    uh.. a warmoth custom 5, maybe? ;) warmoth is a company that makes pretty decent parts for instruments, bodies, necks, whatever. many folks around here have put together very workable instruments buying the parts from warmoth.


    you might have more luck finding out about it if you try to get in touch with bass northwest directly.

    I agree with JT. I believe it is a warmoth custom 5.
     
  4. Warmoth parts are very high quality for the price IMO. The necks are VERY stable.

    Anyone played a whole Warmoth bass, as made by the company. Seems like it would be a decent bass, I love the way it looks.

    that's just it - warmoth only makes parts. i don't think you can buy a "warmoth made bass" - anything with warmoth in the name was constructed by someone, probably the person who bought the parts.

    I've seen this bass on BassNW for a long time & I considered buying a few times but the color turned me off. :( I think it started as high as $999 or $899 & has come donw to $699. BTW, $699 is an incredible price for this bass the parts alone probably cost over $1200.
