These are pretty cool. A lot of doom metal/ sludge guys play these. Coincidentally, the guy that builds them, Sasha Dunable, is in a pretty good band called Intronaut and their bass player is a lefty. Joe Lester; also plays in Secret Chiefs 3, or did when I saw them. Killer show...

Feels weird seeing an experienced fretless player play vertical vibratos on a fretless rather than following the length of the string.

Since we're all picking shit apart lately I'm gonna have a go: I'm so over these $2000 basses with the $50 garage finish jobs. When did skipping grain fill become a thing? It looks like a job I attempted in my garage that went sideways. Fill the grain people. All this is a cop out of a proper finish job in the name of some kind of back-to-basics hip thing. All that work building a nice instrument so the finish can start rubbing through or flaking off in a day?

I'm all about natural finishes and seeing the grain. Hell, I prefer natural finishes. But fill the damn grain and make the thing smooth to the touch. These basses along with Sereks are only halfway completed imo with a price tag of a finish instrument. End rant.

Normally, I'd agree, but this is Wenge, a naturally open wood grain... you just don't fill this wood in... Warwick uses it a lot in their bass bodies..

Warwick just uses it in necks I think. Can’t remember what the bodies are. But yeah, on Wenge, no fill needed. It’s freakin gorgeous.

Only the neck and fingerboard are, the body is mahogany :)

Warwick bodies are mostly bubinga, ovangkol (on many Thumb BO's), maple and ash.
