    warwicks are great studio basses. the engineer on the last cd i did told me "hey man, you know the bass on the cd is FLAT" about every time i saw him. he was in awe.


    and they're great fretlesses too. i couldn't be happier with my fretless thumb 6.
     
  4. Try not to pay more than $800 for it, but it's still a great deal. I'm sweet on pmkelly's fretless 'Vette 4, although Matt Schmill is tempting me with a couple of FBBs.

    Warwicks as studio basses? very good, although I'd say the FNA's are better than the standards

    a friend of mine is a Warwick endorser (Chris Clemente, from Chicago...amazing bassist) and he uses a Warwick FNA Jazz 5 on his studio gigs

    I've played one with an ash body.. very good playability, despite the chunky neck. sound was good too. if you get it cheap, go for it!
