I'm planning to order a warmoth walnut body. I wanna know how a walnut bass will sound like.
Deep, dark tone.
Pretty much. Check this out.
I have a walnut Precision Special bass that sounds sort of bright, not dark for sure. I put a maple neck on it and that is a great combo. Much better ballance tonewise than the walnut neck and I can get that nice "Takin' it to the Streets" Doobie Brothers tone. I think the neck is where you want to focus most of your attention on overall tone. Walnut will make a nice body but will probably be a little heavy. I will attach a pic of mine. My bass tips the scales at just over 9 pounds.
You got the deep right. It's dark looking, but not sounding.
Walnut is clear open full and even sounding.
I've got a 4 string warmoth eagle bass and it is bright and the weight is heavy. It even has a good chunk of wood routed out for the tremolo and its still heavy.
I don't think I'd ever go with a solid walnut body again unless I was able to play it before buying.
I do like the bright tone and the neck it has the stainless steel frets as opposed to the nickel/silver. This may add to its 'brightness' I'm not sure.
