The 55-02 Deluxe cuts the line between premium quality and affordability, giving you a fantastic looking (and sounding) bass for a great low price. So if you want more from your bass without spending more, the 55-02 Deluxe by Lakland is perfect for you.
Lakland's 55-02 Deluxe Skyline features a distinct and recognizable body shape and a stunning quilted maple top. The comfortable offset waist design lends the bass great balance and playing comfort. The 55-02 Deluxe Skyline even gives you the same contoured body, bridge, and pickups as the original US version. That's why you'll find 55-02 basses backing some of the largest touring acts in the world. Balance, comfort, and great playability are all hallmarks of this 55-02.
No matter what style of music you play, the Lakland pickup system will give you every tone you could want. The 55-02 Deluxe Skyline bass sports the same hand-wound pickups and preamp found on the USA made 44-94. These active electronics give your instrument serious punch and added expression across the whole fingerboard. A dual-coil Lakland humbucking pickup in the bridge delivers fat, aggressive tones, while the Lakland J-style single-coil pickup in the neck position can get mellow and warm.
