Lakland 5-string basses feature a B-string that is tight, well defined and feels like a natural extension of the instrument - accomplished by combining a 35" scale with the solid anchoring of the string through the body design.

The necks on Lakland?s 55 series basses are slightly narrower than other 5-strings, making them as accessible as they are tonally sound.

All Lakland 5-strings are 35" scale with fingerboards available in birdseye maple, rosewood or ebony.

The 55-94 was our first five-string bass. An MM pickup in the bridge position and a single J-style at the neck. The MM is equipped with a coil splitter.



Reinforced head design provides additional strength at necks' weakest point.


Lakland manufactures three different fingerboards. Our birdseye maple fingerboards feature ebony face dots, while our rosewood fingerboards feature birdseye maple dots. Our ebony fretless fingerboards are available lined, or unlined.


All Lakland necks are manufactured from quarter-sawn maple and feature two graphite reinforcement bars. We have found that these graphite bars help tremendously to minimize dead spots.


The neck is securely bolted to the body using a five-bolt configuration that offers the player unrestricted access to the upper register.


The frets are meticulously installed by Lakland luthiers using exacting tolerances that yield superior playability. Each fret end is hand-filed and, when combined with a subtle round-over on the edge of the fingerboard, created the ultimate in comfort.


Large Dunlop dual design strap buttons are compatible with Straplok systems.


Deep cutaway allows full access to the 22nd fret.


Southern swamp ash body. The Deluxe adds a figured maple top.


Lakland pickups, custom wound in Chicago, provide a wide frequency response and diverse tonal range.


Solid chromed brass bridge plate with all stainless steel parts (saddle, screws, springs) to prevent rust and corrosion throughout life of instrument.


Dual access strings-through body or bridge design.


Internal preamp offers independent cut and boost of bass midrange, and treble. The preamp is extremely versatile and very quiet. Master volume pulls out to defeat internal preamp. Pickup blend control. Bridge pickup coil configuration can be set for a multitude of tonal possibilities.
