Postby Steve in NM » Thu Apr 12, 2012 5:21 pm

I'm looking to sell my Lakland US Hollowbody Deluxe. 1.6" neck at the nut, 34" scale, rosewood board w/ birdseye maple dots. Back and sides are mahogany, top is flame maple. This is a true hollowbody - no center block. They thicken the top at the bridge to make it able to attach the bridge. Two Bartolini double coil PUs can run double or single coil.
Asking $2,300 plus shipping. Current MSRP is $4,900, so thats well below half of list. Its in very good condition - only real flaw is a chip in the clear coat on the headstock about the size of my little fingernail. This is a really special bass with a wonderful voice and drop dead gorgeous looks. Original harshell case is included.

I love love love my Skyline. Nuthing cooler or better suited for my more traditional blues gigs....... along side my '66P of course. [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif] EVERYTIME I bring it out I enjoy positive comments on the tone. Beautiful bass Steve. Good luck.

Soory - no trades - gotta raise some cash. Might be putting my Lakland JO on the block as well - the active teal green metallic w/ matching headstock. Funky C owned it once - did you have it for a while, Steve?

Well, I sold the Hollowbody and my 66 P-bass to a local vintage dealer. Got a fair enough price and didn't have to deal with dickering over price, tire kickers and shipping hassles. I'll be keeping the JO and its matching teal green Glaub (both US). Thanks for everyone's interest and good wishes.

Links: Yanno, you live a very short time and then you spend a very long time dead so eat great food, love extra hard, hold on for the ride, and play some bass along the way.

I remember seeing and playing that HB years ago in ABQ! Gorgeous sunburst. You held on to it for quite a while, Steve!
