    I have read several of the post about Warrior basses and there seems to be very mixed reviews.
    As many of you know, I have been through about ever kind of bass under the sun. Some were incredible and some just ok.

    I just received a 5 string signature bolt-on from Warrior and I am completey blown away. Besides that fact that this is the most beautiful bass I have ever seen it sounds like no other bass I have ever heard. And I mean that in a good way :bassist:

    It has the most articulate voice of any bass I have had while simultaneously possessing an incredibly viscous growl. The slap sound is also among the best I have heard anywhere.

    If I knew how to post pics I would :confused:

    You can see my bass on the Warrior site. It is the Walnut top 5 string signature bolt-on with ash body and 5 piece neck made of zebra wood/wenge/purpleheart.

    For the first time in many years I appear to be gas free! :D
     
  2. Wanna link us to the pics of your bass in the Warrior site?

    Thanks Bassbengoa!
     
  7. Wow, thats an awsome bass. Looks like a good company :tup:.
     
  8. I gotta say, that bass is killer!

    How do you like the Barts? I've thinking of buying a set for a fretless.

    Man, I must say that I have not been altogether happy with bart stuff in the past but the J-barts and preamp in this bass is completely smokin. The preamp is also very sensative, a little tweaking goes a long way.

    In the second pic, what are the holes on the bottom of the bass for. I gather the first is a strap button but what are the other two for?
     
  12. Yeah, now they are a must ;)

    I wouldn't mind knowing myself. It looks intriguing.

    Those holes are for the B and E string. Warrior strings both the B and E through the body. It works quite well too because this bass is a 34" scale and B is outstanding.

    the B and E strings feed through the body

    Interesting approach as it would minimize the break angle compared to the traditional string-through body approach. Very cool.

    Great looking bass Rick!

    I've been to the factory once and was very impressed with one particular Warrior 5 I played there!

    Congratulations!

    Why? It's not like the extra length affects the tension in the string.

    I went to the website and couldn't find any prices. It is one of those "If you have to ask then you can't afford it" deals? Nice looking bass, though.

    Wow, what a stunner! I love it! Those Bart singlecoils are look brilliant (I love Barts). I'd love a Warrior of my own, probably a 6 string with some Barts in it.
