    Hi everyone...looking for some help to answer a simple question...

    I own a 55-01 Lakland Skyline deluxe...it has a pull volume know which kicks in the passive...when the passive is on, the p/u blend knob still works, but the eq knobs don't do anything. Is this normal? They work in active mode.


  2. Yes.

    Its OK, only the blend control works in passive mode

    How does your 55-01 balance? Is it headstock heavy at all?

    I dunno about Steve's, but my 55-01 had excellent balance.

    its very well balanced, probably because the body is a bit of a heavy beast as well! LOL however, best bass I've ever owned...if I buy another, it will be another Lakland for sure
