    Okay, I've got several questions here:

    1) I have a 5-string NJ Series Warlock Bass, and it's fine and everything, but I'm thinking about getting a new one soon (I've had the Warlock for quite a while), and I was wondering, are there any better, in your opinion(s) Warlocks that I should look at? Or are there better brands, do you think? I know very little about different basses...

    2) I was looking at Warwicks, and I was wondering if anyone has either the Vampire or the Katana, and how they play, how they feel, etc etc.

    3) Assuming there is not price range, what would be an ideal bass?

    I really dont like BC rich basses, and lots of people here dont tihnk highly of them either.

    Warwicks are good basses, definitely have a unique tone that you either love or hate.

    I'm not much for pointy, but if'n you're going to do it, do it right.

    Find a late 70s or early 80's BC Rich...one of the hand built ones that's more of a boutique than the ones made today.

    Yah, my Warlock is fine and everything, but I can certainly see why people wouldn't like them...but what is it exactly about the Warwick tone that people don't like? Do you know?

    I find them kind of buzzy and brassy and not very musical.

    Sort of the bass equivalent of a noisy fart.
