    a warwick in bubinga always costs quite a bit more than one in ash, i was wondering if thats just becase bubinga is generally more expensive wood, or is their an improvement in sound or something?

    i wouldn;t neccessarily say an "improvement" in sound, just different. Bubinga is a tropical wood which is harder to get a hold of. But to me, it produces that signature warwick sound. Along with wenge necks.

    Bubinga is more expensive wood. I also like the tone that it give you.
     
  4. bubinga is great. i think it's worth the extra dough. i love the look, and it sounds nice and punchy, too. really dense wood.
