44-51/44-51M Basses At A Glance

Bass Frontiers Interview Hutch Hutchinson. Hutch helped us with the neck shape of the 44-51 and to watch for him out with one this summer!

Skyline Series

Our Skyline 44-51 shares the same slab body aesthetics of the US 44-51 and the same Lakland hybrid pickup as the US-made 44-51M. The 44-51 captures the rich and defined power of those early basses that revolutionized the four-string low-end world. The tone and power of a well-preserved vintage instrument with flawless Lakland fretwork and neck refinements make this another of our modern classics.
