    I went to Guitar Center the other day. I found a bass from a company called "Boogie Bodies" I loved it. It was about 3 to 4 inches shorter than a P-bass or J-bass, but it had a full scale length (34"). It had an ebony fretboard, and a solid rosewood neck, and a spalted maple top. The bass was very light, and had an EMG soapbar. I want to know if anybody has seen/played one of these (I think the model name is claw (??)). Anyway, I want some feedback.

    On a side note, I played all the Warwicks they had in stock, and hated them. Not that they did not feel well-built, and had excellent fretwork (the fretted ones, at any rate), but they didn't have the 'right' feel or tone. I played a stingray, and a sterling, and loved those. Tried the Ibanez SR (5- string) and was not impressed. Not like anybody cares, though.

    I'm pretty sure "Boogie Bodies" is now Warmoth. Give Ken Warmoth an email, and he will probably tell you everything you ever wanted to know about it...
