LAKLAND 55-94

Lakland 5-string basses feature a B-string that is tight, well defined and feels like a natural extension of the instrument – accomplished by combining a 35" scale with the solid anchoring of the string through the body design. The necks on Lakland’s 55 series basses are slightly narrower than other 5-strings, making them as accessible as they are tonally sound. All Lakland 5-strings are 35" scale with fingerboards available in birdseye maple, rosewood or ebony.

The 55-94 was our first five-string bass. An MM pickup in the bridge position and a single J-style at the neck. The MM is equipped with a coil splitter.
