Just desire an opinion of most concerning which would be most often picked. Money is probably not the biggest issue. Best tone, feel, durability is. I like the neck on the Geddy, and would replace the pickups with Fender noiseless, or DiMarzio Ultra jazz. Eventually a j-retro. I do not know what I would do on the Lakland. I have not had the chance to play one. And for the cost may not have the money to upgrade rightaway.
