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.

The affordable Lakland 55-02 Deluxe bass gives you the look, the sound, and the feel you demand!
