Lakland Bass Guitars

Skyline Series 55-01

Versatility with high-end features! The 55-01 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 35″ scale neck is fast and smooth providing the killer B sound Lakland 5’s are famous for.

Deluxe Model – The Deluxe 55-01 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.
