Looks good.

As Jon (Spaz91) commented on earlier, will there be a Warmoth style "custom bass" builder, allowing someone to put in the "standard" custom options (found on the pricelist) to get a price, and maybe a visualisation of the finished product as a guide?

Plus, will purpleheart be added as a standard wood option for the neck, as Dick Lovgren's Dolphin looks AWESOME with the purpleheart neckthrough.

Db - I will try to get as many specifics as possible and come back to you. Thanks for all the great questions! Keep them coming!

This is probably more a question for Robert Trujillo... but why so many Streamers in weird ass finishes?

Db - Thats definitely a question for Robert! He's taken quite a fancy to his Warwick's and now has quite the collection. As we say at Warwick: "If you can dream it, we can build it!" : )

Besides the pickups and finishes, are there any differences between the Streamer the and the Rob Trujillo sig? Or the Corvette and FNA Jazzman? Just wondering why they get their own categories in the gallery.

The Trujillo sig has a different neck profile and nickel frets as standard, AFAIK

Most of the signature models have their own designation in the product line-up. Rob prefers a different bridge, and also the nickel frets as Db stated. In the Gallery - The FNA Jazzman is no longer offered as a standard model, and with its different pickup configuration it was unique from the standard Corvette. The Gallery has been getting more focus lately, and will become more accurate as we continue to focus our efforts there. Hope that helps! Let me know if you've got any other questions. Thanks!

Would you be able to put up the prices of how much the custom instruments cost? Or is that private? I hope to be a customer of the custom shop some day and I need to know when to start saving up. The price sheet is too big and baffling for me.

Spaz91 - I can certainly mention it to the web team. Of course, the best way to really know what range you'll be in, is to talk with a dealer about spec'ing something out. They can give you the best idea of what options are possible and their costs. You can always contact the NY Custom Shop as well! Thanks!

Here's a shot Robert just sent us from the Metallica tour in Mexico, playing his new Signature model, with a bronzed El Dorado motif:

Hey Warwick.
Just say for instance, I was taken over by aliens or had a brain haemorrage or somesuch, and I wanted to spunk a load of my bank account over a Star Bass, could I have it with a Framus badge on? No 'W' marks of any sort?
No offence meant, but I started playing bass in the 80's when cretins in shiny suits wore Warwicks on 3" long straps, above the nipple datum. No amount of Rob T or anyother of the cool kids can ever erase that nightmare.
And I wouldn't want that particular nightmare visited on what would undoubtedly be a very fine and expensive bass.



Maybe I'll just stick to my trusty old Fender...

Well, we do have the Framus Star Bass 5/150, which is a faithful reproduction of our original model.

The Warwick Star Bass II could have some customizations, with an order from the Custom Shop. If you'd like to submit some requests I would be more than happy to assist you. Thanks!

Cheers, but it was just hypothetical.

Hey I'm having a slight problem with my Corvette, the 2 band eq board started to smoke and melt the epoxy that covered the board. Have you heard of an eq board just failing like that? I have a couple of options as to how to fix it but I wanted to ask an expert first.

joey-only, This is the first time I have ever heard something like that - Can you tell me the year of your bass, and serial number? It sounds like a component has failed/fried or there was a short.

I am the sole individual responsible for participating in the main English-language forums - I have a colleague in Germany who covers the German-language forums, and together we make up the bulk of the social media team. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist you in any way. Thanks!

not sure of the year but the serial number is H 902944-09, the two options I was considering were to replace the eq or to put in two EMG HZ 40s, remove the eq and only use the volume and blend knobs.

joey-only, the database doesn't recognize that serial number, though it should be a 2009 model. Can you double-check that for me? Thanks!
