I just bought a 55-02 from a fellow TB'er and was wondering if any 55-02 owners could chime in with some string recommendations. I have the one equipped with the Bartolini pups and preamp. I play mainly with a pick (working on my fingerstyle) No slapping. playing style is everything from Praise & Worship to Toby Mac to Skillet. I'm running through 2 Genz Benz Neox 112's and an Ampeg PF500 head. I would also like to know if there is a noticeable difference when the strings are strung through the body as opposed to through the bridge on this particular bass. The strings that came on it are strung through the bridge.
