Here's your chance to get the 55-01 you've been GASing for...for only $445!!! (Includes light gig bag. At this price, buyer contributes an additional $40 for shipping, I'll pay the rest). US Lower 48 only. Trade value will be higher, depending on what you have. PM me with offers (5-string basses, effects, no amps or cabs though). Structurally and cosmetically it's in nice shape--plays GREAT, only some minor dings. A little discoloration on the back of the neck and fretboard--looks like it's just from being played, so I'm guessing it can be cleaned up. Never bothered me enough to try, though. Here are the reasons for the low price: battery compartment door is gone. The battery actually fits quite snugly and I generally need to use a coin or tool to pop it out, so I can't see it ever falling out on a gig. If it bugs you, get a new door or just use duct tape (I don't--as I said, the battery stays put). I think this bass has been rewired--the mid knob is a pull-pot, but pulling it doesn't do anything (on a stock 55-01 I believe it defeats the onboard EQ--kind of a useless feature anyway IMO). Also, the pickup pan works in "reverse" like a Sadowsky (rolling forward selects the bridge PUP. The bass drains the battery even when unplugged, so I remove the battery when not using the bass. Otherwise they don't last very long. Considering this is a fully gigable bass that sounds and plays fanstastic, this is a steal at only $445 including a gig bag (again, +$40 shipping due to the ridiculous price). Again, will only ship to US lower 48. Cash price is FIRM. Or PM with trades/partial trades. Thanks!!
