Lakland Skyline 44-02 Standard 4-string Electric Bass at a Glance:
  • Distinct Lakland body design
  • Active pickups and preamp
  • Lakland: a name serious bass players trust
Distinct Lakland body design

Lakland's Skyline 44-02 Standard 4-string electric bass features a distinct and recognizable body shape. The comfortable offset-waist design has great balance and feel. The Skyline 44-02 Standard 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 Skyline 44-02 Standard 4-string electric 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.
