    Hey everybody, i'm looking for lakland owners out there and just wondering how they work for slapping, looking at a few diagrams and i see that there isn't a ton of room between the neck and pickups so i was just wondering what people have noticed (note i'm mostly looking at the 4 string skyline or the other non-signature 4 string)

    Looks like about the same amount of space as a Jazz to me, or maybe just a touch less. The only models that don't have much space are the Hollowbody and the Scheff sig.

    FWIW, I never had any problems slapping on a 55-01 or JO5.

    I have a 55-94 and have no problems with slapping - it feels like it has as much room as my MTD 535 or Ken Lawrence Brase 5. It slaps GOOD!

    I have a 55-01 and it is a slap machine.

    I have slapped on many a 55-02 and 55-94, and they have plenty of room too.

    The way that they're set up, to me, they're some of the best basses to slap on.
