    Thanks to all who helped when I asked about them a little while ago. Those posts and all the others I found when I searched on helped persuade me.

    I just got off the phone with Gard at Bass Central and my new natural/rosewood 55-02 should be on my doorstep early to mid next week. Gonna be a long week waiting for it to get here. A picture of it is below.

    Thanks again, all!

    Nice looks... I got a sunburst myself... rosewood fretboard too. It sounds really awesome for the money!

    I have a 55-02 fretless, the only imported bass I own. It is so so so sweet, I mean sweeeet! :p

    Beautiful bass, I know you will love it.

    Excellent timing on a great bass!! I just got word yesterday that there may be a slight price increase on the 55-02's after NAMM!

    Gard's still kinda a moe but you'll love the bass!!

    +1, except mine's a burst with maple, and I'd just say it sounds awesome PERIOD. :)


    I think I may feel a "55-02 users unite - post pix" thread coming on soon... ;)

    Congrats! Ever played one before? If not, you might wanna' have some fresh underwear handy for when you first play it plugged in... ;)
