Lakland Skyline DJ-4 4-string Solidbody Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:

  • Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination
Based on Darryl Jones's original custom bass

When Darryl Jones commissioned fellow bass legend Albey Balgochian to create his first custom bass back in 1985, the two began a friendship that gave birth to the original Darryl Jones Signature Model Lakland Bass. Decades later, Lakland is proud to offer the Skyline DJ-4, an affordable bass guitar modeled after Darryl's original bass. The Skyline DJ-4 even gives you the same custom-contoured curves and special Vintage Wound pickups as the original US version, plus extra touches such as the bound fingerboard and elegant block inlays.

Lakland Vintage Wound single-coil pickups deliver clear tone with tons of definition

From tubby neck tones that are perfect for R&B to sizzling, aggressive, rock-style attack back at the bridge, the Lakland Skyline DJ-4 gives you an absolutely epic range of usable bass sound. That's thanks to its pair of Lakland Vintage Wound single-coil pickups. These extraordinary single-coil bass pickups give the Skyline DJ-4 the kind of low-end clarity you'd expect from a classic P Bass, but with added bite and top-end definition. That makes the Skyline DJ-4 a great bass for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques.

Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination

Beneath its remarkable duo of classic single-coil pickups, the Lakland Skyline DJ-4 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 swamp ash body makes the Skyline DJ-4 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 DJ-4 4-string Solidbody Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • An amazing electric bass designed based on Darryl Jones's (Miles Davis, Sting, Madonna, The Rolling Stones) original custom Lakland model
  • An all-around workhorse bass you can use for any playing technique or musical style

Walked into my local music store, saw this...had only been there two days...told them to hold it...went home, grabbed my other Lakland, traded in my light blue DJ4 for this one. Bass of my dreams. Plays and sounds great.If you can get one....do it.
