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 J Sonic gives you an absolutely epic range of usable bass sound. That's thanks to its pair of Lakland ChiSonic single-coil pickups. These single-coil bass pickups give the Skyline J Sonic the kind of low-end clarity you'd expect from a classic J Bass, but with added bite and top-end definition. That makes the Skyline J Sonic a great bass for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques.

Ash and maple - an ideal bass tonewood combination

Beneath its pickups, the Lakland Skyline J Sonic bass features the perfect combination of tonewoods, giving you a harmonically rich and hard-hitting sound like no other. Its smoothly contoured ash body makes the Skyline J Sonic 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.

Classic body design

Lakland's Skyline J Sonic has a classic and recognizable body shape, and Sweetwater is sure you'll find it comfortable even over long gigs or sessions. The offset waist design has great balance and feel. The Skyline J Sonic even gives you the same custom-contoured curves and bridge as the original US version.

Lakland Skyline J Sonic 4-string Electric Bass Features:
  • A great-playing electric bass
  • An all-around workhorse bass you can use for any playing technique or musical style
  • Contoured ash body provides a resonant, full-bodied tone
  • Lakland ChiSonic single-coil pickups deliver classic J Bass sound with extra-crisp highs and phenomenal low-end definition

Best J Bass I have played

After a month gigging with a funk band, rock band, and blues group I finally got the J Sonic into the studio. Here is what the producer had to say... "Oddly enough, as an engineer my favorite basses to record are the old music man stingray 4string with the maple fingerboard and that ugly peavey t series bass that nobody would be seen with. This bass sounds as good as either and looks fantastic. Solid fundamental bass notes, no flub, no flab, no p-bass mush, no j-bass honk. No active pickup hiss, no passive pickup noise. Can I have one with a maple fingerboard please?"

perfectly stunning !

This bass is at the top of the line in looks , balance , feel and most importantly, " tone to die for ". If you think of the best sounding passive jazz style bass you have ever played or heard and kick it up a notch or two ,,,,,,,you have this bass . The tone the J Sonic pickups puts out are amazing . I run the bass thru my Fender Rumble 500 and 100 Combo's and a Eden Tour combo and the bass sounds so good you just want to turn it up and never stop playing .......THE TONE IS CRUSHING !!!!!
