Lakland 55-94 Deluxe - SOLD
£2200
Woking

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

NOW SOLD

For sale is my Lakland 55-94 Deluxe, trans amber with a beautiful flame maple top, and a maple neck with a stunning birdseye maple fingerboard. It's an early one, the serial number (55xx) dating it to 1998. I bought it from its previous owner in the States a number of years ago, and it came with Aguilar pickups and a Mike Pope preamp already installed. I also have the original Bartolini pickups and NTMB-L preamp and pots, which are included in the sale. The bass comes complete with a G&G lined hardcase.

For a 22-year old bass, it's in great condition, but in the interests of full disclosure there are a few small dings here and there which I've tried to show in the photographs. It's been well looked after, so it's in very good order for its age. At only 3.9kg, it's light for a five string, and balances on a strap beautifully. It's 35" scale, with 19mm spacing at the bridge, and through body or bridge stringing. The see-thru scratchplate is removable.

Oh man dont do it... These early 5594,s are so special. I have 1999 5594 Deluxe....The golden era of Lakland without a doubt.  They dont offer 5594,s with the birdseye fret boards any more without a huge £ charge. That quilted maple is pretty insane also.. one of a kind proper Lakland 5594 you have there.

Wow, man, you are massively tempting me with your Laklands, really love the blue one also, but I prefer a maple fretboarded, and couldn't afford to collect more than needed...  and here it is,  my wish is fulfilled.. :DDD 

 love the sound but I had some 35" basses recently, and can't decide it  would be comfortable...

      Up for sale is my really exceptional bass US Lakland 44-64 PJ with the Jazz bass neck profile (nut 1.5" = 38mm).
      Serial number BG20 means that is the first year of Bob Glaub - 44-64 production (2001) and it is supposed to be the first PJ in the US Lakland production history.
       
      Alder body, maple neck in quarter-sawn cut (I have never seen such a nice and even cut), rosewood fingerboard, Lake Placid Blue colour, Lindy Fralin pickups, Hipshot tuning machines and special designed bridge with two options of strings installation - "through body" and classic "on bridge", Elixir nickel wound strings, original pickup cover and GATOR foam case included.
      Weight 4,3kg. There are couple of scratches and dings on the body but the bass is in great condition at all. This bass sounds really amazing!!!

      More photos on request. Please - no trade offers!
      Shipping to UK or EU included.

      PRICE REDUCED TO £2250.....
      VIDEO DEMO HERE:
      I'm offering for sale my very rare Lakland 55-76 Deluxe. This bass is the holy grail for Stingray fans who would like a wider string spacing and 35" scale. It has a Teal burst finish over a flame maple top, maple neck with ebony fingerboard, and 19mm spacing at the bridge, with thru-body or bridge stringing. It also has a removable Stingray-style see-thru scratchplate. Weight is 4.3kg.
      I bought it a while back from a guy in the Netherlands as a fretless, and had it fretted by a very skilled luthier who has the distinction of having re-fretted some of Peter Green's guitars, so I knew it was in pretty safe hands. The result was astonishing - the ebony board has such a sheen on it you can literally see your face in it. Not surprisingly, it also plays beautifully, and has that big, fat Stingray sound in spades, with the legendary Lakland B string. The oddity about this particular bass is that it has no serial number - the assumption is that it was made very early on, perhaps even the first or prototype of the model. This would place its date of manufacture at somewhere in the mid-90's, when Lakland was still in its infancy. Although it will certainly be US made, it also doesn't have the usual 'Made in the USA' stamp on the back of the neck, giving more credence to its early manufacture date. The tuners are Hipshot in design, but with no markings. (I have a Lakland 55-94 whose serial number dates it to 1998 that also doesn't have the USA neck stamp, and has the same style of tuners.)
      It's in excellent condition for a 20+ year old bass. There's a small crack in the lacquer next to the neck pocket, and a couple of tiny dings on the body that I've tried to show in the photographs, but otherwise it's in extremely good shape.
      Now we come to the colour. I've tried photographing it with three different cameras, but it always comes out more blue than it appears to the naked eye - in reality it's closer to a Teal Green. Any interested parties are very welcome to pay me a visit to have a closer look at it. I'm near Woking in Surrey, a few minutes from junction 10 of the M25. Sorry, no visitors for now, I'm afraid - perhaps once things have settled down a bit!
      The pickup (although it has no markings that I can see, the consensus seems to be that it's a Seymour Duncan) is wired to a 3-way coil tap switch (parallel, single coil, series switching) with a Bartolini NTMB-L918 3-band preamp with a push/pull volume pot for active/passive switching. I fitted the chrome knobs, but the original black rubberised ones are also included. The bass comes complete with a Hiscox Liteflite case.
      I believe that you can still get this model from Lakland as a special order, but with the build cost, deluxe burst finish, ebony fingerboard, Bartolini electronics, Seymour Duncan pickup, shipping and import duty, it would take several months and you wouldn't get much change out of five grand. Also (and I say this as a huge Lakland fan) in my opinion the older ones are just better made. Taking all that into consideration, the reduced price I'm asking of £2500 £2250 plus shipping is surely an absolute bargain. Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer/Transferwise. Sorry, but I'm only looking for a straight sale, so no trade offers please.

      Hello brothers and sisters,

      I am offering my Skyline Pbass. I bought it used in 2017 on Ebay and was my No.1 bass until recently. Has been gigged a lot but no significant scratches or dents apart from one cca 1cm scratch on the back on the bass and is not visible while playing. Sunburst looks really nice with the black pickguard and it also comes with an original white one. Ash body, comfy neck with 1,75 Inches wide nut, Hipshot ultralites and Lakland  bridge with a string-through-body option.  Brand new ernie ball strings


      600 GBP/700 EUR 
      Located in Prague

      In case of any questions, DM me, I can take more photos if needed.
       
      Price lowered

      Cheers!
