Lakland 44-02 Deluxe Skyline 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 44-02 Deluxe Skyline features a distinct and recognizable body shape with a gorgeous quilt maple top. The comfortable offset-waist design has great balance and feel. The 44-02 Deluxe Skyline even gives you the same custom-contoured curves, bridge, and pickups as the original US 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 44-02 Deluxe Skyline bass 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 at the bridge gives you fat, aggressive tones, while the J-style single-coil in the middle position offers mellow, warm tones.

Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination

Beneath its remarkable duo of active pickups, the Lakland 44-02 Deluxe Skyline 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 44-02 Deluxe Skyline 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 44-02 Deluxe Skyline Series 4-string Bass Features:
  • An affordable custom bass with active pickups and a beautiful quilt maple top
  • Same hardware and electronics as the USA-made Lakland bass
  • Solid feel with active-pickup punch
  • Same high-end preamp and electronics featured on the 44-94
  • 9V-powered pre with snap-on cover - no screws!
  • Comfortable for long gigs
  • Perfect for any style of music
The Lakland 44-02 Deluxe: the look, sound, and feel you demand!

Sweeet bass!

I purchased a cherry sunburst maple 44-02 and James Shilliday was the sales rep I had worked with. James made everything a breeze from start to finish! Great tone variety, easy to play, and the beauty of the finish and color was far better in person, rather than viewing an online picture. Although my 'go to' bass was a Fender Jazz Deluxe since 2001, the 44-02 is now the 'go to' bass and the jazz deluxe, among others, will be second in line. Sweetwater rocks!
Music background: Since 1968, I have played rock, blues, punk, New Wave, bluegrass, back to rock and now stuck on rockin' blues. Played small to huge venues, local to regional. A beginner to semi-pro. Stage and studio, vocalist and bassist.

Sweetwater Advice

Evan Neiman

Whether I’m recording in the studio or playing a gig, the 44-02 is my go-to bass. It delivers more tone options than I could ever need. Plus, When I play a live show and the battery dies, I just tap the volume knob and immediately switch the bass into passive mode. This bass is a lifesaver and will never leave my collection.
