Lakland Skyline 44-01 Series 4-string Bass at a Glance:

  • Distinct Lakland body design

  • Active pickups and preamp
  • Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination
Distinct Lakland body design

Lakland's Skyline 44-01 features a distinct and recognizable body shape with a gorgeous ash body. The comfortable, offset waist design has a great balance and feel. The Skyline 44-01 even gives you the same custom-contoured curves, bridge, and pickups as the original U.S. version.

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 44-01 bass sports dual Bartolini MK-1 pickups and a Bartolini preamp. These active electronics give your instrument serious punch, plus extra expression across the whole fingerboard. Split-coil, soap-bar pickups give you everything from fat, aggressive tones to mellow and warm tones.

Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination

Beneath its remarkable duo of Bartolini active pickups, the Lakland Skyline 44-01 bass features the perfect combination of tonewoods, giving you a harmonically rich and hard-hitting sound like no other. What's more, its smoothly contoured ash body makes the Skyline 44-01 one of the most comfortable basses you'll ever pick up, and its solid maple neck adds extra punch and sustain to every note you play.

Lakland Skyline 44-01 Series 4-string Bass Features:

  • An affordable custom bass with active pickups

  • Bartolini pickups and preamp for a wide range of tones
  • Quality tonewoods include ash and maple

Lakeland skyline 44-01

Excellent bass. Easy to play, great tone, great looking!

Destined to be a classic

WOW! I can't believe we got a bass of this quality for this price! These are able to be put side by side with a F precision or a F jazz bass matter of fact with a little tweaking you can pull either sound the best part is it can also produce excellent harmonics and is great for slap but can easily move right back into a walk style the pick ups are outstanding.

Great axe

Better get one of these before Lakland figures out what they have and jack the price up to it's true value. No BS. This is one of , if not the best values out there.The sound,the comfort,the playability are all outstanding. Dead on the money out of the box. I have two of these one natural with maple the other tobacco burst with rosewood. No dead notes. Absolutely amazing instrument.
Music background: 30 years all styles
