    I have been reading a lot of good info about the Skyline 55-01 but how is the Skyline 44-01? How do they compare to the Tribute L-2000.

    Anyone ever played a 44-01?

    Hey,

    Wouldn't mind hearing about anyone's experiences with these, and/or how the 44-01's compare to G&L Tribute 2000's.

    Thanks!

    I recently purchased a new Skyline 44-01 fretless. The quality is excellent, the neck feels great, and the Bartolini MK-1 pups and pre provide plenty of usable tones. I decided on the 44-01 because this is my first fretless. I can't comment on the Tribute though-I've never played one.

    I wound up getting a Skyline 55-02. This bass is put together very well. I bought it used and it is in great shape. I like the feel of the neck, it’s profile is (for a better lack of words) thin(er) than some basses I have tried. The neck does get wide at the body so I have to get used to it when playing on the high part of the neck. Still interested in getting a 4, next time.
     
  6. I believe that you were better off getting the 02. I've played 44-02's and 44-01's, and the 02's sounded better.
