Lakland Bass Guitars

USA Series Decade 4

Now available online for the first time – the bass designed in 2004 to celebrate Lakland’s first ten years. The USA Series Decade 4 incorporates some different design elements for Lakland; it has a unique body shape, compact, but balanced (not a “neck diver”), and features single coil Lakland Chi-Sonic pickups for superior “punch” with higher output and bright upper midrange articulation than a standard single coil.

  • Available Mother of Pearl, Abalone, or Ebony block inlays
  • Available onboard LH3 preamp option
  • Available Hipshot Bass Xtender (D-Tuner)

The USA Series Decade 4 is available standard with passive Volume, Volume, Tone control layout/configuration, and we are able to install our LH3 Preamp into this bass for expanded tone shaping and even more output.

The Decade 4 is available in a choice of Swamp Ash, Alder, or Mahogany body. Other features include choice of white or black neck binding and matching headstock color in most finishes. Fretless version available with lined or unlined fingerboard.

All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.
