Lakland Bass Guitars

USA Series Decade 6

To commemorate our 10th anniversary in style, Lakland created the USA built Decade 6, a six string bass with a 30” scale that offers a unique voice with a range between a baritone guitar and a standard bass. Tuned an octave below standard tuning, the Decade incorporates several innovative design elements: a unique body shape, Lakland Chi-Sonic pickups, and a new truss rod wheel for neck adjustments. This is a truly unusual instrument with a wide range of applications that both pros and serious amateurs will find both fun and musically inspirational.

  • Unique six string bass with 30″ scale
  • Lakland Chi-Sonic pickups hand wound in our Chicago custom shop
  • 5-way position switch for an amazing range of tones

All USA Series basses include a hard shell case.

“The resulting tic-tac tone was spot-on with the sound of cowboy film soundtracks that Ennio Morricone made famous in the ’60s, but with noticeably more midrange muscle and bite.”
