    Hi, I have searched this forum but cant seem to find exact date when Warwick stopped manufacture?

    I have just bought one today and I have to say I am greatly impressed. It was a bit of an impulse buy to be honest but I have no regrets - I planned to go try some different basses out and really did play loads in 3 or 4 stores but the fortress sound when they cranked up a mesa head and cab blew me away.

    Just wondering if I have paid too much for it as its now discontinued - I paid £949 UK and they threw in a stand and hard case.

    Also was interesting that in one store I played an fna but (and I am no expert) I reckon it was set up wrong as the action was really high, almost put me off warwicks!! When I played the fortress I couldnt believe the difference to my old kramer. I am very happy to tonight :))
