LAKLAND 44-94

Lakland 4-strings are among the most well-built instruments on the market. The feel and look of our Lakland 4-string basses is instantly familiar to anyone who is a fan of traditional aesthetic. But these instruments have a unique personality-drawing on the best aspects of classic basses and updating them with modern playability and construction that is second to none. Able to emulate the tones of many popular basses, the Lakland 4-strings maintain a tonal character all their own. The body design of the Lakland 4-string models allows for the use of almost any pickup on the market to achieve a wide variety of tones-as requested by customers. All Lakland 4-strings are 34" scale with fingerboards available in birdseye maple, rosewood or ebony.

The 44-94 was our very first bass. Configured with a split MM pickup in the bridge position and a single J-style pickup at the neck. All coils are independently humbucked. There is a splitter switch for the bridge pickup.
