Re: Visiting Warwick and Sandberg Factories - Questions?

Don't want to take my Warwick $$ body across and bring it back with the piezo bridge conversion do you? Been toying with that idea for a little while since I heard one live a few years back. Worked out the electronics, can buy all the bits but there is something about cutting into the unique instru...

Re: Visiting Warwick and Sandberg Factories - Questions?

I have a question. I'm curious abut the design process for the Sandberg California VM series. Having decided to make it a P/MM pickup configuration, I would have thought they would position the MM pickup in the Stingray sweet spot. Instead they put it closer to the bridge akin to a Jazz bass pickup...

Visiting Warwick and Sandberg Factories - Questions?

Hi all, I'm about to fly out to Germany (well, Wednesday) to attend my mum's 80th and of course I can't go without checking out the two most well-known manufacturers in Germany, Warwick and Sandberg. Warwick is a 90 minutes guided tour with the opportunity to check out the showroom afterwards. Sandb...

Are you spraying this yourself, Pete?

The ziricote looks absolutely amazing like this! Love it. Enjoy the gals-making (I know I wouldn't ;) ).

Re: Boss MS-3 (Multifx / Switcher) for guitar and bass.

Had mine for 5, 6 weeks now. Have not spent a lot of time with it but what I've achieved so far I like. Mostly use modulation effects (not a drive person), love the Harmonist set to a zero shift (results in a chorus-like effect with some slap-back delay, great for fretless). Still sorting out levels...

From those cross section pictures on the Warwick site it looks like they do have some kind of material on each side of the truss rod.

I'll find out for you in a couple of weeks :D .

Re: Making a Warwick neck less square shaped

I wish I didn’t love the tone of wenge so much (not wanting to go into a tone wood debate at all, by the way haha). I think your biggest saving grace is that you’ve put in the stiffening rods on your necks. I wish Warwick did the same. I’ve contemplated lifting off the fingerboard and installing so...

SOLD (PP) Joyo JMP-01 Portable Power Supply

Bought this a couple of years ago (original price sticker still on box) to avoid power leads and supplies on stage. Have used it maybe a dozen times, and it's now obsolete, and doesn't really want to play with the MS-3 either. Comes with all cables etc. Location: Melbourne's leafy north. Price: $80 ...
