Anyone play a Warmoth five string?

    I have been researching pickups and such, and have so far only heard good things about Warmoth. I am wondering how those who have played their deluxe five necks like them. How is the feel, playability, and how is the tone and feel of the B? I would like to get some impressions of these before I pull the trigger, but I probably will anyway! Again, I appreciate any info or impressions of these basses. :cool:

    I have a warmoth deluxe 5. I like the feel of the Deluxe 5 neck better than the neck on my Fender Am. Dlx. V. It probably has the most to do with the Assymetric profile. Mine has a satin finish as well, which is faster feeling than the gloss on the Fender. The fretwork is also better on the warmoth, as well as stability through changing weather.

    I don't feel that I can comment on the feel or tone of the B string, since no two warmoths will be the same. There are so many options as far as bridges, woods, pickups, and most importantly strings that a comparison would be pointless. Basically I believe that the warmoth B is going to be the same as any other similarly equipped 34" scale bass.

    BTW- you have PM
