    Long time lurker/buyer, first time poster.

    I am looking to thin the herd as I have a few beautiful instruments that no longer see the light of day. They are too nice to live in their case so hoping they can go to someone that shows them the love they deserve...Plus won't allow myself to buy anything new until I decrease the collection :)

    Lakland Hollowbody Skyline: $975 -> $900 -> $850 -> $825 NOW
    Up next is a gold metallic lakland skyline hollowbody. This is the original line with Barolini pickups (not the chi-sonics). Currently strung with flatwounds, light weight, and brings the thump. Comes with original hardshell case which is in great condition. Controls are volume and tone for each Bartolini pickup, 3-way pickup switch, humbucker/single-coil toggle. Includes case candy.

    Full disclosure, there are a few marks, though nothing affects playability and should be shown in photos.

    Modulus Vintage Jazz: SOLD
    First up is my 2001 Modulus VJ. It has an upgraded spalted maple top, active Bartolini preamp (NTBT, I believe), Bartolini pickups, and the rear routed modern control layout. Just brought it into Guru guitars in Raleigh to have set up and plays like butter. (new strings) I don't know the exact weight, but a bit heavy (around 10.5 lbs, I suspect, can get exact number if interested). I got this while in high school and always kept the best care of it.

    Nut: 1.5"
    Scale Length: 34"
    Fretboard: Phenolic
    Preamp: Bartolini NTBT (Vol., Blend, Bass, Treble)
    Pickup: Bartolini
    Top: Spalted Maple
    Frets: 21
    Hardshell case included (above average condition; I'm from Hawaii so it has gone through the airlines a few times)

    Full disclosure, 1-2 screws show some tarnish/rust and the tuning keys show slight tarnish, otherwise seems to be in excellent condition. Should be in the pictures. Lastly, I had this signed by Victor Wooten when he came to Hawaii. Includes case candy

    (The photos were taken before the restring, so don't worry about string condition, and some were taken with older iphone. I can get more or better photos if needed)


    I am open to consider trades too (+/- cash if required).

    If you have any questions, want more photos, or anything else that may come up, please hit me up and I will do my best :)

    thanks for looking!

    Nice Modulus. Does it have a truss rod?

    It does have a truss rod, adjustable at the neck pocket on the body. Should be viewable in the photos, and have the allen wrench in the case.
