  2. More pics?

    Beautiful bass man.
    What is the difference sound wise on these between the BO and NT?

    This really is an absolute beauty. Warwick Custom Shop basses are unlike anything else I have played in my 20+ year career.

    I have posted more photos on the original listing for you.

    I personally find the BO has more of the traditional Warwick "growl", where the NT has a slightly less "growl" and from what I'm told more sustain. But I have found in my experience with many Warwick BO basses is there is plenty of sustain (mainly from the density of the woods that are used for the necks and bodies). And the growl comes from the wenge necks, that also keep really well in climate changes there strong like graphite.

    If you have any other questions please let me know.

    Any interest in a trade for an 07 German Corvette $$ 5 plus cash?

    German Corvette $$5 are a beautiful bass, but I already have one in the arsenal. Thank you for the offer.

    Musicman Stingray stealth black 5 hh? Perfect condition. My avatar is the bass. I currently play only my warwick but I have brand new and like new guitars (7 strings) and basses (5-6 string) in here that I've never had time to even use. Let me know what kind of trades you are open to. I really wish this was a 6 string but I want a thumb regardless.

    Looking forward to seeing some photos. I'm a sucker for a good EBMM Stingray.

    Photos are up on G-Drive. Let me know what you think. Still need to have a conversation with the misses. Bought 3 basses last semester that I haven't even touched so I don't want to cause more of a ruckus. :)
