    Hello Talkbass!

    It has been such a long time since I've posted here! And such a long time since I've needed to purchase or sell an instrument. I had been traveling for quite some time, mostly in an educational capacity, and never had much of a chance to hold on to any instruments, sadly, so as soon as I returned to the US with my newly minted Master's degree, I immediately replenished my instrument collection with this brand new Lakland Skyline 44-01 with spalted maple top. It was purchased in March 2018 from Sweetwater for $938. The official Lakland case was a separate purchase (used) from the private market.Here's the link from Sweetwater for specs: Lakland Skyline 44-01 Deluxe - 44-01 Spalted, Rosewood

    Unfortunately, it turns out working in the not-for-profit sector and paying off a few debts aren't synonymous, and something has to give. I'm offering up this pristine instrument, including case and strap.

    I'll be sure to return with higher quality photos tomorrow, but I've got two photos here for now.



    The bass is literally unplayed outside of a few settings in my personal house, which is smoke free and air conditioned / heated. No extreme changes in temperature or humidity were experienced! Strings are like new. The handle for the case, which I'll include at no cost, was slightly damaged from the start, and has been replaced with paracord and the original leather strap.

    It has the Bartolini soapbars, active 3-band EQ, and a host of excellent hardware features (high-mass bridge, Hipshot Light tuners) etc.

    While it has been some time, I was a rather active TBer awhile back, including many classified purchases and sales - my account profile should highlight this! I look forward to your questions and any reasonable offers.

    As of now, I'm seeking $600 OBO in the local area. If we had to ship, I'd need to split costs with a shipping service of your choice. I have a personal vehicle, and am willing to travel up to 30 miles from 20017 to meet or deliver.

    Looking forward to your comments and PMs! Thanks for looking, and helping me out in this time of need.

    Could we have a photo of the case/handle fix? I think the bass is beautiful but the 44-01 Bart set up is a bit dated, where the 44-02's have major up grades. Still a great bass, however I am in Wisconsin, and shipping in winter is dicey at best. Thoughts about shipping to Wisconsin?

    I may have posted a reply incorrectly, but I think the bass is beautiful but, the 44-01 is a bit out dated with the 44-02's gaining much needed upgrades. That said I live in Wisconsin so shipping would be a must although dicey in the winter months. Would like some more pics and a picture or two of the re-work on the handle of the after market case. Would you consider shipping?
