6034 in Ocean Turquoise

First full scale J Bass made by D. Lakin Basses. Made for the 2020 NAMM Show. Features a beautifully flamed quartersawn maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Body is lightweight ash with a Nitro-Cellulose Ocean Turquoise. I am listing it as a demo as it has been demoed at NAMM and by me at home (I can’t keep my hands off it !). It is just about perfect. It has Pyramid Gold strings on it.

Demo price – $3450
Includes choice of SKB pro case or mono bass sleeve.
