Most metal bass ever! (Warwick content)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Veldar, Jan 15, 2013.

  1. So Warwick updated their site with some new rockbasses and this came up.


    So yeah I'm sold, as well as this there's a upright and a dark lord now in the rockbass lineup.

    Cheers, Sam

    Is that a Black Satin Finish? Best finish for metal indefinetly.

    Gotta admit they did a pretty good job w that one there. :) How many companies can turn their logo into a bass without it looking completely ridiculous. I'm a fan.

    How much does something like that go for? Surprised that it's a rockbass.

    Rammstein, Lordi, Gwar... maybe even for Muse

    I always thought metal was a matter of manly fury power and speed, not kitsch, but I must often be definitely wrong:scowl:

    It's a W.
    To be "Most Metal", it needs to be turned around.
    Metal starts with M.

    Wow, wonder how comfortable it really is to play that, however most should never have a problem identifying the manufacturer of that one ;)
  8. Well, it could be Wetal. Or maybe Weath Metal, perhaps?

    As a huge Warwick fan, I would hang that on my wall.... but that's about it.

    I think you've got it figures, looks like that's exactly the point of the bass.

    No, the finish is Black Satan.
  13. Is Framus gonna have a new guitar shaped like the letter "F"? Quite a few uses for that. Haha!

    Unless your band name starts with "W" that would be a completley waste of money :) IMO, of course :)

  16. I know it's sacrilege to post a gui**r in here, but this is the first thing I was reminded of.

  17. Dude! You're the target audience of this bass! Your name is Wallace; this bass would be the ultimate self-promotion.

  18. Weirdly interesting.
  19. Whoa! In all the commentary regard the W bass, I missed your comment that the Rockbass lineup now includes an upright. Very cool!
