OVERVIEW

Top-line Lakland look and feel for an affordable price.

Dual Bartolini MK1 split-coil soapbars are coupled with the MK1 active preamp for an incredible range of tones. It has that deep Lakland cutaway on the high register side of the neck that allows easy access to highest frets for throwing licks on top of your grooves. Best of all, it has the Lakland feel and the Lakland sound. Ash body with standard finish.

Lakland luthiers now do their fret work using Plek technology to assure optimum playability. Plek is a CAD/CAM machine with scanning capability. It was developed to perform high-speed, highly accurate fret dressing, nut and bridge slotting and shaping, and engraving work. When used by an experienced luthier, the Plek machine produces necks with fretwork and action that equal the very best handwork and does it consistently.

I recently bought the 4401 lakland, without ever playing one before, and I was plain amazed, this is by far the best bass I have ever owned and I have dozens including 2 fenders, and a Musicman! The lakland plays better, sounds better, and looks better! Any progressive or rock bass player has to have this bass, the bartolini pickups have amazing growl with great treble to boot, and you can still mimic the sounds of fender and ernie ball, and the feel of the neck is unmatched by any other brand! I suggest anyone willing to spend a few extra bucks should buy this bass!

I was looking for a bass with active electronics to compliment my "64" Fender Precision and German upright. I tried them all and the sound from the Lakeland 44-01 blew me and the various people I work with away. The price was certainly right. Now the bad news. In less then two years the volume pod went and now the main board is fried....Did I get a lemon or are there more problem Lakelands out there? I'm about to find out if Lakeland stands behind it's name....

GREAT Lakland Bass!

By Evanovich

from Milwaukee WI

Great bass for so little money- blows my Peavey T-40 and American Fender Jazz bass out of the water!It's funny to me that other owners on here call them "Lakeland" basses... rather than Lakland.

Biggest Bang For Your Buck

By GaryDaBassman

from Metairie, LA

See all my reviews

I thought nothing could compare with my '73 Precision. I was wrong. The action on my Lakland is better, and the thinner neck makes it easier to throw in some really fast licks at the top of the neck that were more difficult to play cleanly on the Fender. Sounds great in the studio as well as at a gig. It has a huge spectrum of sounds, and became my favorite bass to play within a few days of purchase. And the absence of a pickguard allows you to better see the beauty of the instrument. My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner.

Review

By JordanRiverBand Bassist

See all my reviews

This bass is astounding for the price! First, let make clear what I mean by "American-Made." All of the parts for this bass (minus electronics on the 44-01 models) are made in the same factory in Chicago that ALL models by Lakland are manufactured. Each body and neck are uniquely paired and labled, then sent overseas to be assembled and finished. All of the finishing standards match those in Chicago. The final product is then shipped back here. So, in essence, this is an American-made instrument. As stated countless time by others, the tonal versatility is unmatched in its price range. I've owned/own many basses from vintage Fenders, Ibanez, Washburn, Samick, Ernie Ball/Musicman, and even Squier, but nothing compares to this! I suggest getting one before the realize what they're basically giving away!

You have a dud

I own the bass and for the last 2 years have had no problem with it. The best recording bass I own. I have Specter, Schecter, Fender, and the Lakeland. Lakeland is #1 for the $.

Best in Class

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This bass is amazing. You can pretty much get any type of tone out of it that you want. I was shopping around for a new bass for 6 or 7 months and I finally settled on this beauty because of it's versatility. It sounds just as good if not better than most of the American made basses I was trying out for twice the price. I still can't believe I was able to get such a high quality instrument for such a reasonable price. I was a little reluctant to try it b/c it is made overseas, but as soon as I did I new it was for me. Before you buy any other bass I highly recommend trying one of these guys out.

Great bass for the money

By danw

from Sonora California

This is a great bass for the price. I've had it for about 8 months now, and can't complain. The tone is amazing, every kind of tone you want or need is there. The neck is thin and very fast and smooth, and it's very light on the shoulder, you can play this one for a long time and not get tired or sore. I like the Bartolini pickups much better than EMG's, they aren't as harsh and are much smoother. The EQ is very versitile. The range of tones available blow the Fenders out of the water. I haven't gigged this one yet, but it seems to be well made and would hold up under pressure. This one's a keeper!

Awesome.

By B.R. Blascoe

from Elgin, IL

Picked up a used model roughly 4 months ago and I love it. The tone is phenomenal, better than every high end fender I tested out over the past year or so. Superb quality at affordable price. I don't even mind that it's active because of how easy it is to insert and remove batteries. What other Bass in this price range is going to have Bartoloni pickups!?!?
