    I see it as two reasons, it seems there are a lot of famous artists using warwick in addition a similar bass specs and style would run $3,000. And up. Thus making the warwick brand very appealing. I use a $$ 5 corvette, I want a 4 string with the same pickup configuration but it seems impossible to find and the ones that I do find are almost $1000. More than I paid of my 5 string. Supply and demand!

    Check out 12 foot ninja for a killer warwick sound.
