    If you had to choose between a Lakland 55-01 with the upgraded Bartolini NTMB preamp or a Fender American deluxe V precision Bass. Which one would you choose and why??

    It'd be a tough call, but Lakland.

    Wow, those are beautiful Basses. The one I am looking at is just a plain standard cherry sunburst. I would love to be able to get one like those though!! :crying:

    GO with the Lakland. I heard so many times here that Fender didn't do so well on their 5 strings. I just picked up a 55-02...It's pretty sweet

    I would vote for the Lakland in GENERAL because generally speaking they have more consistency in their product lines...
