Lakland Bass Guitars

USA Series DJ-4 (Darryl Jones Signature)

This is the fix for your tone Jones – a US made version of the Darryl Jones Signature bass. If you know Darryl’s discography, then you know he’s played with the heavyweights…Miles Davis, Sting, Madonna… The Rolling Stones… and needs a heavyweight bass to do the job.

  • Available Abalone or Ebony block inlays
  • Available onboard LH3 preamp or DJ-Retro preamp
  • Available Hipshot Bass Xtender (D-Tuner)

The US Series Darryl Jones Signature bass looks similar to our 44-60 model, but has more curves to its contouring, and dramatic cutaways that add to its vintage styling. Darryl’s bass is fitted with a pair of passive single coil pickups specially designed by Lakland. Three knobs control the tone: Bridge Volume, Neck Volume and Tone. Mother of Pearl inlays and white binding standard. Matching headstock color standard. Available black neck binding or unbound. Fretless version is available with lined or unlined Ebony fingerboard.

All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.

“While… similar to the company’s Vintage J 44-60 and 55-60 models, the new Signature models offer more curve to their contouring and cutaways that Lakland says adds vintage styling.”
