Lakland Skyline Series 55-OS 5-String Bass, Maple Fretboard, Translucent Black


Manufacturer's Description

Versatility with high-end features! The 55-OS utilizes the classic Lakland body shape but in a slightly modified Offset design. Outfitted with a pair of Bartolini MK-1 split-coil soap bar pickups and a Bartolini HR-5.4 AP 3-band onboard preamp this bass has it all! Bass, Midrange, and Treble boost cut controls and you can even select alternate midrange frequencies via a 3-way mini switch. Dial in an amazing variety of tones, from modern slap, to warm fingerstyle to aggressive picked tones. The 35″ scale neck is fast and smooth providing the killer B sound Lakland 5’s are famous for. All black hardware rounds out the package!
