I just read this about a Lakland 44-02 that's for sale. One of the reasons I have not gone after a 44-02, is that I have read it does not cut through well in a live setting. I play rock (classic to modern) and have always liked the way these basses looked and played. But, I have never played one of these live. Perhaps those who have commented on the bass not cutting through, did not use the adjustable mids as mentioned above? Any thoughts?
