I just bought another Lakland 55-63, and it's got a strange feature I've not seen on another instrument: It's got the standard Bartolini preamp with Basslines J's, but it's also got a passive tone pot before the preamp. You can roll off highs without messing with active settings. It sounds redundant, but it actually gives you some interesting tonal variation that either passive or active alone won't. Take a look: Anybody ever seen anything like that before? Supposedly, it's a one-off experiment from Lakland. Wierd idea, huh? The thing sounds fabulous!
