    ok, it arrived yesterday:)

    2 octaves per string (24 "frets")
    2 x jazz bass barts with a 3 band eq + variable midrange swich
    neck through body design.
    i`m not sure about the woods, but I guess you guys will help me with that one.

    it obviously looks a bit like a warwick, but it has a great, jazz-like neck.

    string tension is superb, the bass has a nice sustain and sounds much more "woody" than my mij ibanez. i`m falling in love:)

    sorry about the photo quality, the light isn`t to great now...

  3. WOODS???

    Looks awesome!

    The body looks warwickish.. like a streamer - corvette combo.. I love how it looks. And the headstock looks like a blend between warwick and Esh..
     
  4. It has a warwick bridge, check out the 'W'.

    Was it supposed to have warwick parts?

    They`re reliable. They`re cheap. They`re black.

    That would actualy be the ideal bass for me... if it was headless. I love Warwicks...... but i cant afford one yet. Wah.

    Looks killer! How much did it set you back (if you don't mind me asking)?

    it`s used but in nearly mint condition.

    i paid 550$ with a hardcase shell and a leaher belt + straplocks. new one would be around 750-800$
