Lakland Bass Guitars

Skyline Series J-Sonic 4

A merger of sorts. We crossed the body style and accurate vintage neck shape of the 44-60 with our own hand-built Chi-Sonic single coil pickups, which feature a fundamentally different pickup design than the vintage spec single coils. The tone is big, with clear and bright upper midrange, making this a super punchy and articulate bass.

  • Big, clear tone with a bright upper midrange
  • Features Lakland’s hand built Chi-Sonic pickups
  • Available Hipshot Bass Xtender (D-Tuner)

The J-Sonic 4 has been described by recording engineers as having a tone that already sounds “well produced,” right out of the amp. The chrome narrow shell pickups have a very unique and look and sound.

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.
