    I have a Warwick Vampyre LTD 4 string bass in a beautiful Honey Violin Hi Polish finish.

    It's great in all ways. very flexibel in sound and very easy to play. And it is a great balance bass. Yeah great in all ways like I said. + it looks real cool..

    I'm thinking about buying me a Warwick Buzzard LTD 4 str aswell but I'm not sure about the finish. Thinking about ordering it in Silverflake.. :bassist:

    I've had a couple Buzzards (bolt-on) and they just plain rock - only reason I sold the one in my sig recently is because I moved to a 5-string fretless from the 4. The Buzzard design has been around for decades and is pretty dang cool - the Vampyre isn't quite a classic, but I'll admit I think it's pretty cool. I vote Buzzard for the zebrawood body, especially in Natural. The sound is heavy-duty, but I'll admit I liked my fretless Buzzard way more than the fretted one.

    Oh yeah, and the big Buzzard wing means actual good balance on a strap!

    One thing you might want to consider; your tastes may eventually change and it might be harder to re-sell those basses because their body shapes are so "unique".. especially the Buzzard.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    The Buzzard is a very expensive axe, but the Vampyres are more affordably priced.

    In both instances, these two basses are pile-drivingly heavy in terms of weight........
