    Selling my trusty 55-01 as I am having a major GAS attack. I purchased this bass on TB about 2 years ago and it is in great shape. I have gone through a couple of different pickup/pre configurations and just recently put in a new set of Nordstrand Big Splits and an Audere Pro Z 4 band pre (stacked hi mid/low mid and bass/treble). This bass plays and sounds fantastic, but unfortunately does not get as much love as I play my 55-60 all the time.

    Pictures show a few more smudges and swirls (should have cleaned it before the pictures), but otherwise there is almost not a mark on it. There is a scratch/indentation on the back of the neck at the 9th fret that was there when I got it. It probably could be buffed out, but I never bothered. Strings are month old Lakland Nickels and the action is set up medium-low. Truss rod works great. The pickguard is held on with double sided tape and comes right off. Case is a good condition TKL with the usual minor scratches and dings, but the latches and hinges are all in great shape.

    I am looking for $700 shipped to the CONUS. I have a LOT more into this than that (isn't that always the case?), but feel this is a fair price given you are getting a great bass with brand new pickups ($200) and preamp (also $200).

    As far as trades, I am looking for a 4 string Stingray but also would consider a Lakland 55-02 and would be open to adding cash as necessary.

    Thanks. The Nordy's are amazing and to my have almost all the benefit of single coils without the noise. I also am totally an Audere Fan and have played several others. I love that it really gives you the active eq but in output and tone you it is a passive bass. You even plug it in to the passive input in your amp! Most times I actually use the pickup blend as my "tone" control, I set the bass to the room, and then use the hi and lo mids for punch and presence in the mix, rarely needing to add much and the bass just jumps out. The Z mode switch is also cool but hasn't really worked for me live. I have talked to the guys at Audere and they told me there design is really to take what your bass and pickups are giving and just bring it to the front without any color. To my ears they really have it nailed. .
