    As the title said, I was just wondering if anyone owned a Warwick in Nirvana black. I think the colours on the website are a little dodgy, so I wanted to see what it really looked like. Post a pic if possible, please.

    I don't own one, but I've seen them--it's just a transparent black stain, like any number of other makers who do a transparent black finish. I've only seen them in satin, but Warwick will do it in gloss, too.

    I had a Streamer Stage I in this colour for a short period (oil finish), but ended up swapping it as the neck was twisted. To be honest, it's not a very impressive colour - I'd bought it via mail order and was disappointed with the finish when it arrived. When I swapped it over, I went with a trans blue in high gloss, and am much happier with this colour. I'd like to see the black in high gloss, as the gloss finish really bring the colours out on Warwicks.
