    I know 55-02s were first made in 2002, but can anybody tell what was the first month of production? My 55-02 was made in 2002, and I want to know if it was one of the first.:confused:

    The serial number reads year / month, so find out what month they started making them and you're on your way.

    Mine was made August 2002. That is why I want to know when in 2002 did Lakland start making them.

    Hi Doc...

    I used to own a 55-02 made in February 2002, (s/n 02023972). According to Dan, that's one of the first one's made.

    Hope that helps.

    That's good to know. Mine is early, but definitely not the earliest.:)

    I appreciate history. I knew that the 55-02 was first created in 2002, and since my bass is from that first year, it would be cool to know that it is one of the first.:)

    Are you guys sure about the serial #s? I bought mine in January 05, and the first numbers in the serial # are 0408. According to that I won't buy it until next month :)

    That means it was made in August 2004. Since you bought it in January, it was not on the wall very long at all.;)
