Necks similar to Lakland

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Dave, Dec 6, 2005.

  1. Been checking out lots of different music stores, thinking about picking up another bass. The only problem is, if the neck isnt similar (fairly wide and flat) to my 55-02, then I dont feel comfortable on it. Is there anything else out there that has a neck somewhat similar to a Lakland 5er?

    Im thinking a $2000 cap, new or used.

    Thank you very much kind sirs and madams,

    Get lucky on a used 55-94?

    I've got a 55-01 (I think the neck is very similar if not the same as the 02), and a Skyline JO5. The necks are totally different. The JO definately has more meat to it. But both to me are very fast.
  3. Thats what I was thinking, but Im thinking I may want something a hair more aggressive.

    And I just had a revelation; about how much would it run to have the Seymour Duncan pre and pickups installed? I hear that will give you a bit more aggression.

    Note: I know an SR5 would do the aggressive thing well, but I dont need quite that much aggressiveness, and Im also not fond of their necks, which is very important when it comes to me deciding on a bass.

    The neck on my Benavente '51 PJ5 is real close to my Laklands, except of course it is 34" scale. It is a little slimmer front to back though, and a real joy to play.
