    Hi!

    I don't know for sure but I think alot has to do with the number of basses they produce annually. I'm sure they produce a ton more pieces than Sadowsky, Roscoe, Zon, etc.

    Maybe it's because of the thumb soundclip I posted a few weeks ago ;)

    Hey! everybody has a jazz bass and they seem to be keeping together?

    I still think the thumb looks like a fatty bass

    You are wondering why? the answer is:

    BECAUSE I JUST BOUGHT A WARWICK CORVETTE AFTER LOOKING FOR A USED THUMB FOR LONG!


    well, okay, there werent any LH and the shipping and taxes would be high...

    A bit more seriously: it went very popular, so to say mainstream, so those people who still wanted to be unique, put up with their neckdive no longer and sold it.
