    It might be a "ding" in the headstock... some of the vintage ones had been played... I was only able to get the photos of the ones in the glass cabinet on the left side (time constraints, and did not want to over-stay our welcome... I'll write more about this later)

    The lighting in the showroom is not great for photography (very dramatic / spotlights), so the photos will likely not be of "excellent" quality.. but I tried as best I could with the materials at hand.

    Anything at all is much appreciated. Hopefully not just by me, but all Warwick fanatics :) Thanks again!

    My pleasure! It was fun, actually! I love photography, and love photographing guitars and basses.

    In any case, this was only possible by the kind and generous efforts of one of the Warwick / Framus employees who kindly let is take out each instrument and photograph them... Without her, none of the photos would have been possible.

    I am only worried that someone in China will use the serials and photos to make fakes like they do of so many high-priced guitars...

    Authentic Markneukirchen dust! How cool is that? Do they sell it through the Custom shop?

    Very, incredibly, wonderfully nice of that employee. Nah, I wouldn't worry about reproductions of vintage stuff, or that would have been attempted long ago with all the old ones in this forum.

    And by old ones, I mean people and Warwicks. :D

    Plus, it would be quite a feat to recreate cracked necks/headstocks :rolleyes::p

    The guy next to me said : "Now, this is a bass for you, I can see it suits you very well".
    I agreed.
    I was not able to take it home, but I'm sure that if there ever is a Buzzard built for me, it'll be built with this exact shape.

    Very cool, Henry. I just hope that one day they start the camp again, so some of us have the same opportunity. Dave looks good with the old bird.

    Totally. Just imagine the fortune HP could have made it he would have kept some soil/timber pieces from the original factory. W freaks like us would pay good money for that "crap" :p:cool::D

    Yes! I also saw several Buzzards in the production, we saw two necks and one body (even though our Guide said that they were no longer in production, these were custom-shop orders)

    What? Great! It´s Right that they don´t produce Buzzards on stock but only on request. Waiting for them appearing in the CS gallery!

    Just an update, I have asked Florin if there is a place I can upload the 200+ photos to make a permanent archive as I do not trust online photo sites. Will post the photos when I can :)
