Made in Germany, 97 years, this bass has a great look.
P-jazz configuration, eq. MEC 2-band (which I changed to a Glockenklang 3-band), MEC active pickups. The settings are flying. ball. severe acute for the MEC, and theft, ball, stacked bass / treble, midrange for Glockenklang. The MEC was great, but it lacks media ...
Bolt Wenge, 24 frets, no marks on the button but on the side of the handle. A little thick, but very comfortable, it's the personality of the low nervous, offering his most slamming, lots of harmonics. The body is also something ...

UTILIZATION

So nice handle, good ergonomics, the body is sculpted, hard to describe, this reference to the touch!
The weight is therefore, I think, but it is very correct.
Access to the extreme treble is not very easy, although I play my bass high.
The sound is just fantastic, with the config as the new home.
It's powerful, nervous response in extraordinary slap, it must try to understand it. The electronics and pickups are very transparent, you can feel the wood grain to each note, no matter the equalizer.
The lack of heat due to mixing of wenge and maple (a very raw, so happiness slap!), Can be corrected with a 3-band preamp. I tried several, and I recommend either MEC or Glockenklang order not to distort the sound of that bass!

SOUNDS

Base, so, given the choice of wood, this bass is very typical.
The bass is massive, crystalline treble MEC 2-band version.
With the Glock, it was more of the following heat and presence to the chorus.
You can play everything with this bass. Personally, I play jazz, and I think it brings a very interesting grain, both in rhythm and solo.
I guess for rock, metal and other energetic music, hey ben it must be monstrous?
Otherwise, I typed a little reggae with rastaman, no worries, by inflating the bass, they took the big climbs as they say!
I also took some rehearsals with my jazz-funk, it's huge!
There's a way to have a p-bass supercharged!
It is clear, it can be heavy burr-free, but also fine, delicate ... A palette of sound ill (with 3-band ..)
Accuracy, I play on a Markbass LMII and a NY cab 121.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been over a year I use it, and I'm delighted!
She stands up to my stage II (well, at least sustain the same, and then not have the same wood, not the same sounds, not very comparable in fact, but it's low in two very different character!)
I tried the thumb, corvettes, fortress, LTD of, well, the stream is still my favorite model in warwick, warwick and my favorite brand (after a period of worship longuue fool for fender. It over!)
What I like most is its unique grain, his nervousness, his versatile caractètre after upgrade.
It is a low to buy OCCAZ, warwick haircut soon. I would definitely do it again this purchase, the price / quality ratio is unbeatable (in OCCAZ).
I strongly recommend to install a PR2AMP 3 BANDS, transparent to boot.
