Check out our zZounds exclusive Lakland factory tour:

The LH3 pickups (wound in the Lakland shop in Chicago) and onboard preamp are the same components you'll find in the legendary USA Series 55-94. (powered by a single 9-volt battery that can be changed by removing a simple snap-on battery cover - no screws to lose!) Internal dip switches let you select the midrange boost/cut frequency.

The neck is the same 35" scale, profile and spec as the USA series 55-94 which has won over legions of professionals because of its great feel, string spacing and most importantly, a B string with tight punchy clarity that lives with the other 4 strings in perfect harmony.

This bass arrived in 2 days only because it was ordered the day before Easter. No damage at all and well packed. I was expecting a gig bag but it did not come with one. Tuned it, made a very small adjustment to the neck and it was perfect! Intonation, string height, neck relief was right on the money but I like the action a bit higher than most musicians. All controls were functional and the hardware is fantastic. This thing sounds so mean and nasty and I haven't even changed anything from center position. The frets are perfect and there is no buzz. The finish is perfect and looks great in the sun. All I need now are strap locks and a case and I will be in business. Thank you zZounds for a perfect transaction!
