Are they made from Warmoth parts? Just asking.
I'm pretty sure Warmoth gets all there parts from Sadowsky and Atelier Z.
No no no! Warmoth gets theirs from Yamaha, who gets theirs from Sadowsky, who gets theirs from Atelier Z, who gets theirs from Ibanez.
And you call yourselves professionals...
From what I understand, Warmoth makes the parts themselves, but then builders put the parts together, then disassemble them to re-sell them as rebranded Warmoth parts, under a special license from Warmoth.
If you uproot a Warmoth tree, you'll see a little turtle stamped on the root.
BTW, Woodchuck, I have a question for you. How much wood would you chuck if you could chuck wood?
If not being totally handmade is a turnoff, then I am really happy that you didn't waste big money on a Sadowsky. Seriously, I hope you find a completely handmade bass that completely rocks your world.
I don't own one (not that I wouldn't want one someday), but what about a Sadowsky is not hand built?
Is it the little gnomes he keeps in the basement wittling away that turns you off?
Or maybe it's all the CNC machines in Roger's living room, creating too much dust that puts you off them?
I don't know, and haven't heard of, too many bass builders sitting like Gepeto with a chisel, hand carving a neck out of a tree trunk.
Wishnevsky builds all his Wishbasses from the ground up. You can't get much more handmade/homemade than that.
The idea of "hand-made" could be taken to the extreme.
I mean someone even could find fault with someone not cutting the tree down themselves.
As far as I'm concerned, it's the end product that matters. Whether or not that product is worth what it's selling for is totally subjective...and if it's selling, it's obviously worth it to someone.
Everyone knows Warmoth parts are made from Nauga.
A lot of recliners too.
Silly Woodchuck, everyone knows that Warmoth parts are all made by the underpants gnomes. They finally figured out phase two of their business plan:
The Underpants Gnomes have a three-phase business plan, consisting of:
1. Collect underpants
#2 = build guitar and pass parts from the underpants.
NICE!!! Gnomes rule!
This handmade/machinemade controversy is a big deal with one Ed Roman. He goes on and on about how PRS guitars are CNC machined. Pretty funny reading.
I know it's a bad picture, but I was jumping to see over the wall to get a peek at the mystical Warmoth body tree!
OK, so I'm not a wizard at photoshop, but this is where all of the bodies come from. Seriously. I know it is hard to see, but under the tree are Roger Sadowsky, Mike Lull, Carey Nordstrand, Dan Lakin, and Nino!
Does Sadowsky use Warmoth parts?
I actually that Warmoth parts come from a stork who drops them in your fireplace, when it's not on fire that is. If it is on fire. Er, no parts for you
As far as the handmade vs. machine made debate, I've never known a machine to get falling down drunk on a Thurs night then come in the next morning to make a bass or guitar.
Warmoth is actually ran solely by a man named Emilio. He runs the entire operation himself, -outside of the Phone-Sales Department.
BTW Emilio started out as a child actor. He was featured in a late 60's/early 70's U.S. EPA-funded commercial shown eating lead-filled paint chips in a Projects building.
I was wondering that same thing. I think that pretty much all basses are made with Warmoth parts, including, but not limited to:
The problem with people like Ed is that they don't understand that routers, table saws and band saws are machines. By using these machines a bass is not "hand-made" and likely has exactly the same amount of hand work in it as a CNC built bass made by any high-end company.
"I guided the wood through the band saw."
"Yeah, but the computer did it more accurately."
