That Coveted Forward-sounding Bass Tone

The Lakland USA 44-60 Classic 4-string electric bass guitar is primed to inject your playing with that coveted forward-sounding bass tone that's associated with the instrument designs of yesteryear. Although the versatile USA 44-60 sounds great in just about any context, it really shines on musical styles that rely on that classic scooped, growling bass sound. That being said, you can achieve a myriad of tones by blending the volume of both of the USA 44-60's Vintage J pickups. And just wait until you wrap your hand around this bass's ultra-playable quartersawn rock maple neck with graphite reinforcement bars. At Sweetwater, when we want the best of classic tone and style, we reach for a USA 44-60 Classic 4-string electric bass!

Lakland USA 44-60 Classic 4-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Alder and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination
  • Vintage J pickups deliver classic bass tones
  • Lakland: a name serious bass players trust
Alder and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination

Beneath its remarkable duo of Vintage J pickups, the Lakland USA 44-60 Classic 4-string electric bass guitar features the perfect combination of tonewoods, giving you a growling, hard-hitting sound like no other. What's more, its smoothly contoured alder body makes the USA 44-60 Classic one of the most comfortable basses you'll ever pick up, and its quartersawn rock maple neck adds extra punch and sustain to every note you play. The Lakland Dual Access bridge lets you choose whether you want to top load the strings or pass them through the body. No matter how you like your strings strung up, the USA 44-60 Classic has you covered.

Vintage J pickups deliver classic bass tones

The Lakland USA 44-60 Classic 4-string electric bass guitar features a pair of Vintage J pickups, which provide you with a bright and forward-sounding tone, due to the pickups being at different points on the strings' lengths. The bridge pickup kicks out more treble, while the neck pickup gives you a warmer, rounder sound. The real magic; however, lies in the USA 44-60 Classic's dual volume controls, which allow you to blend the volume of both pickups for a massive array of great-sounding bass tones. Cranking both pickups to full volume yields a classic scooped, growling tone that will leave you speechless!
