Lakland Skyline 55-02 Deluxe Amber Quilt/Maple Fingerboard 5-String Bass Excerpt: When Lakland first introduced the 55-94 bass, it seriously raised the bar in the world of high-end 5-strings.

SKYLINE 55-02

The 55-02 is equipped with our familiar MM/J pickup configuration and custom 3-band preamp used in the US-made 55-94. The controls on the 55-02 are the same as on the 55-01 and the master volume pot can be pulled to bypass the active preamp. The 55-02 has a 3-way toggle for coil splitting. Hear it!>
