    I bought this here about a year ago and now I'm letting her go.

    Big Black Swamp-ash body, Fralin Single Coil pickups...

    Perfect Neck profile...and an extremely tight neck joint

    The combination of ash body and singles on this bass = punch & growl all night long... it nails the classic jazz bass sound dead on. It's balanced, with a great presence in the low end and sweet singing highs. The Fralin pickups are clear and bright, without being brittle...The bass simply has a beautiful full, warm sound.

    I'm convinced that Lakland does Fender better than Fender does. The new American Standards are just a little better than in recent previous years but when you play this bass it just sounds and feels right...
    Comes with a hard roadrunner case.
    $850.00 shipped conus

    It looks to have more of a 60's pickup spacing than 70's?

    I'm currently playing a Geddy Jazz. Can anyone compare the string spacing and neck width between the JO4 and the Geddy? I'd love to pick up a Lakeland but I really like the feel of the Geddy neck as I have smaller hands.

    Joe, that's one nice bass there. I'm thinking about finding a home for it.

    Thanks! Love to sell it thats for sure. Need the money for other things now. It is quite a small neck, you should have no problem with it.

    I need to sleep on this decision. Hope it's still available in the morning.

    JO's are sweet basses & the black ones don't come up for sale too often. Wish I'd never sold mine. I'd take this over a Geddy any day. Someones gonna be real happy with this!

    Sorry, dude! I have a lot of karma built up from religiously observing order-of-PM's in my own sales...:)

    When I get back on my feet, this one may go on the block again. You'll be the first to know!
