    My story about the past 15 months:
    Some people eat when they feel stress. I buy gear.
    I felt lots of stress in 2020, hence, I went gear crazy. The interior of my house has become untenable. It's time to try to normalize my gear collection and do some purging.
    For Landing Basses, this 34" scale is unusual. What makes it so special are the 2 Hammon Dark Star pickups. When I received the bass last year it had 2 Guild Bi-sonics. What!?!? The Dark Stars were in the case neatly bubble-wrapped and in beautiful condition. Out went the Bi-sonics, in went the Dark Stars. Much better. Fat. This bass is neither Jazz Bass nor P-Bass. It's a little bit of both. Quite unique. In very good condition, but not perfect. The rest of this listing is copied from my currently running REVERB listing.
    I prefer a sale, but would entertain an acoustic guitar, particularly a baritone.
    $1,600 + split shipping in CONUS only.

    Model: Landing L4T jazz bass
    (anyone who knows Mr. Jimmy Wilson's basses knows they are top notch) Extremely rare bass featuring Fred Hammon Dark Star pickups!!
    Condition: If I'm being critical, 8/10 for small little dings and donks on the bass. Typical tiny superficial finish cracks at the neck pocket. Largest ding is on the bridge side under the strap button. Frets are full of life, I'll say "as new," neck has no twist, truss rod turns easily and beautifully.
    Weight: 9.2 Lbs on my accurate digital scale, though it feels lighter if that makes sense
    Scale: 34
    Body: Alder Color: translucent white
    Fingerboard: a beautiful piece of Rosewood with some gorgeous striping
    Hardware: Hipshots and Gotoh
    Pickups: Authentic and rare Hammon Dark Stars
    Electronics are the classic Volume, Volume, Tone
    Strings: Brand new set DR Black Beauties!
    Case is beat up a bit but functions perfectly.

    I had the absolute pleasure of having this bass in hand for a couple weeks before an estate sale as it belonged to a dear friend who passed away. He had amazing taste - this bass looks, plays and sounds incredible. Nothing, absolutely nothing comes close to a pair of Darkstars.
    lala, woodyng2 and Jason Hollar like this.

    Nice Dreadnought could work too. Particularly Guild, Gibson, Iris, Yairi
