    Sweet 2002 Lakland Skyline Jerry Scheff in Inca Silver.
    Hard to find these days, and this one is near perfect.
    One little ding at the headstock, and a couple of tiny scratches on the chrome pickup covers is all I can find.
    Made in Korea, 9 lbs, comes in the foam core case in the pix.
    Looking to get $950 shipped/insured from Los Angeles.

    PRICE DROP: $900 as of 2/9

    (If you think the newly-legal recreational weed here in Cali has gone to my head, please feel free to make me an offer, but please be polite and patient (see below)).

    I’m also game for trades, but I’m picky, and it needs to be for something I'll use, like.....

    -vintage Fender basses
    -weirdo Gibson stuff
    -cool guitars (electric & acoustic)
    -tube amps (guitar or bass, I loves all kinds (Fender, Marshall, Sunn, Gibson, Bedrock, Ampeg))
    -Normandy guitars & basses

    You get the picture. I tend to be into more traditional stuff and don't have much use for a $5000 Fodera, but if you have something you think I might like, try me. Worst I can say is no.

    I can trade up or down, and can generally figure out a way to meet anywhere in SoCal if you are in this area.

    Please make offers via PM.

    I have a day job that is abso-f'n-lutely bananas. There are times when Ijust can't reply to PMs quickly. I'm often stuck in a small room for several hours with a bunch of rabid attack dog lawyers who will rip my arse to shreds if I don't pay attention. Yes, that's an exaggeration, but not by much (they probably aren't *actually * rabid, but they act like it...) So, if you send me amessage, and I don't get back to you in 12 minutes, it's not because I hate you and your bass, I probably haven't seen it yet. I'll reply to everybody, but it might take a bit 'cuz I gotta do my job.....

    Alrighty then, make me an offer!

  3. Hey Duke nice to see one of these without that hideous aftermarket pickguard. I'd love to Tractor one. Someday I need to pull that virgin Hammie I have stashed and do something worthwhile with it. Course I like to "Tractor" rabid lawyers too.

    I have a Scheff 5 string from 2002... It is a remarkable sounding bass!

    Mine is LPB ....but I really really like these in silver... For some reason I think they look so so so classy in silver!

    The quality of these is awesome!

    I GAS'd for one of these so much back in the day. Tone is super awesome on these and playability, is of course, amazing with the Lakland necks.

    Wait a minute. Just zoomed in on the headstock pic. That nut looks perfect and those are rounds.
    What the hell black rounds?
    I’ve been out of the string game for a while!
