What's with Warwick/Framus lately? I went to the NYC store the other day, and they're charging almost double for some basses now. Nothing new about these basses, really. As a Warwick fan, I still like them. But come on!! What gives? It's also driving the price of used Warwicks up some places. I played a used Corvette Standard in Sam Ash yesterday, and they wanted $1550 for it. Right. A used Corvette standard? $1000 sounds more like it. I don't care how good it sounds or how well it plays. Perhaps since new Warwicks are out of reach for 99% of players, the used market has heated up. Who knows. Rgeardless; who's going to pay $6000/$7000 for a factory-made bass (albeit a well made bass) when they can buy a Fodera or something? The only people I see playing 'high-end' Warwicks now are people with endorsement deals. I think I might let this Warwick 'bubble' burst and catch a deal on the downside.
