    i just brought a warwick fortress one bass, and i really really like it, can get it out of my hands.

    this is the only complaint i have.

    i have also a 77 jazz bass. wich i also like a lot!
    when i use the bidge pup only, and cut the tone to zero, the jazz gives me that funky sound rich of mids that i use a lot.

    the warwick has those mids and that growl too, but when i cut the treble in the warwick pre amp, those mods seem to go away with the treble......

    so, i wonder what is the frequency that the jazz bass cuts, and which is the one that the warwick cuts..... and also if i can do any mod to change that freq!

    is there a web site with this technicall info? or someone here can helpo me out?

    thancks in advance!

    Does your Fortress have an active or a passive preamp?
    If you have an active, the mods would be a bit difficult.
    It it's passive, you'd only need to change a capacitator.

    Try using your amp's eq.
    Try other strings - DR LoRiders work well with Warwicks IME
    Break your strings in: change them less frequently and use them more, this way you'll loose some ot the highs
