    Oh, I see and totally agree on the low g string output. Reminds me of my old NT5. I had to raise that side a bit higher than normal to compensate. My former SS2 had active pups and tremendous output on every string. I just couldn't do the fat neck anymore.
    The HB rig will stay with me until it breaks down. I would end up spending the same on any new quality rig anyway. Glad I got it really cheap. The Mesa M9 is a beast! I prefer it over the M6 after testing both with Mesa cabs at GC out here. I'm only gigging about once a week, so, it's not too much trouble to haul it around.
    I know we all wish we could've kept all of our former Warwicks but:(. The only one I'm still interested in is a SS1 5 or LX-5 because of the wide spacing. the most important thing is that you have a nice bass to play whenever you can and you have the luxury of choosing gigs around real life.

    If you were closer, I'd swap you my CC for your BC and pay the difference. Shipping costs could be an issue though.

    My SSII is a 2000 model and has a very thin neck. It feels great. It is always my go-to!

    I don't know where else to post this. I just scored a Club Cab for $550 shipped.. it has some cosmetic damage but nothing major. Since this is where the HiFi sound comes from in my Big Cab (which never leaves the house due to being cumbersome/heavy), I can couple it with a regular old 2x10 or 2x12 and get Big Cab sound without the trouble..

    That makes sense. My post should have said "Lo Cab alone is fantastic". That's the 3rd time I've used the LC alone and was again impressed. My situation requires more punch than dynamics and with pa support, the LC makes a great stand alone imho.

    Cool I should try it I have only used my low cab three times as I only use it with a full stack with the club up top and not too many venues require that much

    I hear a lot of flubbing from the sub in my Big Cab (Low Cab woofer) with the volume up on the B string.

    The string spacing is fine.. it's the same as my SSII and any other 5 string Warwick that's not a broadneck.

    It completely lacked any balls up high. No matter what I did on the G string, it was about 2/3 the volume of the rest of the strings. I adjusted the setup, tried different strings, neck relief, raising/lowering the string and pickups.

    I came to the conclusion one of the following were true:
    -This particular combination of woods doesn't care for the vibration of the G string
    -This particular bass didn't like the vibration of a G string (I was never able to try another P-Nut III so I had no way of knowing)
    -There was a problem with the electronics (i doubted this because it didn't matter if it were on the front or rear pickup)

    I didn't care to investigate further, so I got rid of it.
