    I like the neck pup idea and the walnut body; nice purple heart sandwich. Are you getting one?

    I think it's expensive.

    Prolly a safe guess.
  5. I think it looks pretty drab personally, but I do like the pickup placement. I was positive that at some point when Warwick was going to build a P-Nut Sig that it was going to have a solid Purpleheart body, or at the very least, a Purpleheart top. I think having the Purpleheart center is pretty weak, but that's just me.

    That bass is awesome, and I love P-Nut, but wouldn't his real signature bass be a SS2 with Bassline jazz pickups? I wonder if he will use the stock pickups, if he indeed uses that bass for a while.

    I like the look of it, but since I find it difficult to play Warwicks in general, I doubt I'll put in much time with one. P-Nut's got great tone though, so this thing could sound killer.
  8. Seems nice but I prefer the one he always plays... I wouldn't buy it...

    That's very sweet, but it's gotta be some serious $$$$$$$$
  10. I just got a stage II 5 with basslines pickups and preamp. Since P-nut has been using this as his "go to" bass for so many years, I consider it to be his "signiture" bass.

    Soo sexy.

    P-Nut had the choice of the PU and electronics on this bass, but I still agree with that the SSII with the SD's is more his signature than this.
  12. Actually, the Stage II with Basslines isn't his "go-to" anymore. His main bass is a Standard Stage II 5 string with MECs, and I didn't even see him bring out the Stage II with Basslines to tell you the truth last week when I saw them play (they were very good by the way).

    I'm seeing them general admission in 3 weeks. I'll see what he's playing. I'm fighting to get against the rail. :hyper:
  14. I can't help but notice the image pun that this bass delivers: he is the one and only P-Nut, and his bass looks like a gorgeous purpleheart-esque PB&J sandwich!

    :rolleyes: :D

    Other than that.... solid-looking bass, that!

    I like it too. Walnut + Purpleheart core sounds like a yummy tone monster; the Jazzman configuration and 3-band probably help too. I dig the whole understated look.

    cool pickup placement. I would of figured though that P-NUT would want an all purpleheart bass or an all really dark walnut bass since he tends to go towards the darker woods. Cool lookin though. It is about time he got a sig bass!! Very overrated IMHO! :bassist:
  19. That was pretty much my beef when I had learned of the P-Nut sig as well. I thought for sure that the body was going to be of Purpleheart as he's been wanting to have a bass made of solid Purpleheart.
