Lakland’s Skyline 44-01 features a distinct and recognizable body shape with a gorgeous ash body. The comfortable, offset waist design has a great balance and feel. The Skyline 44-01 even gives you the same custom-contoured curves, bridge, and pickups as the original U.S. version.
No matter what style of music you play, the Lakland pickup system will give you every tone you could want. The Skyline 44-01 bass sports dual Bartolini MK-1 pickups and a Bartolini preamp. These active electronics give your instrument serious punch, plus extra expression across the whole fingerboard.
