At a Glance:
- Distinct Lakland body design
- Active pickups and preamp
- Ash and maple – an ideal bass tonewood combination
Lakland’s 44-02 Deluxe Skyline features a distinct and recognizable body shape with a gorgeous quilt maple top. The comfortable offset-waist design has great balance and feel. The 44-02 Deluxe Skyline even gives you the same custom-contoured curves, bridge, and pickups as the original US version.
No matter what style of music you play, the Lakland pickup system will give you every tone you could want. The 44-02 Deluxe Skyline bass sports the same amazing pickups and preamp found on the (much more expensive) 44-94. These active electronics give your instrument serious punch, plus extra expression across the whole fingerboard. A dual-coil humbucking pickup at the bridge gives you fat, aggressive tones, while the J-style single-coil in the middle position offers mellow, warm tones.
Beneath its remarkable duo of active pickups, the Lakland 44-02 Deluxe Skyline bass features the perfect combination of tonewoods, giving you a harmonically rich and hard-hitting sound like no other. What’s more, its smoothly contoured ash body makes the 44-02 Deluxe Skyline one of the most comfortable basses you’ll ever pick up, and its solid maple neck adds extra punch and sustain to every note you play.
