Lakland's Skyline 44-64 GZ PJ electric bass takes a classic body style and to the limits of performance and tone. Equipped with eye-catching Pearl and Abalone fingerboard inlays and a black anodized aluminum pickguard loaded with a Geezer Butler signature EMG split-coil pickup — plus a Geezer Butler Signature EMG J single-coil at the bridge — the Black Sabbath signature pickups deliver the punch and drive that characterize Geezer's aggressive bass tone. If you're looking for the best of style, tone, and performance.
Inspired by the early-1960s incarnation of the world's first electric bass, the Lakland Skyline 44-64 GZ lets you hold down the low end in style. That's largely thanks to EMG's amazing custom-wound rendition of the famous split-coil pickup, co-designed with Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath, which gives your Skyline 44-64 GZ the trademark low-end punch that drives the band and sits perfectly in the mix. Add in the classic growl of an EMG Geezer Butler Signature J single-coil in the bridge position, and you've got a recipe for full-scale bass domination.
The Lakland Skyline 44-64 GZ electric bass gives you amazing quality for a great low price.
