I live in a town of 1500 in Western Colorado, about 300 miles from really good music shops in Denver or Salt Lake City. Last week I noticed a piece of butcher paper in the window of a vacant store front that said, "Starr Guitars. Opening Soon." I thought, "yeah probably 4 guitars". Yesterday it opened and I was blown away. Martin, Taylor, Santa Cruz, Fender and Schecter guitars, and more to the point Warwick, Spector, U.S. Masters and Rick Turner basses. Turns out that Dave Starr, who had been in business for several years in Little Rock, Arkansas, recently moved to Cedaredge and sells mostly on the web. I even remember visiting his website several times. I hope he is able to make a go of it because there is nothing like his shop within 5 hours driving time. I liked the Warwick V the best until I tried a Rick Turner Renaissance 5 String with a piezo bridge as well as the standard neck and bridge pickup. Now, it is a hard choice between the two. I was playing through a Genz Benz 200 watt amp with a single 12 and a horn. Has anybody had any experience or have any comments on these basses?
