Lakeland Korea or indonesia or gibson USA? out of the 2. they didn't make the gibson very long.
I prefer the Lakland basses. Ive really enjoyed the ones Ive owned, even missing some of them today, and never really given the Gibsons Ive sold a second thought honestly. So much depends on your needs as a player, and what you are comfortable expressing yourself with. Different strokes and all
The Lakland by a country mile. The Gibson sounds alright, but that shoe polish over unsanded wood finish is horrible. I will never figure out how Gibson even calls that a finish.
I picked one up and the over-sanded marks stood out and scared it right out of my hands
too bad cos everyone raves about'm despite looks that only a mutha could love
That Gibson looks freakin’ sweet.
Apples and oranges.
a Fender copy fan probably won’t be looking for dual humbuckers.
the non-grain filled mahogany bodies save a lot of expensive paint and polish, I prefer it over a 20mm thick coat of poly.
I haven’t had any Gibson qc problems myself... real, perceived, or otherwise.
I lived in Korea for a number of years and have always been impressed by the quality of most Korean-made instruments (and cars, and electronics). Not quite up to Japanese-made standards, but still quite high in my opinion. I'd go with a Korean made Lakland or PRS any day.
Gibson is capable of making anything from “firewood” to a “masterpiece”. I haven’t encountered anything less than “good” from Lakland.
