    Ebony finger board...mother of pearl inlays...26 frets...5 string...damn I want one! :D
     
  2. Me too. Too bad they cost so much. There are basses I'd rather have for much cheaper.

    the thing is, it looks like it comes from B.C. Rich, not Warwick. It has none of that smooth, natural, woody vibe that the other Warwicks have. Never played one, and it probably sounds great and warwicky. Don't get me wrong, I think it looks cool, but I prefer the woodish vibe.

    Wow... When I first saw this body style I thought it was absolutely fugly, but I have to admit, that does look pretty cool... especially in those colors.

    I'd buy one if I had all that money and nothing else to spend it on :)

    I don't know what to think of the bass clef inlays. Sure its cool to do something different, but its not different enough to make it special. Maybe if they has put just one at the twelveth fret. Or if it switched over to treble when it got up near 26.

    Am I missing something here? I don't really understand what you said old-skool.
     
  9. If you like the shape but can't afford a Warwick, there's always the RockBass version. There are also a lot of basses out there that actually look good.
     
  10. I'd have the neck . Without the inlays , of course .

    Yeah I see where your coming from. To be honest, I don't like them as the shapes arent symmetrical and dont occupy a set frame/radius like a dot or square would, so look overbalanced and uneavenly placed....

    hmm

    Re: the bass: If I won it from Bassplayer, I would keep it if it souded and felt incredible. Otherwise, it would meet with either the auction block or a jigsaw.

    Re: bass clef inlays: I prefer a single one, like this:

  13. OK, Warwick is officially on the road to crap....or maybe more....
     
  14. Nice features and all, but way to B.C. Rich-ish to ever make it into my aresenal. I need something atleast somewhat traditional.

    jtbp
     
  15. I don't like it at all, but I'd like it a little more if the headstock at leat matched the body. you got that nice, subtle headstock on that pionty body... makes the body look even worse.
     
  16. exactly.

    warwick is just trying to make a quick buck.:rolleyes:

  19. that warwick's body is just UGH if you ask me...and the inlays are over-doing it quite a bit. gaudy.
