    I notice the example Bass Direct have for sale doesn't have through-body stringing like yours does. Was that an optional extra?

    Lakland USA 55-Dual J

    Delano pickups, and a John East DJ Retro preamp. Although it didn't really need it, I had a separate battery battery compartment routed into the back of the bass. The John East preamp is brilliant, and no modification is required - it just drops straight in.

    Lakland USA 55-Dual J

    For sale is my 2015 Lakland USA 55-Dual J 5-string in tobacco burst. I bought it on here a few months ago (the original sale listing link is at the bottom of this post) and added a John East Uni-Pre, but the passive pots and knobs are included in the sale, as is the Lakland lined case shown in the pictures. It's in really nice condition, with only a couple of small, barely visible dinks on the body, and a chip in the finish at the edge of the control cavity, as shown in the pictures. The neck is completely unmarked. It's light, resonant, balances beautifully, and sounds fabulous. The only reason I'm selling is I already have a DJ5 (with quite a few modifications, admittedly) and I can't justify keeping both, so the more valuable of the two is going. I've spent out a couple of hundred on the East pre, but I'm just asking for the same price as it was listed for previously, £1650 plus shipping. A great price for a USA Lakland, I'm sure you'll agree. You're welcome to collect, I'm just outside Woking in Surrey. Sorry, but I'm not looking for any trades. Specs: Lakland Vintage Single coil pickups. 35'' scale, 19mm spacing at the bridge. Alder body, rosewood fingerboard. 1.79'' (45.3mm) nut width. 3.88 kg (8.56 lbs).

    2 x Bergantino HS210 cabs and covers - price reduced

    From what I can see, the main differences are that the HDN210 has neodymium instead of standard magnets, the frequency response is less than the HS210 (12khz instead of 15khz with the HS), the cabs are tolex as opposed to carpet covered, they do weight about 20lbs less, but cost about £1000 each. Specs here: https://bergantino.com/product/hdn210-loudspeaker/

    Why hasn't this sold?? Great basses. I'd be interested, but I already have one, y'see... 🙂 Maybe consider offering shipping as an option? GLWTS.

    Bl**dy GAS !

    Holy crap. My list only goes up to a mere 121 basses over 40 years, and I thought I was a lost cause! There's no point in me publishing my list, I'd just look stupid! 😁

    Roger passed away a couple of years ago, but the business is still trading under the same name on eBay, fxguitarman1. They made a very nice custom see-thru plate for my 55-94 a year or so back.

    NBD - Lakland content

    That's a really lovely bass - as heretical as this opinion may be to some, I've always thought Lakland's P basses look even classier than the original design they're modeled on!
