    For Sale- Lakland USA Joe Osborn- the serial number of #85 gives this one a 1999 build date. This bass was built during the Hugh McFarland Dan Lakin era. "LakLand" Alder body, 3-tone sunburst, tortoise shell pickguard, 8 lbs 13 oz on my scale. Chicago made w/ Lakland US specs - oiled tight grained quarter sawn maple neck with Birdseye maple dots fit to the rosewood fingerboard. The neck feel is amazing. Hip shot reverse gear tuners, single coil Lindy Fralin pickups with stacked knob electronics. Original, no mods and comes shipped with original HSC. I believe the 4460 has replaced this in the current Lakland lineup. Why buy new at $3360 when an instrument like this is available and continues to appreciate in value? Just sayin'.....you might want to make an offer.

    Thank you Spufman - seems everyone wants a flawless vintage bass to display in a glass case. Where are the players?:bassist:

  8. I wonder why this one is still here, especially for this price. One of the first hundred JO basses ever made (hence the signature on the head), very rare and special.

    She's a beauty!

    Does she get noisy (on stage, lighting, EMF,...)?

    This fine instrument is moving in with a gigging player in New Mexico!
