Lakland 55-94 Deluxe - SOLD
£2200
Woking

Recommended Posts

NOW SOLD

For sale is my Lakland 55-94 Deluxe, trans amber with a beautiful flame maple top, and a maple neck with a stunning birdseye maple fingerboard. It's an early one, the serial number (55xx) dating it to 1998. I bought it from its previous owner in the States a number of years ago, and it came with Aguilar pickups and a Mike Pope preamp already installed. I also have the original Bartolini pickups and NTMB-L preamp and pots, which are included in the sale. The bass comes complete with a G&G lined hardcase.

For a 22-year old bass, it's in great condition, but in the interests of full disclosure there are a few small dings here and there which I've tried to show in the photographs. It's been well looked after, so it's in very good order for its age. At only 3.9kg, it's light for a five string, and balances on a strap beautifully. It's 35" scale, with 19mm spacing at the bridge, and through body or bridge stringing. The see-thru scratchplate is removable.

Oh man dont do it... These early 5594,s are so special. I have 1999 5594 Deluxe....The golden era of Lakland without a doubt.  They dont offer 5594,s with the birdseye fret boards any more without a huge £ charge. That quilted maple is pretty insane also.. one of a kind proper Lakland 5594 you have there.

Wow, man, you are massively tempting me with your Laklands, really love the blue one also, but I prefer a maple fretboarded, and couldn't afford to collect more than needed...  and here it is,  my wish is fulfilled.. :DDD 

 love the sound but I had some 35" basses recently, and can't decide it  would be comfortable...

      For Sale or trade my US Lakland Classic 44-64 with Geezer EMG Pups.
      I purchased this second hand from guitar guitar, it's in very good condition. The Lakland US necks really do feel as good as people say, this one is 43.60mm at the nut and has an alder body with maple board. 
      EMG's GZR's certainly seem an upgrade to me for power and clarity but also included are the original Lakland pups and loom. Comes with mint, perloid & black scratch plates, the bevel on the mint is less than perfect (didn't know my OCD was this bad) so I had a black one made by Sims guitars who did a great job. Now they have a CAD file for the guard you can get a discount should you wish to have a further guards made up (Tort??).
      Weight on kitchen scales is 3897g and I was quoted 3.8KG by the shop so pretty sure that's the ballpark.
      The overall condition is very good, going over it with a fine toothed comb I have spotted a couple of tiny sub 1mm blemishes on the body but only visible at 'that' one angle and can't really get a pic of them, attempt with finger below. The neck looks and feels flawless. I will try and get some better over all pics but just getting reflections at the moment.
      Original Lakland hard case included so shipping is possible if fully insured. Meet or collection following appropriate guidelines preferred though.
      Trades wise, for a keeper it is likely to be: 4 string, under 4Kg weight, sub 42mm at the nut and back of the neck would be blemish free to the touch. Happy to listen to alternative trade offers and could add cash for the right instrument.

      OmniCabSim Deluxe: £160
      Tweakable cabinet simulator and DI (with aux in, headphone out with separate volume control, balanced XLR, ground lift, and 1/4 'through' and 'output'). Perfect working order, very good condition, boxed. RRP £259, and being from Chile with only one UK distributor that is out of stock these aren't the easiest things to get hold of. Postage via special delivery £7, or collection from Twickenham. My seller feedback is here: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/446834-feedback-for-sumone/ Will consider a trade/part exchange for an amp head,  ideally >300w with FX loop, aux in, headphone out, XLR out. Something like the Ashdown RM 300 or 500.

      Info from: https://www.dsmnoisemaker.com/omnicabsim-deluxe/yh0m9
      A cabinet simulator is a device designed to emulate the frequency response of a speaker system. Guitar and bass speaker systems have a very pronounced filtering effect, rolling off the low and high frequencies very sharply due to their physical and electrical properties. Things like cone size, material, impedance, enclosure size and type, even distance from a wall, affect these filters very noticeably.
      Features:
      The Philosophy behind the design is to allow the user to CREATE their own cabinet response settings, moving away from the typical preset cabinet simulators in the market. This approach let the musician to define his own sound and getting an accurate reproduction of it when recording and playing live gigs, without depending on mic placement, amplifier or cabinet availability..Just dial in your favorite tone, tune your cabinet response and go straight to the PA or recording gear!!
      Mic and Line output. Compensate levels with the gain control. Tunable high frequency response emulates the steep low pass filter that different speakers produce. Tunable Low frequency response that controls the low end roll off typical of speaker of various sizes. Tunable low frequency resonance lets you dial the resonance of the low end roll off point, reproducing the effect of closed or open back cabinets, and anything in between. Mid control lets you dial “modern” or “vintage” responses. Punch control boosts the 800 Hz band, that lets you cut through the mix with warmth.
