    Are there Warmoth bass body designs that really stand out from the crowd in terms of ergonomics while seated/standing, balance and weight?

    This my favorite so far - tele vibe with arm, tummy, and neck heel contours, and deep cutaway for upper feet access. Hits all the marks for me! 6D7C6822-A6CF-49E5-85E3-D9B7CEB6E093. A7DF6F47-14B7-4BF2-84A8-CF01402D92C4. 4E4C0408-E417-496C-A22C-2168F86E9C19.

    Not into 5 strings at all or contours much but that is one of the classiest basses I've seen. That fact it's a one-off build makes it even more sublime.

    Wondering if the Z bass or G4 are superior in terms of ergos and weight...

    If you take a look at the Showcase, you'll see slightly lighter weights on the G4 for sure, probably because of the slimmed horns and the rear-routed control cavity. I have an ash G4 body myself that was 4 lbs. 6 oz. before routing for the twin MM pups and 7/8" output jack hole. IMO, the huge control cavity (when rear-routed) can keep the weight down. I can't address ergonomics- that's a matter of preference, and mine is not yet built up.
