BOTH NOW SOLD
I'm only an occasional bass player (and not a very good one at that!) and although I only need 1 bass, I have ended up with more than I need so these need to go...
Both are really nice basses and in summary, the Lakland is a really well sorted bass, with good spec, excellent build quality and lots of versatility from the active eq, and for me as a guitarist, the slim neck and low action makes it really easy to play. The Patrick Eggle brings in the interest factor, hand made in the UK back in 1993 when it was still very much Patrick's company. There aren't many of the Milans around so potentially quite collectable, very classy looking and a really great bass.
Either can be tried and collected from Nottingham, or packed for posting, which if you're not fussed about insurance, I can do for £15.
SOLD - Lakland Skyline 44-01 = £500 £420
In summary this is the Indonesian version of the superb Lakland range - new these range from £800-900, so here's chance to grab a great example at about £350 less than new.
This particular model is the 44-01 finished in sunburst with rosewood fingerboard.
The main spec is:
Body - ash
Neck - maple bolt on with rosewood 'board
Hardware - hipshot tuners and Lakland bridge
Electronics - Bartoloni pickups with active 3 band eq paired with a master volume and blend control
All this adds up to a bass that is comfortable, supremely playable and tonally very versatile.
As an occasional bass player this has had only light use and comes in near mint condition - no dings or scratches. In fact, the only real mark is a tiny bit of a scuff to the tip of the headstock and you might also notice some residue on the tuners where they had film wrapping over them.
The bass comes with a manufacturer's hangtag as shown and I may have a suitable hard case which I can do a good deal on if needed.
