There it is. In all it's funkin' glory. It's coming July 2014. What do you guys think?
I won't be a customer of it, now some of the other Warwick's sure! But a big no on that one.
This bass certainly is not for everyone. I would never buy something like this as its physical appearance is only for funk and similar genres, but I find it nice none the less.
bootsy has more endorsements and products he supposedly uses than anyone i can think of. even star basses, there are probably 5 or 6 companies...
i love bootsy. always have, always will.
but i won't ever buy a star bass... its his thing.... not mine
I wish I could pull off wearing that on stage. But I can't.
Is that a bass or a weapon?
I like it, but man, if you show up to a gig with that bass, you better be ready to stand and deliver. It requires star power to wear a star bass. Something Bootsy has oodles of, but me, well, not so much.
I will buy it if I have the chops but with my mediocre skills and a bass like that people will be convinced that I am a clown.
I think it's useless to me for anything more than a wall decoration.
I would buy it in a heart beat if it was affordable. Now if someone would release an Eddie Hazel sixer the world would be back in balance,The Maggot overlord would be banished, Sir Nosedevoidoffunk would be imprisoned and we would forever be on the one.
I love Bootsy, but I would never buy a Star Bass.
Wow. Glad to see that Bootsy has narrowed it down to three pickups instead of the 27 pickups on the prototype.
I don't like "regular" Warwicks, but this one is even more douchey. No thanks.
Hmm...trying to think of how much you'd have to pay me to be seen in public with that thing. lol
I do love Bootsy though. Can't think of many others who can pull off what Bootsy does. He's like the Little Richard of bassists.
His bass: .............
If I was doing my old funk cover gig where we all dressed up like idiots and wore Afro wigs, it would fit.
Having said that, this ain't a $500 prop. I bet it is $4-6k+.
Not a smart move on Warwick's part IMO.... How many of these would they seriously expect to sell?
Actually that was 5 pickups not 27! Bootsy is cool but trying to short-change us on pickups is reason enough for me to not get one! How can you play exactly like Bootsy if you don't have the exact gear he plays?
