Nice work and another interesting and helpful comparison.
Both sound good. Wenge, for me, has a fuller, richer sound in the lows with the ovangkol having a little more punch?

Thank you! I have similar thoughts. My fav is wenge-neck, passive mode, steel strings (I used nickels in this vid).

Yeah I think it was listed for about half an hour before I pulled the trigger 😂. I'd say it sounds very different to a regular 5 string thumb from online videos however I haven't owned one myself. The p pickup gives a great p bass type tone (kind of obvious lol) but it has a very full and punchy sound with both pickups on (my preference). I think I still prefer my lakland tone however this one is piece of art!

What an interesting bit of figuring, never seen a dirty blonde quite like that, almost flamed in the middle and burl top/bottom.  Lovely.

 

Nice bass.  Had a 4 string model a while back, back pickup is brilliant.  Sounds nothing like a Thumb bass, which is preferable for some! :D

As said already, it sounds nothing like a thumb but has a unique but still Warwick like tone. I see like mine this one has had the nut upgraded to the brass version which gives more zing!

 

The other nice thing about these is that they are usually quite light.

 

if you decide to sell in future, give me a shout 😂😂

A friend from the Warwick forum just had this made (well it took 2 years).

I collaborated with him to get a working 8 string "buzzard beak" style headstock and came up with the banjo tuners idea for the octave strings to make it work.

 

What do you think? I think it is stunning and I am not even a fan of the Buzzard model...

Beautiful bass, but I'm fairly certain Status beat you to that 8-string "beak" design many years back.

Yeah but Hans has more lawyers and isn't afraid to use them! :S
