    I was at a music shope last week and they had a tone of basses, from Ibanez to Alembic.. well i saw a warwick bass, the likes of which I have never seen. It had a beige like pickguard with lipstick p'ups. One at near the neck and 2 sidebyside towards the bridge.. It sounded decent but i had never seen this thing before.. it was strange. Anyone know what bass I'm talking about?

    The bass you saw was a Warwick Fortress Flashback. They are intended to have a more traditional look and feel. I havent heard anything about them but IMO they look good.

    yeah It played pretty sweetly... it was cool and different.. but I can't deny the sexual greatness of my beast the stingray5 :)

    oh baby, i played one a few years ago when they still made them, it was a 5 i think...

    very unique and vintage sounding, but VERY cool. definitely on my list of basses to own.
