    Picked this one up from BassClubChicago and I must say the pictures don't do justice to the drop dead gorgeous finish. Now I just have to decide what PU/Pre I'm going to mod it with.

    +1. I've seen these in person and they look great! I like this finish much better than the standard -01 tops.

    +1, Seriously considering going with the Bartolini MK5 PUPs and 5.2AP pre and also having Lakland do the work since their local.

    Wow Debbie Downer. Do you tell new parents their babies are ugly too?

    The MK-1's are fine... Live with it for a while and find out what YOU like or don't like about the electronics before you gut it.

    Hey Funky, this is actually my second 01 and was planning on modding the first one but flipped it for a Conklin GT7. The MK1's are cool but I want a more aggressive, versatile yet modern tone and the upgrade suggested should do the trick.

    Uhhh..........the OP's words
    I made a suggestion! I also own a 55-01 and yeah, the MK1's are fine.....if you like that sound! He doesn't and neither do I. :eyebrow: What is it with you guys and the smart remarks?!?!
