Way off the deep end! Just like the 44-01, dual Bartolini MK-1 split-coil soapbars are coupled with the MK-1 preamp. The 44's and 55's have 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.

And we have said it before: 35-inch scale necks make for killer low B's! That is why the low tones on Skyline 5-string basses boom with piano-like clarity!

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 55-01 Standard 5-string electric bass guitar is the kind of instrument you want to have.
