Lakland Skyline 55-02 Custom Bass Guitar - Candy Apple Red with Maple Fingerboard

The Skyline 55-02 Custom model is the same great bass as the 55-02 Standard, but with matching headstock color and a bound Maple fingerboard with pearl block inlays.

Seen on the world’s largest stages, the 55-02 has an active punch that will drive your sound clearly through any mix, with ‘best in class’ tonality for a versatile and refined fit for any playing situation.

  • Features 35″ scale neck for better B string tone and tight, deep bottom
  • Features Lakland hand-wound LH3 pickups and onboard preamp

The LH3 pickups (wound in Lakland's shop in Chicago) and onboard preamp are the same components you’ll find in their legendary USA Series 55-94. (powered by a single 9-volt battery that can be changed by removing a simple snap-on battery cover – no screws to lose!) Internal dip switches let you select the midrange boost/cut frequency.

The neck is the same 35” scale, profile and spec as our USA series 55-94 which has won over legions of professionals because of its great feel, string spacing and most importantly, a B string with tight punchy clarity that lives with the other 4 strings in perfect harmony.
