OK, I'm looking to go back to a meat-and-potatoes 5-string from a Peavey Cirrus 6 and am very interested in exploring the Lakand skyline route. As soon as I'm able to, I'll be going to my local dealer to try out some basses. In the meantime, can you all provide some specific input/feedback/opinions on the 55-01 versus the 55-01 NTMB versus the 55-02? I've heard a lot of people say they prefer the 55-01 to the 55-02, but there's been very little explanation of why that is, and there's usually no mention of the 55-01 upgrade. I guess what I'm after are specifics in terms of tonal strengths, weaknesses, limitations, differentiations, etc. What do these three basses actually sound like, on their own and in comparison to one another? Sound clips would be cool if anyone has the wherewithal to post them! Thanks in advance -- I need to get my mind off this so I can concentrate on other things!
