Lakland DJ5 Lake Placid Blue - ***PRICE DROP £900 plus postage***
SW Scotland

Recommended Posts

Excellent condition Lakland DJ5 in Lake Placid Blue.  Bought in 2016 from Stompbox in North London and gigged pretty rarely.  Mainly recorded, hence excellent condition, (one small nick on the headstock).

NB - I kept this bass passive, did not install any preamps etc, stock pickups.  Sounds amazing! 

£900 plus postage.


"The Skyline Series Darryl Jones Signature Model DJ-5 features the same “updated classic” tone as our DJ-4, but is combined with the legendary Lakland 35” scale – the reason all Lakland 5s have such fabulous bottom tone. When you talk about clarity, tautness and tone in regards to the low B, you’re talking about our passion! Graphite reinforcement bars are added for tonal stability and the dual vintage voiced single coil Lakland pickups are hand fabricated and wound with exact tolerances in our Chicago shop.

Looks, ergonomics, playability, and that big bottom tone make this one of Lakland’s most popular and longstanding models."

Used to have one of these, amazing bass for the money!

Yep - me too..

Mine had a lovely neck on it as I recall and sounded just like a Jazz bass should.. Looked the business too, just like this one! 

Anyway, that's enough of my reminiscing..

Thanks! Yeah, incredible bass. Have accumulated too many 5 strings so need to sell this but it's such fun to play and record with.

Don't suppose you still have this? Very much interested. Cheers.

Hi mate.  Sorry for the very slow reply this end!  It is still available yes!

I've been so busy doing family stuff during lockdown I'd forgotten about Basschat completely sorry.

Are you still keen?  DM me if you are. 😀

      I bought this new last year. It's only been used a handful of times because I'm playing bass a lot less now. Beautiful natural finish and solid tone with a nice bit of growl typical of Lakland basses. 
      Collection is preferred, but I can ship at extra cost.
      Feel free to message me with any questions. See below for the official blurb.
      The 44-64 is modelled after the venerable workhorse '64 P bass. One custom-wound Lakland pickup provides a bruising punch and drive that nails the vintage split humbucker tone, sending it through the roof with full voicing and modern energy. The body and 34" scale maple neck have an excellent balance.
      Nut Width: 1.5" Nut Type: Delrin Fret Size: .041/.085" Width at Final Fret: 2.48" 1st Fret Neck Depth: .76" 12th Fret Neck Depth: .94" Fingerboard Radius: 10" Scale Length: 34" Frets: 20 Bridge String Spacing: .78" Neck Wood: Flat-Sawn Rock Maple Body wood: Ash Fingerboard: Fretted Maple Tuners: Hipshot Lisc.

      For sale;
      2200 euros incl shipping cost!!
      USA Lakland 55-94 Deluxe in Trans White. Have an ebony fingerboard, which is a rare option and expensive option.  Built in 2002, with the original Bartolini pickups and 3-band Bartolini preamp, and complete with a Lakland lined hardcase (colour white cream).
      Its sound Amazing... this is my main bass... as new (only 2 small small dings).  At only 3.8kg it's light for a 5, but still balances really well. 35" scale, with Lakland's legendary B string, and excellent consistency across the neck.
      The price incl shipping cost 😉

      Up for sale is this beautiful US made Lakland Joe Osborn, recently known as 44-60 model. 
      Lakland took best features of preCBS jazzes ad combined it with modern features like quartersawn neck with graphite reinforcement, accessible truss rod, high-end Hipshot hardware etc.
      This particular bass it classic of all classics - Olympic white finish on alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard. Neck, as usual with Laklands, is absolute joy to play - profile is great, fingerboard edges are round and oil/wax back feels like and old gloves. Quartersawn here is dead straight and tight, fretboard has beautiful chocolate coloration.
      Bass comes from 2006 (s.n. 425, Lakin era, if that means something) and has Lakland pickups, VT VT controls. Comes with OHSC. Excellent players condition - has some scratches, small dings on the lower part of the body. Not a museum piece, but exactly condition I like - it has mojo of played bass, and you don't have to be afraid like by mint basses
      PM me for more pictures.
      Located in Czech Republic, EU shipping included in the price. Check my feedback.
