    Fan frets on a bass.. interesting.

    I tried a fan fret guitar once, felt odd but somehow nice.

    I wonder if I needed a longer arm to reach the 1st fret of the b-string ...

    35,5 inch is just 4 cm more than regular. As a Buzzard player I count this as upper fret area.

    I checked the price list. Buzzard increased from 7.100 Euro up to 8.000 Euro! No real news, no fanned fret option in the list.

    These seem to be all news for 2020. Not much moving at Warwick, the big news is Sadowsky I would say.

    I thought they would release a new Artist bass or something... guess they are too focused on the Custom Shop.

    Not much moving at all, they haven't made a post on Twitter since May of 2019.

    Warwick Announces New Gnome Bass Amp Heads - Bass Magazine - The Future of Bass

    My initial thoughts: Trace Elliot ELF copy. Even the chosen name gnome/elf makes me giggle.

    Thing is the Elf has a non-shelving low freq dial so it can more easily get away with being just 200w. If you dial in more lows, the unwanted subs will not take most of your watts - this is a big plus. The gain stage of the Elf also has a built in limiter which enables you to crank even more volume out of it. I do not know if the clip limiter on the gnome is on the input or output stage.

    Unless the Gnome series is very very cheap, I will strongly prefer the Elf instead.
