Lakland 5514-M-NAT 5-String Bass Guitar
Lakland has always had a distinct and eye-catching approach to the way that they design their bass guitars, and their 55-14 model is no exception to that rule. Beyond just looking cool, the offset waist design is made to give you comfort in addition to great balance and feel. The hybrid mix of alder and maple in this thing offers all you could want in a bass guitar; the former comprises the body, making it harmonically rich and smooth on the hands, while the latter handles the neck for added sustain and grit.
Lakland manufactures all of their electronics in-house, and the resulting sounds make you realize that this is an approach that more bass guitar manufacturers might want to consider trying. You’ll be able to mix and match pickup settings for days thanks to the 3-way bridge pickup coil tap toggle and bass, midrange, and treble knobs. You can also use the panning style pickup control to concoct a blend of your pickup sources, which means the combinations are truly limitless when it comes to crafting a sound to fit the style of music you’re playing.
