My Warwick is back.
Here's how it looked:
And here's how it looks now:
And here's closer look at the finish:
the color is supposed to be lake placid blue
anyway I just wanted to share
comments are welcome (good and bad)
Very, very funky. I normally really like natural finishes but for some reason I don't like that bass in natural transparent nearly as much as I dig it in that blue color. Slick!
I'd say better before. Now kinda looks like a solid color rockbass. I mean, the finish is done very well and would ususally be a good color. But that wenge neck really fights with that color. A lighter color neck would have went really well w/ that color.
I had intended it to be funky the old finish was some sort of plain wood color that luthier couldn't get out of the wood so I chose funky & sparkling lake placid blue
Forgive me 8_finger but I prefer the natural color
i prefer the natural too, but the blue is definitely pretty snazzy.
cool color; i definitely dig it. i just wouldn't have chosen that color for that particular bass. it just seems like the kind of finish for a stingray or something. and i'm a total sucker for natural finishes, anyway.
It looks like a whole new bass! They did a great job.
Actually I also prefernatural finishes but the old finish was catastrophy: paint wasn't the original color - it was color people usually use to paint fences, plus it was schratched badly. I got this warwich cheap because of that.
So I decided the bass needs new finish, after a while luthier did what he could and still the old paint couldn't be removed. Next choice was lake placid blue
looks alot better i think! were did you get it done at and how much did it cost?!
A local luthier did it for 150 (I guess it's same in dollars). I think the price was bit high but the guy did fantastic job with it.
Warwick. The sound of......paint
I dont like solid color finishes, and wouldn't have done somehting like it to that bass if it was mine, but it looks much better than before.. and It looks great with the wenge of the neck IMO. I like that sort of combination..
if I had a Warwick it would be bright neon yellow.
i like lake placid blue. so much that my bass is lake placid blue... nice color choice!
I prefer the LPB. Nice refin job!
I like it
It looks awesome!
I would have easily paid that much for a high quality refin.
