. Boutique sound and playability for production pricing.
