A real workhorse bass, Lakland’s Darryl Jones Signature Skyline DJ-4 solidbody electric bass guitar gives delivers impressive playability and an extremely wide tonal range. Whether you’re aiming for smooth low-end thump in an R&B band or an aggressive bassist creating fast-moving metal bass lines, you’ll find the tone you need in your Lakland Skyline DJ-4. That’s because the Skyline DJ-4 combines the harmonically rich sound of swamp ash and maple with the wide tonal range of Lakland’s Vintage Wound single-coil pickups. Based on a custom bass designed for Darryl Jones, the Lakland Skyline DJ-4 bass is a versatile instrument that bassists of all styles should check out.

Based on Darryl Jones’s original custom bass
Lakland Vintage Wound single-coil pickups deliver clear tone with tons of definition
Ash and maple – an ideal bass tonewood combination

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 elegant block inlays.

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 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.

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.
