New Bass For Me

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by chaoslord, Apr 28, 2003.


  1. Well I came across a deal I couldn't pass up today and low and behold I am the new owner of a Lakland Skyline 55-02.

    Ash body, 3 color sunburst, rosewood board, US Bartolini's. Life is good.

    I figure I got a steal at the $650 w/case I payed for it, considering it is flawless.:bassist:

    I am still on the hunt for something high end, but this cured my craving for something with high end tone at a low end price.

    I will post pics as soon as my guitar player emails them to me since they are residing on his digital camera at the moment.


    Edited because I am a dork and said it was a 55-01 when it is actually a 55-02.

    All of the above sounds good. Really, really good. :D Congrats on the new beast, and have fun with her bud.
     
  3. Thanks Kirby.

    So far she is a blast. I would have prefered a maple board, but hey beggers can't be choosers right?:bawl: :D

    Damn straight. If you had the option of getting the maple board, it probably would have cost you an extra buck or so for them to get it in, so your pretty lucky bud. Congrats again on what you got ;)

    Dude,

    You are a thief. You can clear your conscience (and your soon to be criminal record) by selling me that bass for $680. You'd make a tidy litlle profit there, too. ;)

    Peace,

    James
