    I currently own a Fender P bass and I'm looking at the next bass I want to get. The Lakland 55-02 caught my attention. I figured it seemed great for other genres I've been exploring that the Fender just won't work for. My only problem is cash (it costs around $1500) and I'll have to save up for a bit. Is it worth it? Or are there more economically friendly ways I can spend my money?

    Get a used one! Plenty in the classifieds, usually for 900-1000 dollars. I've got the 4-string version, picked it up for $850. Well worth it IMO!

    I picked one up here (Bob Glaub) in TB classifieds - the necks are amazing! Neopunch pup takes a little getting used to, but overall a very solid bass. My other P is a 57 Fender reissue, and the Lakland has been seeing the gig time recently.

    Yes, plenty of used ones available, but I'm wondering what that P bass can't do. I have a Lakland 55-60 (five string), an MIA Fender Jazz and P, and I play in three quite different genres - I've used the P in every one of them, as well as the other two basses!
