The current Hagstrom offering is sub 400, and I've never had my hands on a good one.

The Hagstrom Ultra Swede is a good guitar, but I haven't found any other Hagstroms about which I can say that - basses included. The first Hagstrom I ever played was back in '78, and the body was covered in Naugahyde. No, I'm not kidding. Naugahyde!

I think I'm going to go for that Warwick Katana 4-string. Hey, Warwick Official: what kinds of hard cases can I get for that bass? Or should I just go for a generic plastic road case? I don't want to put an expensive and uniquely-shaped bass in a "one size fits all" case if I can avoid it.

I am wondering is it worth it for this bass/year? I am pretty certain I want a warwick as i fell in love with them back in around 2002 or so when my favorite player at the time played one (Sam Rivers)


Hello davo339. It sounds like a fair price, to me...but also not my position to make such a judgement. Is it possible for you to test the bass out in person? Really, it comes down to whether you connect with the instrument...and it allows you to speak your voice as a musician. We are quite proud to have Sam Rivers as an endorser - on a side note, check out our FB page, where we are currently giving away a mini-thumb bass signed by Sam Rivers! facebook.com/warwickframus Please let me know if there is any way I can assist you. Thanks!

Glad to hear it FatalGear41! I've submitted a request to our distributor to see what might be available for needs. I'll reply as soon as I hear back. Thanks for your patience!

Speaking as a model-maker(and total novice bass player), wound strings look great as dirty great cables in sci-fi themed vehicles and dioramas.

Probably no use to you, but it's one alternative use for 'em.

I will be going to check it out in person tomorrow, I will more than likely fall in love with it. I was just curious as to $1500 was a fair price for the model/age which you had answered. Thank you! I have also entered the contest for the mini Thumb! It looks pretty cool haha.

I'd freaking love a program on the website that calculate the costs of custom shop models on the spot, a little like Warmoth's site.

Bollocks, My beluga IIF bass retails at 599gbp..... Admittedly Hags are an acquired taste, but the build quality is excellent.

The HB-8, which I am specifically referring to, is at 390, and it is not good as an 8 string.

Spaz91:We prefer you to buy from a local dealer when possible. But for those who don't have access to a dealer in their area, they can purchase through the Warwick Online Store at retail price. Thanks for your interest!

Have you ever wondered about the process behind building Warwick basses and Framus guitars? Here's a link to our Factory Tour information page, with a quick video about the tour! Enjoy, and hopefully we'll see YOU on a factory tour sometime soon! http://www.warwick.de/modules/infos/...ID=24107&cl=EN Thanks!

If I were to coincide a factory visit with ordering my next CS, would I be able to choose the wood cuts?
