The Skyline 55-01 Electric Bass Guitar retains the entire key features that experience made Lakland the collection of professionals: ash body, flat-sawn maple neck with graphite reinforcement bars, Bartolini MK1 split-coil soapbar pickups, and 3-band buffered active preamp. Controls include cut/spice up bass, mid, and treble; a panning-style pickup blend; and master volume (with pull-out switching to avoid EQ). 35″ scale. Lakland Skyline luthiers now do their fret work the use of Plek technology to assure optimum playability. Plek is a CAD/CAM machine with scanning capability. It was once developed to accomplish high-speed, highly accurate fret dressing, nut and bridge slotting and shaping, and engraving work. When utilized by an experienced luthier, the Plek machine produces necks with fretwork and action that equal the easiest handwork and does it consistently.
