This look pretty cool:
they look alot like heinweckles (sp?)
Creating new products, outside of the tapping instrument market? Cool
Those are pretty expensive, though.
They look pretty nice. They do indeed bear a pretty strong resemblance to Hanewinckel basses. Pickup locations and neck joint are a bit different. They are also more expensive.
Hmm. . .wider string spacing as well.
They do look like Hanes... Maybe Pete's ghost building them for him..
I kind of think they look like Pedullas.
Maybe its just me.
Considering they were only selling about 12 tapping instruments a year, this is a good move for them. It's a three man operation, and I'm sure their business will benefit now they are making some more mainstream instruments.
Wow! I thought it was more than that.
Nope. Just 12, give or take one or two.
What else do they sell then?
(Selling 12 instruments a year can't support 3 people in California!)
They won't sell it to you unless you know the secret code word. Obviously you're not in "the know"
personally i rather own one of those tapping ones. ewwww they must rip. look pretty snazy too. any warr owners have any input on those, future but maybe
P.S. - your Warr 8-string is actually an "Artist", not an "Artisan".
I've never heard of Warr basses.
Or maybe you're just talking about WAL basses sold in Japan
A few years back I had an 8 string artist Warrguitar built, yeah it took about 9 months. I love it, it has such a clear tone, so much better feel than a stick, no comaprison. And best of all the strings go the right way. LOL
I was guessing they made less than 12 considering how long it takes.
Knowing the quality of my Warr, the basses would seem like a great idea. In order to tap, the action needs to be nice and low, so they have the neck thing down.
Oh yeah if you're gassing for a a real Warr 8 string there is someone here selling a sweet Zebrawood in the 4 sale area.
I wish I had the cash I would have done it. At last check he was selling it for $1800, which is a steal! Those basses are in the same range as a tapper, so his asking price is a little over half price of new one!
Oops! So it is! What was I thinking?
The guys at Warr aren't doing this full time by the way. Mark Warr is a contractor, Jim Wright is a teacher and gigging musician, and there's some other guy I don't know anything about.
Here's my Warr. It's for sale, by the way:
Fa Ra Ra Ra Raaaaaaaa... Ra Raaaa Raaa Raaaaaa!!
Only those who've seen the movie "A Christmas Story" will understand this...
I usually try not to make fun of people, but the other day a friend and I were eating some sushi and the chef said "Do you want more fried lice", and I really had to struggle to keep from laughing.
