I went to GC in Covina, Ca. and bought me some new strings, Markley Blue Steels. I was kinda worried about changing the strings for the first time, but it was pretty damn easy. I did a pretty damn good job if I do say so myself. They give it a really bright punch and tone that's kinda new to me (miss my old strings charm) but I love them none the less. Sorry for getting off track guys...must be my advanced age Anyways yes the Warwicks. I was checking out a Corvette 5 string Warwick in the catalog, and it listed it as $1700. The sale price was "Too Low to List". Then I saw a smaller 4 string Warwick and played it for awhile. I like the sound it gave me, but the body felt a bit odd shaped and heavy for being so small. Must be the bubinga wood. The sale price for that puppy was over $800. Maybe I missed something somewhere, but I wouldn't wanna shell out THAT much for a bass at this time. Maybe I'm a tad cheap too. Any thoughts?
