Hey ya'll! My new 55-02 came in Friday and it is unbelivable. It's black with a beautifull rosewood fretboard (very brazilian looking) and of course I got the Bassline pickups. This is my second Lakland and it was worth the wait. I'm going to put a silver glitter pickguard on it soon. By the way go to www.pickguardparadise.com and look at this guys stuff. Anyway it sounds and plays amazing. IF I wasn't so cheap I would be a supporting member and post pictures. Life is good.
