Lakland US Series
44-60 Vintage J Bass

The Lakland 44-60 and 55-60 (Vintage J) bass

Lakland offers a wide range of US series 4 string basses for all playing styles. Lakland's 4-string US series basses are hand build in the USA and are among the most well-built instruments on the market and the Lakland 44-60 (formally the Joe Osbron) is no exception.  Lakland combines vintage 60's playability with leading edge technology with a slim neck, narrow nut, and three in a row controls with modern graphite reinforcement, and enhanced neck joint and passive Lakland pickups to create a killer bass.  This bass gets tremendous reviews. The Guitar World Bass Player magazine said the neck "is the smoothest I've ever laid hands on", Music Biz said "I was in for a real treat" and Bass Player said that after inspection "out test revealed finicky attention to detail"

Please contact us for the best Lakland Bass price possible.  US Series basses are often built to order so there may be a lead time on many basses.
