    i was checking out the warr guitars website earlier and i read that they are capable of building, or are in the process of building a production run of conventional (i.e. horizontal, played with your fingers in the normal fashion :D) basses...i'm a wee type of guy, so obviously i would be interested in a bass with a small body...i play a warwick thumb now, but i'm trying to find a 6 string that would suit me...kinda hard...any of you guys seen or heard anything about these? mebbe some of you fellas that went to the NAMM show? thankies...

    the only warr stuff i'm familliar with are their touch-style, chapman-stick-inspired instruments, which i've heard good things about.

    I emailed Warr about their Warr basses and they said the basses are still in the developmental stage. I play 8 string stick and was looking for a 6 stringer. Chapman doesn't make them. Warr also needs to update their website.And lower their prices!!!!!!!

    If the Warr basses sound anything like my 8-string Warr, then they will be stunning. Amazing fundamental.

    Still trying to sell it...
