Old-school tone with new-school playability and punch.
The Skyline Hollowbody results from the collaboration between master bass builder Michael Tobias and Lakland that led to the development of the original Hollowbody. This version features the same 2-piece construction and cavity dimensions as the US-made model giving it a similar thick and rich tone with fantastic definition. Adding to its classy, vintage vibe, a single f-hole recalls the model's acoustic instrument heritage.
The natural tone is complemented by a set of CS Series Chi-Sonic pickups. Dial in a wide array of sounds with the volume, tone, and 3-way toggle. From deep, authoritative notes reminiscent of an upright to aggressive and throaty sounds capable of cutting through as a solo voice, the Hollowbody is responsive, with a solid tonal center that many hollow basses lack.
Lakland luthiers now do their fret work using Plek technology to assure optimum playability. Plek is a CAD/CAM machine with scanning capability. It was developed to perform high-speed, highly accurate fret dressing, nut and bridge slotting and shaping, and engraving work. When used by an experienced luthier, the Plek machine produces necks with fretwork and action that equal the very best handwork and does it consistently. Case sold separately.
