    I allways wanted a 55P but 10.000 or more is way out of reach. So I picked up a Custom Shop instead.
    It is a 2006 NOS with some nice battlescars and she sounds fantastic thanks to a SD Quarterpounder. Came with OHSC, Case candy and original pickup.

    One of the nicest Pbass sounds I've heard!

  5. That's a beauty! Congratulations!

    It's just screaming for an Audere four band preamp mod though, preferably with an active/passive option.

    I made the pickguard black to be more authentic. I know they were made in white but still...
    Also now with flats. She sounds so sweet!
