Today I went into my local guitar dealer, and I talked to the owner about getting a good new bass, and what I asked for was a Warwick, but they said they had none, but they did have a *Warrior* bass. So I asked to see it and they brought me to the owner of the store. I talked to him for a good while, and had dealt personally with him before, and he's a great guy, though a bit kniving, and he showed me HIS personal bass, a sexy Warrior. A few of its specifications are a neck made of Koa and Purpleheart, with a pao ferra fretboard, I dont remember the body wood, but it has custom Bartolini pick-ups and its 34 inch scale on the A, D, and G strings, and the B and E strings are pulled through to the bottom of the body for a 37 inch scale on those two. The neck plays like butter, and i think i've never played a better bass. Ever. Now he was willing to sell it to me for $2500 (before haggling), though he said he got it for $3900. The reason he says he's selling it is because it's too heavy and he found they made a lighter version, which he has on order. Honestly, I figure it is good enough for him to be playing on, I can't imagine that there would be any major problems with it. If anyone has any feedback or ideas or think i can get it cheaper, let me know.
