    I can't guess what it sounds like, but it looks like a POS!

  3. Thats not that bad. I wouldnt order it, but its deffinetly nothing near as ugly as some of the boutiques that people have on this forum haha.
     
  4. I like it. It is unique. And unique is good.

    It's trippy. I like it! However, whoever plays it had better be a sick tight bassist, because all eyes will be drawn to this instrument. We as humans are naturally drawn to contrasts. That's why infants love sheets with black and white polygons.

    you could have just said shapes, haha. It is indeed unique, but hurts my head to look at it.

    Like all fancy wood bases I respect the craftsmanship, it's just not me. You would think that for a custom shop product like tthat , they would at least bookmatch the control cover, pretty cheesy!! IMO

    But Warwicks use an easy-door control cavity cover with tabs, and I'm not sure how well one of those can be made with wood. Plus, how many people even see the control cavity anyway?
     
  9. I almost like it, but i'm not a fan of that warwick body shape
     
  10. you mean the spector body shape? :D :bag:

  14. I think he would send all the people that are taking LSD at a show insane.

    IMO it's cool, but it's kinda like a pretty nice piece of crap. It looks a lil' cheap, the regular Warwicks are nicer IMO

  17. I'm not so sure about it being the only one in the world. He claims that it's new, but I saw the exact same thing in a Warwick catalogue that's at least 6 years old. You think he actually bought the one in the catalogue?

    I was thinking the same thing. I have a catalogue that's about 4 years old and has that same style in it.
     
  19. I picked up a UK catalogue in January this year, and it is in there as a custom bass, so he could have the original, or a copy of it.
     
  20. There's been other custom shops in that style, they call it a "bois melange" top.

    Still, these are pretty rare birds and were never in regular production the way I understand it. I think they're pretty cool actually, certainly something for the guy that complains he doesn't get enough attention from the chicks at shows.
