    I've been hearing rumours that Warwick's UK distibutor Music & Audio Distribution has gone bust. Just wondering if any one else has heard more? I hope it gets sorted soon, as a new bass and cab are calling ;)
     
  2. Not heard that, they were out in force at Music Live, they seem to have their fingers in a lot of other pies aside from Warwick. When I was playing Warwicks, Ben who works for them was allways a top geezer, very helpful!

    i talk to ben quite often... he is indeed a top bloke. I have found out that the rumour was started by a fender rep... who said something to any employee of a local music store, a friend of mine works there.
