These just recently came out, and they look incredible. They are kind of a DJ look with 55-02 versatility. My opinion is that these are objectively the best designed basses on the market. I have never found myself not being able to get a sound I want. The ONLY reason it is going is to fund the purchase of a US 55-14 which is the exact same design only made in the US. Weight is about the same as the other 5 string Lakland I posted at around 9.6 lbs on my bathroom scale. Price includes shipping in a brand new gigbag. No noticeable dings, but they are hard to spot in the metallic white finish. It's been gigged but never bumped/dropped and always cased.
