    I''ve had this Lakland for about a year. Yep, super rare. Was owned by a bass player for a very famous artist. Prior owner bought it direct from Lakland with Barts, then went back to them after a while and had them put in the Dark Stars. It's got a few nicks and bumps, but nothing insane. Weighs about 9 lbs. I don't think the case is original, looks to be a rectangular, TKL-ish one and has been around the block (or the world) a bit, still has the prior owners name on it.

    SOLD

    Send me a PM if interested....

    I wish this had been kicking around a few months ago!

    Played one exactly like this in NY when I was looking and the owner would not sell it. Sounded really nice.

    Thanks, guys!
    I'm good friends with Fred Hammon, and given how rare these are, I might come to my senses and keep it. I have a couple of other cool axes that I might sell instead....

    I'd consider selling something else. That was a special run of basses and I'm not just being a fanboy here.

    It's more plum in person, right?

    No, it's CAR, just a really deep red. Picture is pretty accurate.

    I had a gold skyline with the barts,and even though i liked it a lot,thought it lacked "personality".
    This one i bet has that in spades....the color is great,and i've only ever heard great things about darkstar pickups.....

    All PMs replied.
    Got a more precise weight -- 8 lbs, 11.5 oz.
    It's raining here, will have to wait for better light for mor pix.
    Btw, I have a crazy day job. I don't sit at a computer, at work. I also can't monitor my TB account by phone 24/7 since I am often driving, or in very intense meetings. It might take me a while to get back to your PM. It's not that I don't care about your questions, or don't want to sell the bass, it's just that I simply do not have the opportunity to reply quickly sometimes. So, please, have some patience and I will get back to you and answer your questions. Thanks.
