    I am in serious trouble!

    I have about 3500 $ left. And I want a new bass.
    And I have to decide between a
    - Warwick Infinity

    and a
    - Le Fay Midas (anybody know Le Fay?) -> German Page

    I never played the Midas. This basses are made by one single person in the north of Germany and known as absolute state of the art. I read an article of it with the resumee: "Halleluja, a dream of a bass. Endless sustain, great tone, fantastic finish and work ..."

    I phoned the chief (and only employee :) ) and he will send me one for testing! That's nice.

    But on the other hand, there is this fabulous Warwick.
    One of the most beautiful instruments I've ever seen.
    Perfect sound, playability, and arg... everything.

    Thus...2 great Instruments and I HAVE to decide. This is a really hard choice, so could you help me with a few statements about the basses?

    Most of all: Has anyone ever heard or played a Le Fay?

    Man, that Le Fay is one jive-ass looking bass. I couldn't get the web site to come up, though...but if he's willing to send you one, check it out! ANYone can get a Warwick, but that Le Fay just looks very very cool.

    Thanks Nate...can't read a word of German, but the pictures looked nice, and pictures of beer, to boot! Basses and beer :)

    I guess you have to do the same thing that even some poor beginner looking for a Squier would have to do: get one of each and play them until one feel right to you.

    Yeah, that Le Fay sure looks good. But I would have them round the end of the body off. Don't care for those two horns with the strap studs on them, sticking out like that.

    $3,500....Hmmmmm :daydreams:

    By any means get the Le Fay!!!!

    They're the coolest basses I've played yet (Pangton 6) - and it's like a little custom shop - I would refrain from such radical modifications, though...why spoil a great design? On top of it all - Rainer really is a very nice fellow....

    If you'd like me to translate the webpage for you (I'm German) - just drop me a mail...
