    Stoked! Congrats @BoozerBane

    If I'm not mistaken (and I very could be), you can request a video of the production from start to finish. Or maybe that's included for all CS Wicks now. Maybe send them a note asking for this, if that's something you'd dig :)

    @Florin and @Hardy might know more about that.

    Good point! For such a beast you can demand it and also they fill in your music if you like.

    Hold the phone for a quick tinkle, there, who do I contact about this?

    The doctor bass people (that may have been someone from warwick..)
    or the warwick employee who took care of the payments?

    Or some other very kind bloke?

    Since you've already placed the order and they have a good chunk of your money, I'd think you could contact Warwick directly with that request. Or do both, and make sure they get it :)

    How do I actually contact warwick directly, though?

    And we'll see what the people who took my money will say.
    * Also sent a request to the contact page on the custom shop page.

    Marcus Spangler will build your bass or at least will control the process. I have his mail address... somewhere...

    Hi buddy, try to find out when the bass will enter production. On the sheet you signed you should already have the bass code, something with many digits. If you provide that info to me I could help at least having some pictures taken. I will also ask HP Wilfer if they can film this project :)

    Marcus is the Man. The Wood Whisperer.
    So, you sticked to your specs ?
    Out of sheer curiosity, and if you don't mind me being incredibly nosey, are you in the 5-10k / 10-15k or Over 15k Price Range ?

    My last quote was about 12. :)

    Need to work 1 1/2 years without spending any money for taxes, food, living or anything to afford this.
    Not that I wouldn't do this for a CS Warwick, my biggest fear: I won't like it after a few months and want to trade it in for some other warwick.

    Back to topic:
    Congrats on (or is it "to" or" for"?) purchase! I hope to see the finished Bass and the Making of Video

    Have also been eyeballing a .175 gauge rotosound string, in combination with black label 40301M set

    Plus an XL arm for the kahler

    Black Label do have 175, you can ask them to put those strings from factory, maybe some minor adjusments are needed.

    The set that includes a .175 is a 4 string set, which is why I thought about the single purchase rotosound.

    But I have asked them
    about the strings and all that, now.

    Yeah, just ask Doctorbass that you want 175- 45 or something, and they will do it. The .175 string is sold separate too IIRC
