    Comments about Lakland Skyline 55-01 5-String Bass Guitar:

    I'm an novice bassist when it comes to public performances but have been playing for a while now. This bass is VERY versatile with a huge range of sounds that is conducive to many different playing styles. That makes it perfect for me as I'm still at a stage where I'm experimenting and really love a wide variety of styles. Since I can't settle on my "sound" yet the versatility and quality sound in many different styles that this bass gives is perfect. Once I settle on my favorite style I'll invest big money in the right bass. And after the experience of buying from Guitar Center I'll make that purchase here for sure!

    Amazing bass

    Comments about Lakland Skyline 55-01 5-String Bass Guitar:

    This bass is great it has a great slim confortable neck that lets you play with ease, and with bartolini electronics and pups you can dial in any tone you like. Its got a killer slap tone and it sounds just as great with the eq setup flat or with mid treble or bass boosts. B- string is one of the best in the market for the price it sounds just as the lakland guys says it soudns like with piano like clarity. I would buy this bass over and over again. Buy it you wont regret it.

    Unbeatable

    By STEVE SMITH

    Comments about Lakland Skyline 55-01 5-String Bass Guitar:

    This bass exceeded every expectation I had. At this price point there is nothing that comes close to for quality. It easily rivals the Fender American series 5 string and has a MUCH better B tone. Its the best Low B tone I've heard hands down. I run my SVT with all the tone knobs at 12 O'clock and use the onboard EQ to dial in tones. The EQ is very flexible, all knobs at detent positions and you have a nice deep modern voiced bass, work the EQ a little, you can get the J and P bass tones. The Bartolinis and pre-amp sound great, I get great sound w/minimal fuss which is important for me on stage, 1 less thing to worry about. In the studio I run this straight in to my LA610, add a little compression and Ta Da!!! Sits perfect in the mix. Bottom line I've been a J bass guy for a long time and tried this because I wanted a more modern sound for live playing, but didn't want to spend a fortune on something people that spill drinks on. What I got was an all around workhorse. Anyone wanna buy an Fender American Jazz/

    Outstanding Value

    By Kenneth Asbell

    from Dayton, OH

    Comments about Lakland Skyline 55-01 5-String Bass Guitar:

    I purchased this instrument from Guitar Center and had it shipped to a local store nearby (December 2012). Upon receipt, I was pleasantly surprised at the level of quality at this price point. Visual appeal is superb. Action was spot-on for someone who favors fairly low action and intonation was perfect. The most pleasing attribute I discovered about this bass is that the typical fretboard "dead spots," found on almost every bass I've ever played and/or owned (many), were nearly non-existent. This allows for unlimited flexibility, since I can to count on sustain from pretty much any fretboard position. I did perceived a slight neck issue with the instrument when I got it home, so I called Lakland customer service. The representative was quick to offer to take care of the issue and the company covered shipping to and fro. Turn-around was super-fast and the adjustment exceeded my expectations. In fact, the instrument came back to me PERFECTLY in tune. In summary, the Lakland 55-01 is an uncommonly high-quality, entry level product offered by a relatively high-end bass guitar company that has earned my future business--buy!
