wow - congratulations and enjoy that feeling as long as it lasts. You even have a gig bag and figured out the stand problem
Thanks to the long weekend, I created my first bass video. If you are interested in how the Buzzard 5 NT CS sounds, please check out the video on YT and let me know what you think. This was recorded directly into the interface with almost no processing in order to demonstrate the pure bass sound.
Thanks CeeJ, that was my first time playing it for more than a minute. It definitely has a mighty sound incl. B string. Now I understand what that piano string sound is. For real music, it might need some effects, especially some tube amp distortion. And it has a lot of dynamic range. Given my uneven right hand skills, this means I would also need to add some compression.Thanks for making that. I actually saw it a couple nights ago on YT and it was cool to hear that B string and see it being played. Cellar DEEP!
Congrats again on your Bird! _\^^/

The 8 string is in evolution, check the thread!This is clearly parallel evolution... Warburton Music... this is like waking up in an alternate delusional dimension.
Speaking of alternate dimensions...
What’s up with the Russian Federation Buzzard on Reverb?
Warwick Buzzard Limited Edition 1990 Natural | ProAudioFromMoscow | Reverb
Someone mentioned this before and I would love to hear whatever you might know about the history on it?
In other news... I sent my 90’ Buzzard to Mike Lull’s (RIP) Luthiers for a spa day... she’s getting a full set up and PLEK’d.
Her neck is also being profile matched for shaving down / re-shapzing the neck of my 2007 Dolphin from @warwickhunt from a chunky D profile to the Buzzard.
Looking forward to having these home soon!
Lastly, @Hardy did you get the 8 string Buzzard yet?????
I can’t wait to see her!!!
Correction: It was actually 1986! Just found this link The Who This Month! 1986My first exposure to a Buzzard was in 1987 when I worked for Guitar Center in Chicago. I had set up several synthesizer rigs for a show called the NAMM JAM at the Vic Theatre, and had to make a repair to a keyboard backstage. I needed to check my repairs, so I went to the warm up room to plug into an amp, and there was John Entwistle, playing one! Of course I was struck by seeing JE, but what really shook me was his bass; a gorgeous Zebrano Buzzard. I thought to myself, “That thing must’ve been made just for me! I must have one!" It is truly one of my most prized possessions.
