    if this is in the wrong place, move it on over....

    so i saw a bass body made of canary on the warmoth site; never heard of this before, looks nice, and was wondering if anybody had any input on its tonal characteristics? thanks.

    Talk to DarkMazda.

    I turned him onto a Salas made of canarywood. He bought it and he loves it.

    Pretty light, I would say. Probably a featherweight. A little on the chirpy side, but keep it out of the coal mines and you'll be fine.

    Sorry, Mazda - I thought that was you.

    I get many emails and PM's about gear and I guess it was someone else who nailed it from .

    Must be hardening of the arteries or Alzheimers....I remembered we exchanged messages some time ago about nice basses.
