    So I got my 55-02 Deluxe Cherry Burst Maple bass today. Initial impression is very good. I'll be gigging it the next three nights - "smooth" jazz gig and a couple nights of "cover band" stuff.
    Pics when I get time, but you know how they look - sweet quilt top, and the back is a beautiful shade of "cherry" red - it should really be the front.
  2. sounds nice man. congrats :smug:

  11. I don't SEE any NEW bass. In fact I can't even hear it!!! congrats on your new PHANTOM bass ;-)
  12. When you finally get pics of your bass then lets talk about this so called bass you've got. Until then no pics - no bass.:rollno:

    I'm busy gigging this wee. I'll get some pics up as soon as I can.

    They did tell me that a couple people were looking at it when I bought it. Sorry. But hey, I flip basses so fast you can probably get this one in a couple weeks.
  15. Yea I prolly would to. I went ahead and ordered one I'm waiting on it now...

    With my Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0-12T stacked on a Shuttle 12T Extension cab at the gig tonight.

  17. Nice! how did it work out tone wise?

    Well, it was hard to tell in that venue - a "hallway" in a hockey arena. I can tell that all 7 variations of pickup configuration yield a noticeable and sometimes significant change in tone. I didn't even touch the preamp. Left it flat all weekend.

    I have a more intimate restaurant/jazz setting this weekend so I'll have a better idea then I think.

    The neck feels really nice - even at 35" which is often uncomfortable for me. It's nice and light which is a plus. The finish is sweet.
  19. Thats cool I cant wait to get mine. I just hope the lows are as powerful and tight as some say.

    This may be for sale. Not sure if can do 35" scale.
