    Nobody eh?....I guess I'll be one of the select few to own one of these amazing basses! I used to own a RBV and hated the way it felt, but absolutely LOVED the coil tapping abillity, so when the double buck was released, it married the best of both worlds for me! THANK YOU GREAT CREATOR !!!!
  3. Hey man, i've been playing a double buck 4 for about 3 months now! its awesome! i love it!





    you'll love it bro! have fun

  7. They're really, really powerful basses, the best in Warwick's line IMO.

    As a Warwick fan, I'm ashamed to say this is the first I've heard of this bass. Is it like Warwick's version of a StingRay?
  11. No, it's simply a Corvette with more pickup options.

    I've really been wanting to get my hands on one. I can imagine it having a thunderous sound.

    The only thing I am cautious about, without even having played one, is the lack of space between the humbuckers. I like to play "between" the pickups usually and it doesn't look like much room.
  13. see its ideal for me as i always play OVER the pickups, its just awesome for what i do, the bridge pickup sounds super tight and tidy, and the neck pickup is just great for deep tones, its just everything i want. My only quibble is its not a 6 string! :D but maybe one day eh!

    watch out for slap. u gotta get that hand control up. lol.

    otherwise, im fine going over pups. its like a built in pup ramp.
  15. I was so pumped about the double Bucks, until I played one and realized I just can't handle two MM pickups(same with the stingray double H's).

    I have fallen in love with their less wild cousin, the Jazzman though.

    Man.. I completely forgot about these basses! I remember trying one out and really falling in love with it. Fortunately, I had just bought another bass so my GAS was satiated. Those things play so well...

    I agree! The J-p/up is good for taking some of the bite out of the tone and rounding it into a solid growl. Rolling the tone all the way to MM p/up gives a good sharp bite, but I like it about 2/3 MM, 1/3 J.

    ....and DR Low Riders are tha **** on these basses.
