Lakland Bass Guitars

Skyline Series Darryl Jones DJ-4

This is the fix for your tone jones. If you know Darryl’s discography, then you know he plays with the heavyweights; Miles Davis, Sting, Madonna, and, oh yeah… The Rolling Stones. The man plays a lot of bass – and needs a lot of bass to play.

  • Powerful and passive single-coil pickups specially designed by Lakland
  • Pearl block inlays in an Indian Laurel fingerboard
  • Hipshot Bass Xtender (D-Tuner) tuners available

The Skyline Series Darryl Jones Signature bass looks similar to our 44-60 model, but has more curvaceous contours and dramatic cutaways that adds to its vintage styling. Darryl’s bass is fitted with a pair of passive single coil pickups specially designed by Lakland. Three knobs control the tone: Bridge Volume, Neck Volume and Tone. Pearl block inlays and white binding are standard on Indian Laurel fingerboard models, Matching headstock color is standard. Hipshot bass Xtender tuners available.

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.

January - 2012

“While… similar to the company’s Vintage J 44-60 and 55-60 models, the new Signature models offer more curve to their contouring and cutaways that Lakland says adds vintage styling.”
