  1. Have a read of my old thread here in regards to a Warwick Infinity that I got that turned up with a severely twisted neck. It ended up being fixed and came back flat as a pancake. John Williams of Noiseworks was the guy who fixed it. not sure whether he is still going https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/243973-want-to-see-what-an-ebay-seller-regarded-as-a-small-neck-twist/
  2. ๐Ÿ˜‚ To be fair that's a good comparison as the Coupe de Ville is pretty much like the Rick of the car World; tacky and awful. But hey, again, each to their own! If you like them then more power to you
  3. haha sorry. Each to their own and that but I think they are just amazingly awful.
  4. I didn't think it was possible to make the ugliest of basses even uglier but that has somehow managed it.
  5. Want!! Just a shame that my Old Smoothie hasn't gone yet or i'd be all over this in a shot
  6. Funnily enough, I know someone who had a 5 string in the finish and it had flaked off everywhere!
  7. Hey! I switched to the nickels a while back and much prefer them. find them a lot less aggressive and I would say the nickels have the warmer tone with my basses. My two main basses are Warwicks though so they are naturally quite aggressive sounding.
  8. If you wanna sell the other one then let me know.. haha. I have actually a MTD Nebulous custom order on the way which should be arriving any day now so can't wait to play it! GLWTS
  9. Sod the house.. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Basses are infinitely more important
  10. Do people seriously go to a bass guitar show and get annoyed about the sound of other people playing bass guitars? ๐Ÿ˜‚
  11. Sorry just seen you meant pickup covers. For some reason I read it as pick guard / scratch plate!
  12. Oh really? That would be very surprising as the other two color variations of this bass both have white pickup covers (butterscotch and choc burst)
