My new baby: Warwick FNA Jazzman LTD '02

  1. Ohhhhhh, I am in heaven! It had the Victor Wooten tone right outta the bag, kinda like a Thumb bass. I have since been able to dial up a plethora of great useable sounds.
     
  2. Sweet bass, congrats. I wish I could afford to get one of the 5 string versions...:)

    Very, very nice. That wood combo is stunning. Congrats on the new Warwick.

  7. Hey. I just bought one too!!!

    I've got a little trouble figuring out what all knobs on this bass do...

    left to right:

    stacked volume / pan with slap-switch (pull)

    bass-mid-treble knobs

    BUT the last knob on the right is stacked as well... what does it do (together with that eq?)

    damn you have my dream bass. that bass has so much punch that it seems like you are getting hit in the chest when you slap.

    Ok, going from the neck to the bridge

    1st stacked pot: bottom is pickup pan/selector, top is volume, pull out for passive (in for active)

    2nd pot: treble

    3rd pot: mids

    4th stacked pot: bottom is bass, top is passive tone control

    Here's mine

    Omg, you bastards :p

    That and the Streamer Stg II are my dream basses.

    How much do the LTD 02's go for when they pop up used?

    Isn't it in the manual? Or check at the Warwick site, there are lot's of wiring schematics and control layouts there
     
  13. Nope, not in the manual for the ltd model. The first stacked push/pull knob is a slap switch though. It boost the lows and the highs and cuts mids.

    Are you sure it's for the slap contour? Take the battery out to check, but mine is definitely an active passive switch (original pre-amp)

    There were two preamps: one was a SD pre, 3-band with slap contour; the other was a MEC 3-band with active/passive switch

    I didn't know however, that the two were both in the LTD02s. The older FNA Jazzman series had the SD, the newer ones the MEC pres
     
  18. So. If I take the battery out and the bass still works when I pull that knob it means it's a 'passive switch', yes?
