Is this a Lakland 55-01 or a 55-02? (sound clip)

    Hmmm.....gonna go out on a limb here and say it's a 55-01. I used to own one. I'm willing to bet the 55-02 isn't quite as modern sounding with the jazz/mm p/u config.

    I have never played a Lakland so I wasn't sure, but I did suspect it was the 55-01 because it has a similar sound to the Warwick Streamer Stage I, that I owned. (2 x soapbar Barts)

    Thanks!

    That doesn't sound anything like my 55-94 deluxe sounded, so I'd guess this is a 55-01. I actually kind of like the sound.

    Sounds like my 55-01.
     
  6. Yeah, I believe that is a 55-01. Doesnt really sound like my 55-02. Nice sounding though.
