It’s my „play at home“ bass. The best Preci that Warwick ever built. ;)

Comparing the Reverso with the Stryker:

At first: reverse the body shape was a great idea! When I owned my first Stryker back in 2008 I was a beginner and "could not handle". And I thought to myself (and even wrote about it in this forum), that it would much more comfortable to have the bass around the neck in the opposite way. When they invented the Reverso there was no chance but to get one, a Korean first (that golden one). Last year I could get a German for a great deal (quilt maple top).

The body shape is not just reversed, actually it is a complete own shape.

The neck profile is all different too, Stryker: 44 mm fat neck, Korean Reverso: 38,5 mm, German Reverso: 36,5 mm ("pencil neck").

German Reverso 36,5 mm vs. Stryker 44 mm.

I agree a lot with Clayton's choices in bass stuff.

The Pro Series Reverso in action. Uhh, our singer got much better in the meantime! The PS Reverso was my main stage bass for two years.

Experience in the band: cutting like a knife, the tone very close to the Korean Reverso. At home the difference in the sound is much bigger than in a band context. Because the signal is free from any interfering sounds and the balance between the strings is perfect the German Reverso still would be the much better choice for recordings. But on stage - that is my first impression - the Korean Reverso is not that far behind.
