USA Series 55-94
The USA Series 55-94 is Lakland’s original five-string design, featuring our own LH3 quad-coil soap bar pickup in the bridge position and a dual-coil J-style pickup at the neck. The bridge pickup is equipped with a 3 way coil select switch so you can hear all four coils, the neck side coils isolated, or the bridge side coils isolated – a setup that is great for maximum versatility and customizable tones. This incredibly versatile pickup array is matched with our LH3 preamp featuring 3 bands of boost cut EQ, a blend control to mix the 2 pickups, internal midrange frequency select, internal gain trim, and pull passive master volume.
- Available with Swamp Ash or Alder body wood
- Optional Quilted Maple or Flame Maple figured top over Swamp Ash body
- Available Mother-Of-Pearl, Abalone, or Ebony block inlays
The 55-94 is available with either white or black neck binding, and matching headstock color on most finishes. The fretless version of the 55-94 is available with a lined or unlined Ebony fingerboard.
All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.
