Lakland Skyline 44-64 Custom Bass

Lakland Logo

Lakland Skyline 44-64 Custom

The 44-64 is modeled after the venerable workhorse '64 P bass. One custom-wound Lakland pickup provides a bruising punch and drive that nails the vintage split humbucker tone, sending it through the roof with full voicing and modern energy. The body and 34" scale maple neck have an excellent balance.

Our Skyline 44-64 shares the same aesthetics and Lakland hybrid pickup as the US-made version. The 44-64 captures the rich and defined power of those early basses that revolutionized the four-string low-end world. The tone and power of a well-preserved vintage instrument with flawless Lakland fretwork and neck refinements make this another of our modern classics.

Similar to our standard 44-64 series body, the custom features a narrower 1.5" tapered neck with fingerboard blocks, binding, and matching headstock. An instant classic!

The Skyline 44-64 Custom mirrors the US made version, and is available in Candy Apple Red.

Features

REINFORCED HEAD

Reinforced head design provides additional strength at necks' weakest point.

FINGERBOARDS

Lakland manufactures three different fingerboards. Our birdseye maple fingerboards feature ebony face dots, while our rosewood fingerboards feature birdseye maple dots. Our ebony fretless fingerboards are available lined, or unlined.

NECK FEATURES

All Lakland necks are manufactured from quarter-sawn maple and feature two graphite reinforcement bars. We have found that these graphite bars help tremendously to minimize dead spots.

BOLTS

The neck is securely bolted to the body using a five-bolt configuration that offers the player unrestricted access to the upper register.

FRETS

The frets are meticulously installed by Lakland luthiers using exacting tolerances that yield superior playability. Each fret end is hand-filed and, when combined with a subtle round-over on the edge of the fingerboard, created the ultimate in comfort.

STRAP BUTTONS

Large Dunlop dual design strap buttons are compatible with Straplok systems.

CUTAWAY

Deep cutaway allows full access to the 22nd fret.

BODY

Southern swamp ash body. The Deluxe adds a figured maple top.

PICKUPS

Lakland pickups, custom wound in Chicago, provide a wide frequency response and diverse tonal range.

BRIDGE

Solid chromed brass bridge plate with all stainless steel parts (saddle, screws, springs) to prevent rust and corrosion throughout life of instrument.

STRING THROUGH

Dual access strings-through body or bridge design.

ELECTRONICS

Internal preamp offers independent cut and boost of bass midrange, and treble. The preamp is extremely versatile and very quiet. Master volume pulls out to defeat internal preamp. Pickup blend control. Bridge pickup coil configuration can be set for a multitude of tonal possibilities.
