More pro gear priced for those of us without a road crew. The 44-02 has an active punch that will drive your sound clearly through any mix, but is also subtle and refined to fit well into any playing situation.

The pickups and onboard preamp on the 44-02 are the same configuration as you'll find on our US-made 4-94. The electronics are powered by a single 9-volt battery that can be changed by removing a simple snap-on battery cover - no screws to lose!

The 44-02 doesn't care if your gig is at a local tavern or the local arena. It pushes 100% pure tone every night.

All Lakland 4s feature open-back, tapered-shaft Hipshot tuners. The tapered shafts force strings to lie flat against the headstock for improved pressure over the nut. An optional Hipshot Bass Xtender key is also available.

Features

REINFORCED HEAD

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

FINGERBOARDS

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.

NECK FEATURES

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.

BOLTS

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

FRETS

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.

STRAP BUTTONS

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

CUTAWAY

Deep cutaway allows full access to the 22nd fret.

BODY

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

PICKUPS

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

BRIDGE

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

STRING THROUGH

Dual access strings-through body or bridge design.

ELECTRONICS

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.
