    The brown truck finally came yesterday. Here are some pics of my 55-02. I got a weird kinda fettish for red basses. Don't know why. :)

    I have never owned a CAR bass, but of all the solid colors that's my fav. Yours look great but I'd add a white 'guard to give it a more classic look.

    keep groooovin

    Welcolm aboard,
    I know what ya mean about dem red basses, I own 2 red jazzes and a cherryburst 55-01. It took alot not to buy the bing cherry FMT V so I got the amber instead.

    Congrats and goodluck!

    I'm getting the 55-01 3-tone sunburst with quilted maple top and maple fretboard. It has the Bartolini pickups. I can't wait!

    How bout a personal review? I've always been interested in the 55-02.. Since that is one I can afford at the time.

    Excellent choice for your first five-string Fret Boiler! The CAR looks nice. I went with a cheapo ($200 Peavey) at first. Then I got serious and went with a burgundy 55-94. These babies are sweet. BIG sound. Comfy neck. 8.9 pounds of tone! Don't let your face get TOO tired from the Lakie-induced smile... :)
