    It's here!!!:D My new Signiture 6 string Warrior came today. It is the nicest looking, nicest sounding bass I have ever played. The Action is unbelievably low, with zero fret buzz.

    The bass has an antique Signiture Mahogany body(over 200 years old!). It has a vintage Black Walnut neck with a strip of Purple Heart running down the centre and an ebony fret board. The top is rare Signiture Quilt Babinga, and is extremely figured. There is a very thin strip of Maple between the body and top.

    The Fingerboard looks like it has a mountain on it with the Sword stuck in it. JD(owner of Warrior) thought it looked so cool(it is the natural figuring of the wood), he decided not to dye it.

    The bass sounds amazing! It is deep and full sounding, with a sweet mid range. It has a mean slap tone. Passive it sounds very clear and warm. Very nice for chording. Active, I can get some mean growl out of it! It plays soooo nice!
    :D :D :D

    Aesthetically speaking I'm often unimpressed with sandwich basses, even when the most beautiful woods are used in their construction. I've seen hideous (IMO) basses by Fodera, Alembic, and other top boutique builders (even Warrior).

    Yours however, is one of the nicest I've seen. The woods compliment each other beautifully.

    Here is an overview of the bass:

    I loving this bass more and more! It plays so well.

    I chose to get Bartolini electronics in the bass, with an 18volt Bartolini pre-amp. The cool thing about this setup is that the bass sounds completely natural. It's amplified tone is the same as it's acoustic tone.
    It has a lot of mid-range in the tone(complements of the vintage mahogany), and is incredibly sweet and clear sounding. It's so nice!:D :D

    As for cost......I'll just say I worked hard....very hard!!:)
