I believe he used a Stryker, and then a Buzzard.

he used 4 strings with all the pics I've seen.

but any warwick is great.

yesterday I saw a video of him using a 12 string Warwick

Most of the picture I've seen of him he had a P-bass, a Thunderbird or some funky looking Explorer bass.

No Warwicks.

EDIT: Wikipedia say he does, for what ever that mean...

No warwicks? I guess they're lying when they say the Buzzard and Stryker are his signature models, then.

he used Warwick for a time, but eventually settled for a company called Status, that Warwick has sued into not making their all graphite Buzzard any more.

And according to "Bass Culture" he also owned a Streamer, a thumb bass, and an early 5 string prototype.

I'm sure he tried every model Warwick that was available. That shouldn't really influence your choice of bass that much. They're good instruments, not for everybody though.

People, stop, stop, stop. Warwick was the first company to make a Buzzard. Legend goes that he drew the idea on a napkin at a bar with Hans Peter Wilfer. He HAD to use Warwicks at one point simply because they were the only company to make the Buzzard at one point. The necks were sourced from Status, which ended up making the whole bass. I believe he uses a Warwick Buzzard on the Tommy + Quadrophenia DVD - the Tommy show in '89.

The Stryker, from what I understand, was a posthumous tribute bass. I don't think he ACTUALLY used a Stryker from Warwick at any point. Those basses used to use normal Warick headstocks - now they have Buzzard headstocks. A little sign that it's more of an imaginary Entwistle bass as opposed to something he used.

Now, he's only ever used 4-strings (and their dual-course equivalent) onstage. IF the guy's claiming that it was Entwistle's 5-string, he better have some provinence. Even if he does, there's a great chance that the bass just stayed in a case in his bass room for years.

So, in conclusion, Entwistle played Warwick Buzzards with four strings. Strykers and Buzzard BO's are posthumous releases.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Ok--the operative word here is played. Versus "owned". He "owned" a shiteload of basses and guitars, some of which were Warwicks.

How many he actually "played" is another story. According to the book, he did "own" a 5 string warwick proto-type. Which probably gathered much dust in a vault.
#16
Very true. In his documentary, he'd mention about how he'd go through his (200+) bass collection, and run into a bass he's never seen before. 'Where'd I get that one?'

The point is, to own a bass that belonged to Mr Entwhistle would 1) Be really cool and 2) BE REALLY COOL

no-one seems to be grasping that point, so I felt I had to make it....

I wish I had 200 basses, I have but 4

once again....REALLY COOL

I think fitz is the only guy who would actually use all 200 basses.

I'd end up with half of them on my wall. decorations.

Take some pics while your there and post them so that we can get an idea of your options. It is kind of hard to weigh in on the issue when we have no idea of the exact basses that are available to you.
