    right on, bro...the status buzzards are the bomb...i think they were better suited to entwistle's style than the warwicks, but the warwick buzzards ARE cool
     
  9. I'm all about the buzzards!
     
  10. i actually like how the vampyre looks, it had a stupid name but i could care less. the best probably has a bomb ass tone. ash/maple/ebony/ with the 3-tone preamp and 26 bronze frets would probably make a very crazy variety of tones. i wonder how good the 34inch neck is thou i would prefer 35 inches but who knows the 34 is probably tight and responsive too.

    Don't be confused about the Warwick bridge:)

    "What guitar are you using?

    J.E.>Well, most of my basses have LEDs in the side of the neck, in case there's a blackout on stage, so I can keep going; but at the moment the lights are too close so it cancels the LEDs out so I can't see what I'm playing. I'm having to use one particular bass all the time, a Modulus graphite prototype, a bass that I designed, The Buzzard, with Warwick parts."

    Actually, the original Buzzard was with Warwick.

    John liked his action extremely low and detuned his strings, so he soon got interested in graphite necks, as they don't care for climate changes. At this point Modulus came in to produce graphite necks for Warwick bodies, and also manufactured dozen or so whole basses.

    Apparently soon after, the production was moved to English company Status Graphite, which produced the Buzzard he played until of late.

    The web page in your post says that the Warwick came first. As Tsal stated, the Modulus came later.
