    For sale/trade are two GREAT Lakland's......

    The first is a 2008 DJ5 which can be seen here:

    100_1064.

    100_1066.

    It comes with 3 (Count 'em 3!) pickguards - the two shown above and the original white guard.

    That is an additonal $100+ in guards included!

    The Mother of Pearl Blocks are really nice...the picture does not do them justice.

    The J-retro has been removed but it still growls like a lion with the passive set up!

    I am getting rid of it simply because I now have a US JO5 with CHIsonic pickups and a Skyline JO5 - making this bass kind of redundant.

    The other is this 2007 44-02Deluxe (ebony lined) FRETLESS:

    100_0536.

    100_0537.

    This fretless has the Lakland pickups and the LH3 system and has Mwah and Mwah to spare!

    Others here can vouch for the care I give my basses. I would say the DJ is in A+ condition and the fretless is in B++ to A condition due to some scratching on the fretboard from the rounds which are on it now....other than that, it is in GREAT shape!

    What I REALLY want is a 55-02 fretless with a lined ebony board or a 55-94 fretless with a lined ebony board. Unique colors a major plus! Lakland pickups and LH3 preferred...

    Will consider any 55-02/55-94 fretless or any other Lakland fretless (5er only please) trade offer.....can do a one for one or a two for one depending on what you want to trade!

    Will sell either for $975 each (we can work out shipping and cases if you are interested)....

    If I cannot get a fretless, the 44-02D fretless may not be sold/traded as I really need/want a fretless.

    PM me with any questions....

    Peace:

    Doug

    Wow, those are holy moly cheap!
     
  6. I am interested in the DJ5. I have a K5 MTD non USA with a burl top and Norstrand pup upgrade with Audere pre. It's a 5 string I bought it from Brian at his Low End shop. Let me know if you have interest. I paid $950. for it in January but looking for a good Lakland 5er. Thanks,Bill

    I really could, but things are tight right now. I'm also trying to head back to grad school! I's a beautiful fretless (and a Lakland too)!

    I have had some nice trade offers but just not exactly what I am looking for....

    Also - there have been a few "what if" buying inquiries but nothing too commital......

    In other words -BOTH ARE STILL AVAILABLE.....

    I can guarantee you will not find a DJ5 in better shape unless it is brand new......I only play it "once in a while" since it has 6 other Laklands to compete with and it only gets played in Church (seriously).....

    For those of you who are curious it weighs 9 lbs 8 oz. (some one asked last night in a PM)

    Also - except for the scratches from the rounds, the fretless is the same...came to me in excellent condition and will go to you the same way!!

    as mentioned above, we can talk about case options, shipping Paypal (e-check preferred) etc....
