    They aren't very a popular model honestly. Even the NT, which isn't that expensive isn't very popular. It is a great bass though, don't understand why...

    They are nice basses indeed :) Their look are more appreciated in asia it seems, but I've seen a very sexy nirvana black one. It looks kind of different.

    It got a very special shape. It looks like it's made for one purpose: to sit when you play :p

    That's fitting,coz the Katana has a bum.

    Yeah, I used to have a NT 5 and the tone was AMAZING. It was just uglier than sin. I might end up picking up another one because you can get them dirt cheap used.

    I love the look feel and sound of the Katana. I always wondered why it wasn't a more popular model. I've only seen a Katana in person once (it was a NT) and I was this close to buying it. I sat there and played it for about 2 hours. It was used at GC for $1000 and now I'm kicking my own ass for not getting it when I had the chance.

    I cant help but think if there were more Katanas in shops,they might be more popular.But the fact of the matter is,there's bugger all.Maybe they're all shipped to Asia.

    Dumbest thing I ever did was return mine. It had way more character than my Proline.

    Thanks a lot !

    I think a Katana will be my next purchase, as this bass is the only WW featuring a true neck pickup and a broad spacing between the two.

    Can you post some soundclips ??
