Lakland Bass Guitars

USA Series 44-64 (Vintage P)

The 44-64 is modeled after the venerable workhorse ’64 P bass. One custom-wound Lakland pickup provides a bruising punch and drive that nails the vintage split humbucker tone, sending it through the roof with full voicing and modern energy. The body and 34″ scale maple neck have an excellent balance. Standard 1.75” taper measured at the nut is 60’s spec, with a slim front to back profile just like the most comfortable and sought after vintage pieces.

“P&J” option combines a “P” body with an optional “J” neck and adds a “J” bridge pickup.

Other Options…

  • Choice of Swamp Ash or Alder body
  • Available 1.5” “J” taper and 1.6” “tweener”.
  • Available white or black neck binding and/or matching headstock color on most finishes
  • Fretless version available with choice of lined or unlined fingerboard
  • Available Mother of Pearl, Abalone or Ebony block inlays
  • Available Hipshot Bass Xtender (D-Tuner)

All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.
