Lakland Quality for an Amazing Price

Whether you're playing the local bar scene Friday nights, carrying the rhythm Sunday mornings, or blazing the tour circuit seven days a week, the Lakland Skyline 55-02 Deluxe bass has the sonic flexibility and precise feel you need. You'll have exceptional access to the entire fretboard thanks to the deep cutaway. And with Bartolini pickups and a 3-band EQ, you'll be able to hit your bass amplifier or direct box with your tone already dialed in. So, if you want more from your bass without spending more for your bass, then the 55-02 Deluxe by Lakland is perfect for you!

Lakland 55-02 Deluxe Skyline Series 5-string Bass at a Glance:
  • Longer scale length for better B-string tone
  • Active pickups and preamp
  • Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination
Longer scale length for better B-string tone

Bassists at Sweetwater especially like Lakland five-string basses because their longer 35" scale length holds the low B string at a higher tension. This means that your lowest notes will have more punch and impact, with more note definition too. If you've played a few five-string bass guitars you know that some of them can sound quite flubby in the lowest registers - with the Lakland Skyline 55-02 Deluxe your tone will stay tight and pronounced right down to the low B.

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 55-02 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 in the bridge gives you fat, aggressive tones, while the J-style single-coil pickup in the neck position offers mellow, warm tones.

Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination

Beneath its remarkable duo of Bartolini active pickups, the Lakland 55-02 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 55-02 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 55-02 Deluxe Skyline Series 5-string Bass Features:
  • An affordable custom bass with active pickups
  • Same hardware and electronics as the USA-made Lakland bass
  • Quality tonewoods include ash, spalted maple, maple, and rosewood
  • Comfortable for long gigs
  • Perfect for any style of music
The affordable Lakland 55-02 Deluxe bass gives you the look, the sound, and the feel you demand!
