I dont know if I want to get a Warwick Bass (probably a Corvette Standard 5 or 6) or custom shop a Schecter or ESP.

The custom shop would be more personal, but i'm in love with Warwick and it's my dream to own one.

And custom shopped bass prices depend on the equipment in them, correct?

i saw a nice jazz bass in the fender custom shop once, i think it had an ash body, transparent ebony finish, binded rosewood neck. and some fancy bridge and hardwares thrown at it too.
it was sooo nice.
although right now not my cup of tea purely coz ive found out that slpit coils are really good... really really good

Warwick is a very good bass guitar brand, but their a little on the pricy side, but very worth it. custom shops are just plain too much money considering on how they overprice it by alot. TIP: if you get a shecter, make sure that its a neck-through (a.k.a the neck is apart of the body, not bolted), this increasus sustain and the holy S*** factor (and makes other people envios). but if i were you, i wouldnt get a costom shop. you end up having to pay 2X more for the guitar than it is realy worth. if it were me i would just get the Warwick. the pickup position is perfect and sounds awesome with a solid body.

Not all custom shops are a rip off. The Warwick Custom shop just adds charges on top of the bass's base cost (you essentially get a pimped out standard model).

My custom shop Corvette (custom part was an Ebony fretboard, not a lot I know) and the £100 Flight Case it came with for less than the base cost of the instrument on GAK. It is an absolutely fantastic instrument, and I feel that the ebony fingerboard has changed the tone to exactly what I want.

custom shop could be a good idea but only if you really know what you want

Well go to hell you damn European!



Another thing to ask yourself is if you would get anything out of the ordinary. If it just would be a great bass period, may as well get a Warwick. But if you want your name as an inlay and stuff like that, than Custom Shop is the way to go.

They can do almost anything you want, so long as it is based on one of their models. I've seen them do 8 string custom basses. IT is just that that they charge by the hour for custom custom shop options, so it gets pricy quickly. That said, I'm sure if you know exactly what they want, you will get a great bass at the end of it.

I have two 90's warwicks with Wenge necks, and they're great. I'd say that the custom shop is the best, then the 80's and 90's pre-factory warwicks, and then the new stuff.
