I was lookin through the buzzards in the CS gallary and i noticed there's a size difference in the bodies between the BO and NT versions.
does anyone know why this is?

BO's always have had bigger bodies - its actually the same with Vampyre's and Thumb's

why?

i dont know... it must have something to do with neck tenon, or the fact that NT's are much more contoured and smexier in general

It's not necessarily a difference in size, but more on shape. BO basses need a neck pockett... for the bolts :) And they need to fit the std 24 frets Warwick necks.
A NT thumb has 26 frets, so the body should be a little bit longer for a 24 frets neck like the Bo.

Same with the Buzzard: 24 frets for the BO against 26 for the NT.

I think it's because I looked at pics of Entwistle too much, but I always thought the looks of the BO as being not quite right. Same with the headstock. The NT just looks better balanced, slimmer, faster, better.

But of course the BO still is very pretty and a dream to play and have.
