Lakland Bass Guitars

Classic Series 44-60

The Classic Series 44-60 is a US built passive “J” bass, with the design, build quality and Lakland pickups of the USA Series 44-60 – but at a significantly lower price. Available finishes and options are limited.

  • Affordable, US built, passive J-bass offering features of our high-end USA Series 44-60
  • Alder body with choice of Maple or Rosewood fingerboard
  • Available Hipshot Bass Xtender (D-Tuner)

The USA Classic Series 44-60 is simply offered with an Alder body with an Aged White (“Mint”) or Black pickguard and a choice of straight grain Maple or Rosewood fingerboard.

To help celebrate our 25th anniversary we are now offering all US Classic Series instruments in 17 different high-gloss or semi-gloss finishes through the end of the year!

All Classic Series instruments come with a hard shell case.
