    Hello,

    Am I wrong ??
    I'm reinishing my new Warwick streamer LX and planning to redo the original Nirvana black satin finish. After the first new stain coat and sanding, I found the bass looks cool the way it is at this point. It looks like an old piece of barn board wood that has aged to that kind of grey. I think it would looks cool with a satin finish that all wenge neck, black pus and gold hardware...

  2. It's definitely different from anything I've ever seen. If you're into that kind of "looks crappy but great sound" then yea, go for it!

    Isn't that how Warwick made a name for themselves? :p

    Flip a coin, man. I think it'd look sweet either way.

    I'm sorry man I can't stop staring at that solid wenge neck. Looks cool how it is can you show a pick with the hardware sitting on it? I kind of wonder how it would look with a second layer of a blue or green stain..
