    I've got this great 55-02, awesome bass. Great tone, playability, construction and electronics.

    Right now it has Lakland roundwounds, which sound good, but I just prefer the feel of flats, and I run the treble cut all the way too. I guess I just prefer more thump than zing.

    Has anyone put flats on one these basses?

    I prefer a lower tension string, and I don't really want a complete thud monster either, I have a '76 P for that.

    TI jazz flats will get called... I know I've heard a few guys matching them together.

    but Check my thread from the other day here in strings on the D'Addario XL Half Rounds
