This week we got us a '96 Warwick Fortress Mastermann with a Fortress One neck and a nirvana black finish, called 'Beater'. I traded a Schecter Stiletto Elite 5 for it. it has one of the thinnest necks I've ever played (like SR thin, but FIRM) , belying my loved baseball bat neck with another great design!!!

let's get some specs in here-
BODY "ninja" flame maple, 2 piece, nirvana black
NECK 3 piece wenge with wenge board, truss rod, 2 steel support rods, and 2X2 angled headstock. 24 brass frets. no inlays. 4 screw bolt on.
ELECTRONICS

gold hardware

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Lets see....my ex got it on with my now ex drummer, and only told me because I asked her to get back with me, he even spoke to me on the phone with her in bed next to him, he lied to her, and used her just to get his rocks off.
I'm developing Carpal Tunnel in my fretting (left) hand, to the point where its going numb at work all the time, so Im having to operate a till and make tes and coffees one handed.
Still havent finished the Ep, and there's no chance of playing any gigs in the near to medium future...
I have no money and no xmas presents for anyone, ansd I feel awful for it

But, My vinyl collection has expanded considerably to include the first 4 primus albums (Suck on this-Pork Soda) A lovely twin picture disc copy of Lateralus, Loveless by MBV, Spiderland by Slint, lots of Butthole Surfers, some Babes in Toyland, the entire SSPU disography (inc Pikul, and Im seeing them again next week at London Uni, twice in one year without having to go to some shitty placebo arena tour) and tonnes of other stuff. So it's not all bad. Just mostly. Seeing Claypool in Amsterdam, and BRMC next year are keeping me going. Hows the lady friends and the lil nicky goin??
Sorry to be playing bum notes at you, feeling pretty shitty tbh

i just dont like gold personally xD.The only warwick i would prolly gas for is a Vampire but i wish it had a more evil looking headstock xD but even at that i would never ever get it since its way out my price range and my gas list is more or less my dream list xD.
