    Hi guys,
    I'm new here, thought I'd introduce myself. Currently junior in highschool, play EB, ibanez sr485 to be exact (dont scoff).
    Had a question that's been bugging me.
    Has anyone played/owned a warrior bass (5 string preferable)?
    (www.warriorinstruments.com)
    I've been considering getting myself one, but the price is pretty steep and i wanna see if anyone has any experience with these basses.
    Thx in advance for replies!

    Welcome!

    Though I havent played a Warrior 5 myself, I have not heard many good things about them. Warrior makes good 7 and 9-string basses, but their 5s are not always that good. There was a thread about this a while back. Do a search, and you'll see ;)

    Here is one thread that has 5s (and mre strings):

    Warrior Basses

    Note that post about 5s:
    "My friend has two 5's. The fretless is beautiful, plays and sounds great.

    The fretted blows, plays bad, fingerboard sits way above the body and the pickup is mismatched to the string spacing and the B is unusable. It should have never been sold.

    So that's two of them "
