Short version, I have my eye on a German made Warwick Standard STD for $900. It has some scratches and dings which I do t care about if it’s bringing the price down. Doing my own search I can only find German made Warwicks for around $2,000. So it seems great to me. I am not sure what the “standard” means, the Warwick website only list the “LX” and the “Stage” so am wondering is this is discontinued. I’d this is a jump on it kind of deal or a wait and keep your eye out stuff like this pops up all the time let me know. Here’s some pics Long version - I am coming back to playing music after 18 years after the second band I was in fell apart (1st was drug related death, 2nd more complicated). With no one else to play with I drifted away. Now I have a pull to play again just for myself. Years and years ago I played a Warwick but couldn’t afford it and said someday - and now I can but I can’t find one on the shelves of any music store to play and see what I like! I called the distributor and they said it’s a 7 hour drive to a place that has German Warwicks in stock. So I figure buying a used one is less risk. Who knows I may end up with a Stingray - but real music stores are going away and the only basses I can find are the budget line of the actual bass. Everyone says play them both and see what you like but I am finding that difficult to actually do. Thanks anyone for input.
