a lucky find...

So i go to a music store my friend works in, and i find a warwick 4 string fretless neck-thru. I nearly shat myself and began to play...it was so awesome, the tone ,the sustain and the feel. So then i asked for the price, just for fun, assuming it would cost like $4000 canadian. The price was $1800!!!!! holy jesus! apparently it had been used, but there were no signs of damage, and it played perfectly. Furthermore it comes with a 2 year warranty. Ill keep you guys posted if i pick this beauty up.

yeah im so damn anxious i won't be able to sleep. only thing in my way of acquiring this beauty is my god damn parents. im about $600 short, but i can pay it off in installments and by then i should have money. but my parent question whether i need such a pricey instrument. My answer is "HELL YEAH" lol

The thumbs are worth it, tone city, and the fretless will have that beautiful growly 'Mwaaah' tone to it.

Stop rubbing it in Tattered!

Now that I think of it, I don't even think I've seen one Warwick for sale here..just a couple at gigs.

... I think we're more south-west of you. That sounds like a fucking sweet instrument though. Today I played a spector 5-string neck-thru in a store. I had to go home and change though, cuz it made me jizz in my pants.
