A new, affordable Lakland model!
The Skyline 55-01 Electric Bass Guitar retains all the key features that have made Lakland the choice of professionals: ash body, flat-sawn maple neck, a choice of fretboard woods, Bartolini MK1 split-coil soapbar pickups, and 3-band buffered active preamp. Controls include cut/boost bass, mid, and treble; a panning-style pickup blend; and master volume (with pull-out switching to bypass EQ). 35" scale.
Lakland luthiers now do their fret work using Plek technology to assure optimum playability. Plek is a CAD/CAM machine with scanning capability. It was developed to perform high-speed, highly accurate fret dressing, nut and bridge slotting and shaping, and engraving work. When used by an experienced luthier, the Plek machine produces necks with fretwork and action that equal the very best handwork and does it consistently.
