[NAMM] New Lakland basses
Lakland will release this autumn two new 4 and 5-string basses at more affordable price points, the 44-14 an 55-14.
The Tobacco Sunburst and Candy Apple Red versions feature a alder body and the Natural finish has a ash body. They all include a quartersawn maple neck with graphite reinforcements, and you can choose between maple fingerboard with black Dot inlays or rosewood with maple Dot inlays.
Both 4 and 5-string basses are equipped with Lakland MM-J pickups (humbucker in bridge position and single coil in neck/middle), a Lakland LH3 preamp with 3-band EQ, Blend and master volume with push/pull function for preamp bypass. A 3-way switch allows for the bridge pickup coil tap. Tuners are Hipshot and the bridge is a Lakland Dual Access.
Scale length on the four string version (44-14) is 34" and nut width is 1.6". These dimensions raise to 35" and 1.81" on the 5-string 55-14.
Both basses are available in three Candy Apple Red, Natural and Tobacco Sunburst finishes. Price of the 44-14 is $2595 and $2775 for the 55-14.
