Lakland Skyline 55-01 5 String Bass Gloss Black, Maple Fingerboard.

The Lakland Skyline series comes equipped with dual Bartolini MK-1 split-coil soap bars and are paired with the MK-1 preamp. The 55-01 has that deep Lakland cutaway on the high register side of the neck that allows easy access to ALL 22 frets up the neck for throwing licks on top of your grooves.

Lakland is known for their 35-inch scale narrow necks that make for smooth feel and great balance. With all of the great added features like Hipshot ultralite tuners and a Lakland Dual Access through body bridge, the 55-01 resonates like high end basses should. That is why the low tones on Skyline 5 String basses boom with piano-like clarity! Stop in and try one today.
