Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by WalWarrior, Feb 21, 2014.

  1. Price:
    ***LOWER PRICE***

    THIS INSTRUMENT IS FOR SALE ONLY! I have way too many basses and need to thin the herd. This is a US Lakland 44-07 with two Chisonic Humbuckers with the coil tap option. It was previously owned by Ed Friedland, his sig is on the back of the Headstock! It's
    seafoam green (obvious to the naked eye) with matching headstock. The body is alder, the neck is maple, board is rosewood. 22 frets that have been dressed by Ed Reynolds,
    the guy that taught Lakland how to do fretwork. Three band LH-3 preamp, passive tone control, hipshot Detuner key (also have the regular tuner). It was the 2nd 44-07 to be built with the Chisonics. She weighs in at 8.5 lbs, with a 1 5/16 nut width. It's a very versatile and powerful bass. And it's in excellent condition. Comes with Hardshell case. $2900.00 shipping included CONUS lower 48 -

  7. Hey thanks guys - This bass is a beast. Truly awesome. Ed lights her up in his videos, he's a true badass. I used this bass playing classic stuff ( Kansas, Boston, Zepp, even some Who,) - normally I'd use the Alembic for OX, this bass just kills. Pains me to sell her, time to thin the herd. Other projects happening I need to repurpose funds. I want to see this bass go to someone who will play her as she deserves. Whoever ends up with this won't regret it. A truly awesome instrument!

    Man, i opened this because it was pretty close to what I've been looking for (a 4-94 in a pastel). But this is a 44-07 due to the pickups. Still a sweet bass for sure.
  10. Thanks for the kind words - This bass truly rocks, it just pains me because I'm not playing live as much these days and to have an instrument like this just sitting in her case is a damn shame. Someone in the TB community could make good use of her I'm sure. If she doesn't go, then maybe it'll be a sign I keep her for a while. This is truly a remarkable instrument. It'd be awesome if she could go to a player who could utilize all she offers.

    Tyler!!!! Glad to see you are (hopefully) feeling better!

    this is a really cool bass and I would venture to guess you would like it as much /better than a 44-94.....
  12. Yeah man, and "Cult of personality" sounds pretty sweet on this....
  13. Lowered price - This is a fantastic bass in Primo condition. I lowered the price and I'll eat the shipping. Thanks for looking!
  14. Price lowered to $2900.00 shipped. If this doesn't move I'll be glad to keep her. She's a fantastic instrument! The Chisonics Kill!

    Thinking about this bass all night. I just ordered a custom GARZ and it's being made now, but this bass is sweet. Wondering how I can swing it...
  18. It is a very sweet bass. Sounds killer. Plays effortlessly. I did the same thing. I had a dream about it when it was Ed Friedland's. I knew I had to have it. If you pick this up, you won't regret it. Take care - D
  19. This is a beast of a bass! Still available.

    Wow! That is a beautiful bass! And worked on by Ed Reynolds himself- for those of you who don't know who he is, rest assured that anything he puts his hands on is first rate- I own two instruments made by Ed- a bass and a Strat (seafoam green, no less!), and they are absolutely world-class instruments. Seems to me that this bass is a steal at the asking price, WalWarrior- can I trade you my Saturn Ion for it? I'll even throw in a new ignition key!
