D. Lakin Basses is proud to offer 2 new series to our compliment of bass guitars.

Based on classic designs throughout the Rock N Roll era. 4 models are now available to order.

Working hand in hand with some of my favorite bassists’. We have designed some exciting new models. In some cases, we are working with the bassists family if the player has passed.

We have 8 new models available to order. We offer basses designed by;

Jerry Scheff – a black P bass with a white pickguard, just like the one he used in the last 4 years of playing with Elvis Presley

David Hood – a P bass made from Walnut. This bass is based on his 1961 Fender Jazz Bass that was stolen in 1973 while on tour with Traffic.

Taras Prodaniuk has designed a 70’s J bass body with a ’65 neck with binding and dots and lollipop tuners

Keith Duffy of the Corrs has designed a mid 50’s P Bass with 3 golf foil pickups

Cy Langston – best friend of John Entwistle has helped us with a T-Bird body and a J style neck. This is based on the classic “Fender Bird” that John played in the early 70’s

Duck Dunn – working with Duck’s son Jeff and his wife, June this bass is just like the one Duck used from the mid 70’s till he hooked up with Lakland,
