    Not bad, but I think Warwick may call about the headstock. Good lookin' bass though.
     
  3. i like it. the body shape seems a little unique, but its a sweet lookin' bass none the less.

  5. im not so sure id be willing to drop 2 grand on it. maybe if i got to play it first. its still a nice bass though.
     
  6. Very nice looking bass. The only thing that bothers me a little is that the pickups are very close together. Since most bassists use the bridge pickup when playing solo, how is the sound reproduction relating to clarity?

    Every hear a 5 or 6 string Warwick Thumb bass? Probably one of the most clear and punchy tones to be had on bass. Those pickups look to be a bit further away from the bridge than a Thumb's pickups, and they're Barts, so I imagine the same clarity inherent in a Thumb bass would be present, but with a bit more low end rumble.

    I don't like how the angle of the strings changes so drastically after the nut. That's just excessive stress on the nut.

    None.

    hmm...i don't think it is that severe.

    plus, you can tell the tuner centerlines follow the headstock side curves nicely.

    - pretty cool looking.
    - seems to have that Warwic flat-square neck profile.
    - I would love to see a side shot of the head/neck area. That volute seems to drop off to near nothing at the headstock. I wonder how the joint is made.
