Our Skyline 44-64 shares the same aesthetics and Lakland split coil hybrid pickup as the USA Series version, capturing the rich and defined power of the early basses that revolutionized the four-string low-end world. The tone and power of a well-preserved vintage instrument with flawless Lakland fretwork and neck refinements makes this a modern classic.

The 44-64 Custom PJ expands upon the 44-64 by adding a single coil "J" style bridge pickup into the mix for added versatility. Additionally, the Custom adds a 1.5" (J) neck taper with pearl block inlay markers, matching headstock color and bound Indian rosewood fingerboard. Ice Blue model features a maple unbound fingerboard with special abalone accented position markers.

I initially wanted to return this bass for a Spector Euro 4LX without having played it first. My concerns were rooted in previous reviews for Skyline series basses and the issues with quality and sound with the lack of a 2 or 3-band preamp for flexibility.Absolutely stunned at how well this bass sounds after getting over the small build issues. This thing punches well above its weight.
The materials are what you'd expect from a guitar in this price point.
Ease of Use
Almost too easy. It's a very simple setup and ultra versatile when dialing in predictable tones from the jazz or P pickups. Absolutely floored at how well this bass sounds in recordings, etc.
Build quality is questionable. The packaging from the manufacturer is absolutely abysmal and surprised it made it here without much damage. The guitar arrived with a detached knob, shifted nut and misaligned saddles. I've been working with guitars for around 2 decades, so this wasn't much of an issue for me as it was requiring a setup like 99.9999999997% of new instruments do.
An absolute steal. Sounds and feels better than most guitars in its price range and even beyond.
