Ok, thinking of buying a Lakland 44-02 unplayed. I have never touched a lakland. I hear it is very vesatile, and is a little mellower than a musicman which is a good thing, because I play with acoustic guitarists. Now Seeing as I dont have a lakland to compare it too maybe you guys could help me out. I asked someone this through PM already and got a good response, just looking for more oppinions. How does a Lakland 44-02 compare to a Fender(Geddy, J, P, MIA,MIM). I ask this because I can go play a fender anytime so I can kinda get an idea of the tone if you help me out. as far as.... String Spacing Neck-Finish, width, chunkyness, finish tone... Specific settings on the fenders to get an idea if any? overal feel? or extra comments. Is it kinda like a stingray with the bass boosted and the mids/treb cut? I hear the Laklands have extremely good build quality even though they are made in Korea, true? Thanks Bigtime.
