    *** SOLVED*** Yes. Does anyone know if the Bart 5.2A pots will be a direct fit for Lakland 55-02? (Considering the Lakland comes stock with a Bart pre) Particularly utilizing the same knobs that come on the lakeland now. (In other words, I can't tell whether these 5.2A pots require a set screw).

    This Lakland has had a Demeter pre installed and I would like to put it back to orignial. The 5.2A seems to be the closest I could find unless someone can point me something else.

    Many thanks and many blessings!

    I have a Bart 5.2AP in my 55-01 and my tech had to route the hole for the push/pull mid pot just a mm wider for it to fit, Everything else fit perfectly.

    Thank you! That is great to know and prepare for. Appreciate your input!~ Also how do you like the 5.2A? Much different than the stock Lakland / Bart pre in the 55-01?

    Much more musical sounding. I don't like extreme boost or cut in my preamps. I considered the Aguilar but they have way too much bass boost for my taste. I plan to change out the pickups as well.
