Pro Series is German built at the Warwick factory, but finished offsite.

Hoping the wooden tuning peg heads are a standard affair though (well, standard on... customs. I guess).

After having had a good chat with one of the factory staff on my visit, I understand why they're doing what they are. The standard Warwicks weren't stockpiled- everything's made to order. Effectively, everything was custom shop in terms of work done (excepting your LEDs and inlay work).

EDIT: The sliding pickup has only been done on some of Guy Pratt's 'wicks, it's not a new thing for them. I don't see the option on the updates CS price list.

Life is good when every bass you play just makes you think "nice, but I like how mine sounds a lot more"

BUT HOW LONG CAN IT LAST

Same here, but mine is more in the feel department. I have never played a six string, or any other bass, with such low and effortless action as my Cirrus.

I like to think I have a pretty good ear though, otherwise I would be ****ing terrible at music, since it's not like I ever practise or anything

I think dialects might be a little more distant from their mother language than you imagine, especially if you're coming from Canada, Aus, US, etc where there are none. Even in the UK the most distant dialects are fairly tame in their language shifts. I wouldn't go about blaming your ear if you end up not being able to hear through one.

If you're encouraged to learn dialects though, its a huge amount of fun

^ I dunno about that, some of the more regional ones in the UK (like the scottish ones and irish/northern irish ones) have some words from foreign languages in them as well (like scottish or irish gaelic) and even things like scots (which is debatable if it's a dialect or a language, so quite a way away).

But I agree that dialects can be difficult to understand, even if you speak the original language fluently.

To be honest, there are even some traditional American English dialects that are hard to understand--just spend some time in the Ozarks or down in Louisiana.

They pale in comparison to the dialects in other languages. The only real dialect the US has is the Amish/menonite crazy German/English combo that goes on.

wow, no clue what's going on there. I hear a bit of sort of rural american english once in a while, and then german once in a while, but not really enough for my ear to pick it up. plus when it's such a mixture you kind of wonder if your ears are playing tricks- "did i understand that or just think i did?"

but yeah i was under the impression that most of the variation in english was accent more so than the language (except for the things like ulster scots etc. i mentioned) so I wouldn't be that surprised if there's more in other languages. most of the spread of english around the world was after modern english had more or less formed, which i'm guessing has something to do with it as well.

+1 to that. I've met some folks from the deep south and between the accent and the local slang i hadn't a clue what they were saying

^ Don't be silly, local accents and dialects are perfectly easy to hbkhwrtk3h4tihuv.

^^ I dunno about his northern irish one there. Sounded a bit too southern irish I think. Maybe sort of border area. EDIT: Obviously pretty good for someone who isn't from here, but yeah. He was best at the english ones, being english (or maybe my ear is more forgiving of them, being not english).

The dialect in Appalachia can really throw you if you are not used to hearing it. The people there also use it as a screening tool: if you don't speak it as they do; then they know you are an outsider.

Then, of course, there's this guy:



I have sometimes wondered how many little kids wound up with speech impediments after watching this guy on Sesame Street?

^You win the daily bass forum prize for that one.

Meanwhile, in my house, I just found a bottle absinthe I didn't know I had.

Yes, but did he donate?



I am not a fan of Absinthe, but I like this bottle.
