Lakland Bass Guitars

USA Series 55-64 "Vintage P"

The USA Series 55-64 “Vintage P” captures the rich and defined power of those great early basses that revolutionized the low-end world, making it one of the most popular classic-style bass guitars of all time. Made of solid Ash with a reinforced Rock Maple neck, and equipped with one of our amazing custom-wound hybrid split pickups, the 55-64 delivers the thump, punch, and drive that define vintage bass tone. If you’re looking for the best of vintage style, classic tone, and modern performance, then you’re going to love playing a 55-64.

  • Features the legendary Lakland 35″ scale for taut B string with amazing depth and power
  • Optional second “J” style pickup at bridge position for more range and sound variation
  • Upgrade to Lakland CS Series Chi-Sonic pickups for warm, rounded bottom, detailed mids, and a smooth, natural high end.

All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.
