This is my main bass. 5-string. With DR Fatbeams (Marcus Miller). I can get a near precision bass tone, a good jazz bass tone, and supposedly a MM Stingray tone. All maple neck/fretboard. With a mighty swing of this axe one could send medium to large woodland creatures to their heaven. This is one versatile bass.
Why would you want to own one? More than just protection from woodland creatures, this baby is a tone monster. Slapalapable (except I’m turrible). Tight “B” string, because of its 35″ neck, and sturdy. And it’s hella cheaper than the 55-94 5-String (its boutique cousin).
Ok, I admit it. Not a fair comparison. A cake vs a real bass. One is probably yummy, one sounds yummy. One feels nice on your fingers, the other gets your fingers messy. See, that’s why you want the 55-02. Order it from bassnw.com, they’re cool, and bassy and stuff. Get black and maple. Cause it’s darker than the other paint jobs.
Well, that’s fingerstyle friday. Has little to nothing to do with writing, or novels, or being an author. But…bass players are cool…and remember:
What do you call a beautiful woman on a bassist’s arm?
Keep it low. 😀
