    the serial number is imprinted on the headstock. I was mistaken, this bass was actually made in ‘99.

    I have a 1998 Lakland 4-94 that looks nearly identical to this one. If you're looking for an incredible bass, this is the one.

    Some insight on this gorgeous bass that I keep looking at, even though I shouldn’t because I have a wedding to pay for: The Bartolini pups and preamp from the late 90s are just as incredible as the 1st year Barts. They didn’t get dark sounding until the “recipe change” sometime around 2002-ish. And, even the so-called dark Barts have lots of fans.

    I friggin love the look, and had a 4-76 in the same color with the same beautiful birdseye! Ugh! Someone buy this and ease my suffering!

    I wish you still had the black 44 51 to trade me... I still think about that bass all the time... ;)

    Ugh... why don’t you squirt lemon in my eye while you’re at it! That’s another great bass that I’ll never be able to replace!

    Gorgeous. I have two ‘98’s, one with a maple board and one with a rosewood board that are my go to’s. GLWTS.
    BTW, I’m in NC as well.

    Lack of response is making me start to reconsider selling and just hold onto it...
