A. 5-STRING TUNERS

All Lakland 5s feature Hipshot Ultra-Lite tuners. These tuners have traditional styling in a lightweight design that alleviates headstock diving. The strings are retained with a single-bar retainer.

 

B. 4-STRING TUNERS

All Lakland 4s feature open-back, tapered-shaft Hipshot tuners. The tapered shafts force strings to lie flat against the headstock for improved pressure over the nut. An optional Hipshot Bass Xtender key is also available.

 

C. REINFORCED HEAD

Reinforced head design provides additional strength at necks' weakest point.

 

D. FINGERBOARDS

Lakland manufactures three different fingerboards. Our birdseye maple fingerboards feature ebony face dots, while our rosewood fingerboards feature birdseye maple dots. Our ebony fretless fingerboards are available lined, or unlined.

E. NECK FEATURES

All Lakland necks are manufactured from quarter-sawn maple and feature two graphite reinforcement bars. We have found that these graphite bars help tremendously to minimize dead spots.

F. BOLTS

The neck is securely bolted to the body using a five-bolt configuration that offers the player unrestricted access to the upper register.

 

G. FRETS

The frets are meticulously installed by Lakland luthiers using exacting tolerances that yield superior playability. Each fret end is hand-filed and, when combined with a subtle round-over on the edge of the fingerboard, created the ultimate in comfort.

Large Dunlop dual design strap buttons are compatible with Straplok systems.
