cool looking warwick infiniti knock off

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by wotnwhy, Sep 29, 2002.


  1. i was just surfin the web when i came across this absolutely beutiful looking bass, at first i thaught it was a warwick infiniti, but it turned out to be a tanglewood, and it costs only 270 uk pounds! my initial thoughts were that it's probably a cheap and very nasty knock off.

    i was right about the knock off bit, but this thing looks stunning, and i've played tanglewoods before and they were quite nice

    so does anyone have/played one of these? if so please tell me what you think of it

    and does anyone know if they make a 5 string version???

  2. I dont see the resemblance at all.
     
  3. resemblance :

    - they both have 2 pickups, of which one is a jazzpickup, located a the bridge

    - they are both semi-hollowbody

    - they both have holes in the front

    other than that.. beats me :confused:
     
  4. ok, their not as similar as i thaught they were, but if you look at the pic below you can't tell me that tanglewood made up this design on their own, it is obvious they are trying to rip off the warwick infiniti, just like their warrior 1 bass rips off warwicks thumb bass.

    and as i asked earlier, any one here played it?

    It IS a pretty nice looking bass. Not too similar to the Infinity, though, I don't think.

    It must be difficult to come up with a body shape that doesn't resemble some other bass a bit (after all there must be a neck, two horns are common, etc), and f-holes have been done on several basses as well. So it might have been inspired by the Warwick, but I don't see it as similar enough to call it a knockoff.

    Looks OK, even if I personally for some reason don't like green basses at all.
