    Hello,
    I've been gassing for a 5 here lately and I love the P-bass tone. I know the Lakland Skylines have the Bartolini MK1 spit-coil humbuckers. Is this the same magnet structure as a P-bass? If so, can any owners tell me if the neck pup alone w/ the bass in passive mode sounds at all like a P? Thanks.

    Hey,

    I'm also jonezing for a Lakland (I think). Anyway, I can't answer your question. But, I did call Lakland today and spoke with Dan concerning the 55-02. Those guys will answer your questions and they KNOW their product. So give them a call.
