Simply stated, we believe these are the finest electric basses money can buy. And, as the name suggests, the USA Series is built right here in our Chicago workshop.

Lead-time for a custom build is currently 90-120 days.

USA Series 55-94

The USA Series 55-94 is Lakland’s original five-string design, featuring our own LH3 quad-coil soap bar pickup in the bridge position and a dual-coil J-style pickup at the neck. The bridge pickup is equipped with a 3 way coil select switch so you can hear all four coils, the neck side coils isolated, or the bridge side coils isolated – a setup that is great for maximum versatility and customizable tones. This incredibly versatile pickup array is matched with our LH3 preamp featuring 3 bands of boost cut EQ, a blend control to mix the 2 pickups, internal midrange frequency select, internal gain trim, and pull passive master volume.

  • Available with Swamp Ash or Alder body wood
  • Optional Quilted Maple or Flame Maple figured top over Swamp Ash body
  • Available Mother-Of-Pearl, Abalone, or Ebony block inlays

The 55-94 is available with either white or black neck binding, and matching headstock color on most finishes. The fretless version of the 55-94 is available with a lined or unlined Ebony fingerboard.

All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.
