    Not my cup of tea-particularly how the pickups are set up. The Warrior website has tons of sound clips if anyone wants to hear them.

    There is a bass almost exactley like that in my local shop, without a Jazz pickup in the neck. I don't like it much- the B string is floppy. I don't think Warrior builds very solid necks, IME.
  6. I played a few Warriors a couple of weeks ago. My impression of the 5 strings wasn't so good. They were quality basses, good fit and finish, but the sound wasn't really that great IMO. The 7 string studio I played totally blew me away. All the strings were great and it had a great sound and feel to it. The price was certainly good too. The surprising thing was that the bulk of the neck was mahogany. I was somewhat skeptical at first, but the neck was certainly stiff. The action was also super low... just how I like it. It also had Lane Poor soapbars in it.

    Yes, Warriors are not known for being bad - just maybe these 5s suck; however their 6+ string basses have a good reputation
    (BTW I would really like to try a 9-string Warrior... :eek: :cool: :D )

    yeah, ive never heard a warrior played. the things that really stood out to me were
    the appearance. it looks very handsome.
    the basslines
    and the way the bolt on neck looks almost neck through
