    Lakland Skyline 55-02 Custom Bass Guitar - Ice Blue Metallic with Maple Fingerboard

    Lakland Quality for an Amazing Price!
    Combining premium features and eye-catching looks, the Lakland Skyline 55-02 Custom simply oozes quality. It all starts with an ash body and flat-sawn maple neck. Its electronics are top-shelf all the way, with a versatile pickup configuration and the same preamp as Lakland's higher-priced 44-94 electric bass. The result is the thump, punch, and drive that you'd expect from a boutique instrument. Beyond that, its satin neck feels great, and its deep cutaway provides exceptional access to the entire fingerboard. The Skyline 55-02 Custom delivers classic style, amazing tone, and modern performance.

    Longer scale length for better B-string tone
    Bassists at Sweetwater especially like Lakland 5-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 5-string bass guitars, you know that some of them can sound quite flubby in the lowest registers. With the Skyline 55-02 Custom, your tone will stay tight and pronounced right down to the low B.
    Active pickups and preamp
    No matter what style of music you play, the Lakland pickup system will give you every tone you could want. The Skyline 55-02 Custom sports the same amazing pickups and preamp found on the (much more expensive) 44-94. These active electronics give your instrument serious punch, plus extra expression across the whole fingerboard. A dual-coil humbucking pickup in the bridge gives you fat, aggressive tones, while the J-style single-coil pickup in the neck position offers mellow, warm tones.
    Skyline Series gives you excellent quality at an affordable price
    The Skyline 55-02 Custom gives you amazing quality for a great price. That's because the Skyline 55-02 Custom, like all Skyline Series basses, is made overseas and finished in Lakland's stateside shop. So regardless of where it was originally made, each Skyline 55-02 Custom passes through the hands of Lakland's US luthiers long before it finds its way to you. And when you add to that the fact that your Skyline 55-02 Custom comes equipped with the same pickups and hardware as its US-made cousin, you know you're getting an amazing deal.

    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.

  7. Someone buy this before I convince myself that I need two of them.
    I assure you the action is ridiculously low!

    Plus at 9lbs. and change, this is a unicorn.
