    Lakland 55-94 Deluxe

    I ordered this instrument (actually serial # 7701) from Sweetwater a few weeks ago. As usual, for Sweetwater, it arrived perfectly packaged and set up. Ian from Sweetwater was awesome, as usual, and has called a couple times since I've had the bass to see how I like it. Go Sweetwater for your first class service!

    As I said, the bass out of the box was set up perfectly. The finish was perfect, and the buckeye burl top is just incredible. I played the bass for a good two hours and it sounded the BEST in my basement studio. The action was low, but not too low, and the sound was incredible. Of course, that was in my studio...then I took the bass to a rehearsal in a friend's 'tuned' studio. I played through a hybrid amp with a 210 and 15...wow!! I played finger style and slapped and everything was perfect about the sound of this bass. It growled, it purred, it cur through the mix and most importantly, it held down the bottom end. The intonation was perfect and the neck was a dream to play...segue into a gig...

    A few days later, I played a Valentine's Day gig in a big hall. I ran the Lakeland through a Mesa Subway D800 with a Mesa Subway 12 and a 15 inch speaker stack. The guys I played with don't run a real big PA, and we had a lot of musical friends out front. Since I wasn't in the PA I turned up a bit. I had nothing but compliments on the way the Lakeland sounded all night. As far as playability, the neck is thin and rippable, and right hand action is awesome. I'm having an affair with this bass...sorry EB, Spector, and Modulus...

    I have to say though, If I was going to go on the road, I would take this bass as a primary, and either the EB or the Modulus as a back up.

    GREAT purchase, and just - wow -!!
