I have both sitting in my house right now. Both were used. I have less experience with the Warwick, but one of them will need to go. I am having trouble deciding. I'll give the good and bad on each. Warwick: +Growl! +34" scale is easier on the left hand +low B is tight (with the strings came on it teper wounds) +nice feel +great low end +24 ftets (I'll never need that many) +Growl +/-Thinner neck at the nut, but fatter front to back -Less variety Lakland +Great tone in so many flavors +3 band eq. +String through +35" scale and reinforced neck make low B tight +Jazz and Music Man in one +/-Thicker at the nut, but thinner front to back -Less Growl I must say I don't always use the variety in the Lakland. I really like the growl. I have a playing engagement on Sunday. I am going to take both to help decide. There are pluses and minuses on both that I did not list. Both are great basses, but the budget says I need to sell one, or take another job a McDonalds. And BTW I have heard the line choose the one you like best! If I could have both I would!
