I have had my 55-64 about six weeks now, and I think I am over the new bass high. First, compared to my other basses, the 55-64 is really big. The body is full sized, it has a 35" scale, and at 10 lbs. 4 oz., it is almost two pounds more than my Millennium. The fit and finish is excellent. My only issue was the sharp fret ends. I also think that Lakland should ship Skylines in gigbags or hardcases instead of just a shipping box. The bass plays really well. The neck has a very flat profile that is super comfortable in combination with the 19mm string spacing. The bass is large and is not light at all, but my large Levy's strap supports me well. My bass is equipped with a Lakland Vintage pickup. It has extremely powerful output, and caused the amp at my church is clip. I do love the tone of this bass. It works well with everything, that said, I think I will have a Norstrand Big Split installed at the bridge so I can get a more modern slap tone.
