    I was never a Warwick kinda guy but ever since I picked up and played one at GC, I kinda dig 'em! That's a beauty.

    thanks mate, it was worth it:bassist:

    guys, the euro has dropped quite a lot this past week so this is a good time for you;)
     
  8. I have always loved that Sappy Bubinga top Warwick uses once in awhile.

    nobody seems interested?
    it's a good mixture of thumb and jazz-like bass plus the price is very fair i think:)

    I woulda been all over this one if I had not just bought another bass a week before you posted! Like I said, I picked up a Corvette 5 string at GC a few weeks ago and it was pretty nice! Neck was a little different than what I'm used to but I would have gotten used to it!


    Come on somebody..........buy this bass!!
     
  11. How much in € in Europe?
