the Jack Bruce Warwick is indeed a beautiful bass
But I couldnt see it costing $9,000
Maybe someone see's that as a fair price though, I dunno
Gotta admit that is just too much, you could have the craziest Jerzy Drozd, Ritter, Fodera or whatever floats your boat for that money. Someone will hopefully have the sense to OBO it.
In the add I saw, Jack Bruce said he liked the way the bass looked, nothing about sound or playability
It's a bit too much!!!
But a nice Warwick anyway...
If it's good enough for Jack. Its good enough for me.
But also Jack probly has way more money then I do.
From the photos I've seen of the Cream reunion gigs, it seems tha Jack didn't touch the reunion bass, just had it standing on stage by his amps.
If you think that bass is expensive, a shop in London has a Gibson "Cream reunion" Clapton ES335 for £9999GBP - that's about £18,000USD. Nothing special about it - just a plain red guitar.
Didn't realise that Cream were playing in NYC: www.cream2005.com
Must pick up the Royal Albert Hall DVD this weekend.
well its street price in europe is like 4800-->$+-5800USD plus american taxes so yes it might be like $2000-3000USD overpriced
I've watched the DVD almost completly, and he didn't use the reunion Warwick at all.
It was on display, as you said, I guess he just doesn't like to play it! Tells me enough...
So, if it wasn't good ebough for Jack. It's not good enough for me.
Those are exactly my thoughts... If he doesn't play it why should I???
Coz you have selfsteem and like to chose by yourself whatever piece of wood you r going to play maybe???
How much does the bass weigh? I read in a review of the concert that Jack, at one point, started leaning up against a chair/amp(?) so maybe he just can't physically play it.
Nothing to do with self esteem. I simply can't see myself spending $9000 on an instrument that is especially made for and closely associated with a bass player who obviously doesn't like to play it (whatever the reason might be). If it was a fine instrument, Jack would've certainly used it with Cream at the reunion concerts. The fact that he doesn't is a bad omen in my book, but maybe he'll give it some playing time at the NYC gigs.
