Lakland USA 44-64 PJ with 1.5” nut - *SOLD*
£2250
Sheffield


Recommended Posts

I’m finding that I want to play Ps with heavy flatwounds. These sound great but end up being too heavy to play at the bridge pickup so kind of negate having a PJ for me. I think I’d be better off with a separate P and J, hence this beauty is up for sale.

 

I ordered this new directly from Lakland and got it in summer 2020 (but still haven’t got around to taking the film off the pickguard).

 

Anyone who’s tried these will know that Lakland make some of the nicest necks out there and this is no exception. Beautiful and a doddle to get around on due to the slim nut and satin finish. This has the full size Hipshot tuners on (standard wind) rather than the Ultralites.

 

Nice and beefy P bass pickup (one of their own design) and a burpy J bridge pickup.

 

Alder body in Olympic White. Rosewood fretboard with bird's eye maple dots. Quartersawn maple neck. The J pickup is painted in the same finish as the body.

 

37.5mm at nut, 22mm at 1st fret, 24.25mm at 12th fret. 10” radius. 

 

@dub_junkie can probably attest to how nice this is as I let him have a play on it when he bought a bass off me a few months back. 

 

Strung with Labella 760FL flats (which seem to offer the best compromise for playing over either pickup) and recently set up by Jon Shuker.

 

I’ve noticed a small lacquer crack around one of the neck heel screw rings. See picture. 

 

Weight is 4.3kg. 

 

Collection from Sheffield preferred. Possible delivery/meet-up around Yorkshire, on the route between Sheffield and the North-East or on the route from Sheffield to Bath. Please ask and I’ll see what’s feasible. I'm not going to post this.

 

Drop me a line if you have any questions.

 

Here’s a taste of what it sounds like as a P (direct into a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4):

That is a cracker. Can't believe you're telling it. GLWTS.

I think I might be mentally unwell again.

 

As I mentioned, the PJ thing isn’t maybe the best setup for me. I’m finalising my Shuker build which will be a straight P with likely a 38.5mm nut. I have a PJ MIDIBass on order, again with a 38mm nut (though not even sure that’ll ever get built as it’s been over two years since I put a deposit down on it). I also have a straight P (but with a 41mm nut) to tide me over.

I haven't received my Shuker yet as you know, but I imagine the feel will be similar to my 44-64 PJ.

I think it would be quite cool to have both in the armoury, but if you're not going to play it, there's no point in holding on to it I guess.

Trying to declutter my brain a bit really and free up some money for other stuff (itching to order a new Rhodes as it’s something I know I’ll cherish but they’re not cheap).

 

Looking forward to seeing what Jon’s created for you.

Damn… the email from the lottery this morning had me thinking this could be my first purchase with my winnings, even before the Aston Martin and RS6, alas I’m £2245 short still. 🤦🏻‍♂️😡

 

I love this! 😍

@thebrig guessing this doesn't fit your needs, despite the camouflaged J pickup.

I'm afraid not, I had a USA Bob Glaub not so long ago, and whilst it was absolutely fantastic to play, I really wanted a straight P bass with no J pickup.

 

Yours looks like a lovely bass, and there's no doubt that Lakland basses are right up there with the best.

I easy played this as long as the Skyline Jazz I went to buy!

 

At the time I was one of the unwashed when it came to Lakland, having never really played them before. So to play the skyline which was a great bass in its own right and then to have Peter tell me I could have a try of his USA Lakland P/J, well I was blown away by how good this bass felt, played and sounded.

 

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the skyline I bought that day but I still remember just how lush this bass was. 


GLWTS!

Sounded great in your hands too. I love hearing how different the same instrument can sound when played by different people.

I’ll likely be going to BD with it if it doesn't sell here, if I can manage it; it’ll cost more to buy it from there than it will directly from me. Seriously peeps, if you’re interested in this, now is the time to get in touch!
