Lakland Bass Guitars

Skyline Series 44-01

Lakland’s Skyline Series delivers versatility with high-end features! The 44-01 utilizes the classic Lakland body shape with a pair of Bartolini MK-1 split-coil soap bar pickups and an MK-1 onboard, 3-band buffered, active preamp. You can dial in an amazing variety of tones, from modern slap to warm fingerstyle, to aggressive picked tones. The 34″ scale neck is fast and smooth and the Lakland 1.6” tapered neck profile makes this an all-around attractive package for any style.

Deluxe Model: The 44-01 Deluxe adds a Spalted Maple veneer natural finish with an Indian Laurel fingerboard.

Skyline Series basses are sold exclusively through our network of local and online distributors.  See our Dealer Page to find your nearest Lakland outlet and a list of online Lakland retailers. Please contact us at sales@lakland.com for assistance outside the USA.
