From Bass Central earlier this week. I was able to compare several (fretted) BO vs. NT and like the NTs better, but they were awful heavy (especially the 5 string). Expensive too! This bass is noticably heavier than the BO5 I tried at GC, but still not as heavy as the NTs. I've also never seen nicer wood on a BO! Ebony board has some subtle wavey grain that dosn't show in the pics. The flash really brought out the quillting. It's more subtle in person and changes pretty radically from different angles and lighting - very cool. This thing's got a monster sound - similar at times to both Zon and Wal fretless - crazy mwah. I've never seen lower action on a factory setup. I had to raise it a bit actually, cause the strings'd slap the pups occasionally. Also to improve the tone a bit, which it did. The adjustment couldn't have been easier! Props to Warwick on the adjust-a-nut II and bridge design.
