I played a Lakland Skyline 44-01 the other day, and now I'm hooked. I'm considering a 55-01, too, but I haven't had a chance to play one. What's the string spacing on their five-strings like, compared to Fender 5's? Also, the store I'll probably buy at doesn't have many in stock, so I'd have to order one. If I did order one or purchase online, are Skylines pretty consistent from bass to bass? Throw in any other comments you have on Skylines, too...the only thing is I'm probably sticking with the 44-01 or the 55-01; I don't know if I want to or can spend several hundred dollars more on the 02 models.
