    Yep, right across the aisle from the Dean girls :eek:

    I guess I didn't see too much of the Warwicks.

    After last year, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. The Katana and Chrome Streamer were horrible ideas, IMO.

    They were there. I didn't see anything new or 'show-stopping' though.

    Same with Pedulla. They had several nice basses; just nothing new. (Don't get me wrong. I think Pedulla makes good instruments.)
     
  6. Have you played the Katana? It sounds wonderful. And the Chrome Tones must be the ultimate metal basses, right :p ? I've played one of those too, and guess what? They sounded great! :hyper:

    The Chrome bass isnt really anything new! I believe Stuart Zender was the first to have one made (the Godzilla Bass) followed by some others - it just took Warwick a few years to realise that they could make some money out of it!

    +1! As ugly as I think they are, they sound DAMN good.
     
  13. I actually like the looks too! They remind me of Cadillacs, or a beautiful leaf or something.
     
  14. My god, what is that?
     
  15. I guess it's another way to honour Entwistle?

    Its interesting how those dual MM Corvettes have the pickups back to back. I wonder if that was there method to maintain the Musicman "sweet spot" logic while still allowing for 2 MM pickups. I'm curious to know the tonal differences between that type of 2 MM, a "Bongo" type of 2 MM and a single MM setup.
     
  17. I like those new twin humbucker corvettes. But i have serious GAS for a streamer jazzman.

    I think everyone missed the Warwick booth because it was right across from Dean, and oh, the Dean babes, mmmmm, they we're, um, distracting.......

    I walked past the Warwick booth and was nabbed (by my "media" badge) by Dale Titus who, according to his card, is regional sales manager for DanaBGoods.

    Anyway, my point is - what a nice guy. He was genuinely interested in the bass community and very supportive of talkbass and basstasters. A salesman sure, but definitely a cut above the norm.

    Any Warwick requests for basstasters in the near future?
