Way off the deep end! Just like the 44-01, dual Bartolini MK-1 split-coil soapbars are coupled with the MK-1 preamp. The 44's and 55's have that deep Lakland cutaway on the high register side of the neck that allows easy access to ALL 22 frets up the neck for throwing licks on top of your grooves.

And we have said it before: 35-inch scale necks make for killer low B's! That is why the low tones on Skyline 5-string basses boom with piano-like clarity!

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.
