USA Series 55-60 (Vintage J)
The 55-60 has the same “updated classic” tone as our original 44-60, and features Lakland’s legendary balanced tonality along with a 35 inch scale for pronounced bottom end. When you talk about clarity, tautness and tone in regards to the low B, you’re talking about our passion! Graphite re-enforcement… quarter-sawn Maple neck… it’s all there, served up by dual vintage voiced single coil Lakland pickups, hand fabricated and wound with exact tolerances in our Chicago shop.
- Standard Model features Swamp Ash or Alder body
- Available Mother of Pearl, Abalone or Ebony block inlays
- Optional onboard Lakland LH3 3-band EQ preamp option
- Add a set of Lakland Chi-Sonic single coil pickups and make your 55-60 a J-Sonic!
