First of all, I have searched related topics to this, but they haven't given me the answers I was looking for. The Curbow is well within my price range as I've decided to move up to a 5 string, and I really haven't heard anything bad about it. Well built, good hardware and pickups, sounds good etc. However I have read that the body over a period of time (say a few years) has began to warp. Now since most bass review sites (harmony central etc) feature reviews by people who have had the bass for a month or two, I haven't really been able to find much information from people who have had their Curbow for a few years. So, if anyone has been a long time Curbow owner, I'm really interested in finding out what you think of it in terms of quality etc, and if there have been any serious problems (like bowing). Thanks for your help.
