    CC8A2562-5280-43D5-9A79-07D82A98F152.jpeg Beautiful Lakland Skyline 55-02 that has been my workhorse for the past 7 months. This bass in particular has been a favorite on multiple small recording sessions and, paired with my Polytone 90 W, has some fantastic tones that can be drawn out of it. Bass feels great with lower action, and the ability to customize the tone on this instrument is unmatched with the Quad coil/single coil combo Lakland has become so notorious for. Everything all stock EXCEPT for a new knob where the volume is. This knob has also scratched the finish underneath, much to my own dismay. See last picture, there's a small circle where the veneer has been cut into right underneath the knob if you put the bass into passive mode.

    From the Lakland website:

    Seen on the world’s largest stages, the 55-02 has an active punch that will drive your sound clearly through any mix, with ‘best in class’ tonality for a versatile and refined fit for any playing situation.

    • Features 35″ scale neck for better B string tone and tight, deep bottom
    • Features Lakland hand-wound LH3 pickups and onboard preamp
    • Available in Deluxe and Custom models
    The LH3 pickups (wound in our shop in Chicago) and onboard preamp are the same components you’ll find in our legendary USA Series 55-94. (powered by a single 9-volt battery that can be changed by removing a simple snap-on battery cover – no screws to lose!) Internal dip switches let you select the midrange boost/cut frequency.

    The neck is the same 35” scale, profile and spec as our USA series 55-94 which has won over legions of professionals because of its great feel, string spacing and most importantly, a B string with tight punchy clarity that lives with the other 4 strings in perfect harmony.

    Yep, shipping with hardcase included. It's not a nice hardcase, but it will protect the instrument for its trip.
