Inspired by this thread: Beware, car metaphors abound. I'm not sure why. I've been playing bass for a while now but I've never been a real gear-head until recently (many of you will be glad to know that since joining this forum my GAS has increased exponentially.) For a long time I considered Warwick to the absolute Top-of-the-heap (the Cadillac of basses), mainly because they were the nicest basses I'd had any experience with. Truth is, I'd never heard of Zon, F bass, Jerzy Drodz, Ritter, et. al. before coming here. Soon after I revised my opinion into thinking Warwick must be more of a Volvo. Still a great bass but not a Bentley... er Alembic. Anyway I'm just wondering what the community's opinion at large is of Warwick and it's place in the grand pecking order. Now I know that everybody's opinions are personal and they're all like belly buttons and other various orifices but I still am curious. I'm sure we'll have some people that would only ever play Warwick and some that would only release their Modulus when pried from their cold dead hand. Anyway, I'm just curious as to what people think. Discuss. Edit: For my part, I still really like Warwick and a Thumb or a Dolphin will probably be my next bass upgrade.
