Whether you’re playing the local bar scene Friday nights, carrying the rhythm Sunday mornings, or blazing the tour circuit seven days a week, the Lakland Skyline 55-01 Standard bass has the sonic flexibility and precise feel you need. You’ll have exceptional access to the entire fretboard thanks to the deep cutaway. And with Bartolini pickups and a 3-band EQ, you’ll be able to hit your bass amplifier or direct box with your tone dialed in. So, if you want more from your bass without spending more for your bass, then the 55-01 Standard by Lakland is perfect for you!
Lakland’s Skyline 55-01 Standard features a distinct and recognizable body shape. The comfortable, offset waist design has a great balance and feel. The Skyline 55-01 Standard even gives you the same custom-contoured curves, bridge, and pickups as Lakland’s high-end version.
No matter what style of music you play, we are confident the Lakland pickup system will give you every tone you could want. The Skyline 55-01 Standard 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. Split-coil, soap-bar pickups give you everything from fat, aggressive tones to mellow and warm tones.
Bassists especially like Lakland five-string basses because their longer 35″ scale length holds the low B string at a higher tension. This means that your lowest notes will have more punch and impact, with more note definition too. If you’ve played a few five-string bass guitars you know that some of them can sound quite flubby in the lowest registers – with the Lakland Skyline 55-01 Standard your tone will stay tight and pronounced right down to the low B.
