SINCE THE EARLY 1950S, SOLID-BODY
basses have dominated the groove-making
sector of the market.
IN 1990, MY DAD DECIDED I WAS
serious about this “bass thing,” so he took me
into the local music store in Rolla, Missouri,
and told me I had $800 to spend.
WITH ITS EVER-EXPANDING ROSTER OF
artist endorsees and swelling product lines
of basses and amplifiers, Warwick seems to
be capturing the zeitgeist of the bass world
especially well as of late.
