Skyline 55-01 Standard

Stunning instrument and a great value, fit and finish more in the $2K plus range. Plays like buttah! Neck profile is excellent and well finished. Electronics are superb (love the center detents in the pots) and a super-wide range of tones are just a roll away. Keep and eye on Lakland, they're under-appreciated IMHO. Highly recommended to any skill level bassist. Thanks to my Sales Engineer, Wayne Davis, for getting quality instruments like this in my hands!
