Warwick "W" bass ? What the ...........?
I came across a Warwick "W" bass for sale this morning . Got a kick out of it, never seen one before. Seems to be a Rock Bass . Just curious.
Well, it actually sorta works as a playable instrument (at least from just looking at it). Whether it would neck dive or not is another question. I don't imagine Fender attempting such a marketing tool. :rolleyes:

Bloody hideous! IMO.

Tried ot out for a few minutes, it plays but sound very cheap and lacks any character. Sales guy agried it is just a marketing tool. Bad marketing, if you ask me.

If Warwick is your be all, end all of brands, I say go for it. If not, it's like an expensive beer neon light for your garage. if it's cheap, buy it for the parts if nothing else.

I'm not really interested in buying it . Didn't know these existed , so it surprised me when I saw it. Just thought I'd share the pictures of it here since it seemed like such a strange bass. Obviously a marketing gimmick .

As usual with warwick and specifically in this case;
ahhh, it will stand up against an amp stably (at least it's not an upside down flying V)... ahhh, it's a ok colour... ahhh it's probably cheaper than the Bootsy star bass... ahhh, :rollno::rollno::rollno:

If I'm not mistaken, that bass was built from someone else that gave it as a gift to warwick for their 30th anniversary. They found it fun and decided to produce the same bass.
I guess it makes people talk about them and can't disappointed, because no one actually thinks this could possibly be a serious instrument ;)

I am sure it is not meant as a serious bass , more of a nostalgia , souvenier type thing. Your right about the 30th anniversary , here is a closeup picture of the neck .
