    Anyone with experience with both of these beauties?

    I currently own Jazzman and I´m considering if should get Lakland 55-02 for different sound or even to replace the Jazzman. So, how do these two compare sound-vice, differences in playability etc.?

    Thank you!

    I had a 55-02 and loved it. Never really cared for Warwick. Maybe a Corvette freless.

    Well OK... ...but could you tell me why you never really cared for Warwick and why you loved the 55-02 you had?

    If I´ve understood correctly 55-02´s sound is a bit more mellow than Warwicks? More towards Jazz perhaps? What about playabilty, necks thickness and action?

    warwickissa kielet lähempänä toisiaan, Laklandissa 19mm tallan päällä. Laklandissa ohuempi, mutta leveämpi kaula, ja pienemmät nauhat. Soundissa aika iso ero Bartolineilla, mut jos vaihtaa Duncanit, ni ero kaventuu huomattavasti. Kielet saa halutessaan TODELLA matalalle molemmissa.
