    Every once and a while we run across stock, production basses that sound great, and this 55-02 at the top of that list. I was playing through an Aguilar 700w head and a 2x12 Peavey cabinet with tweeters and ports. This bass has tone for days. Seriously, I recorded this entire video with the onboard bass eq pot completely turned off! I got confused, and did turn on the bass eq pot until a second video!

    Not surprised. I’ve had a couple 55-02’s and they were both excellent basses.

    I finally realize halfway through the clip, I had not turned on the bass eq on the 55-02.

    Are you saying you play so loud that you don't even need an amplifier? :wideyed:

    That’s the bass tone that I love!

    No, the 55-02 has a three band preamp, and I was playing the bass in active mode without having the bass eq turned at all.

    Your comment at the end of the video is so true!
