Whatever LTD Warwick makes needs to be somewhat affordable (even though they charge in the $4000 range for their LTDs every year), so i imagine no vamp. Probably another thumb LTD, its been awhile, maybe a thumb with different woods or a maple fingerboard...

I don't think it needs to be "somewhat affordable". For a limited edition bass, I'm ok with it being high end and high price. It's a way to show off just what the company is capable of. A special insntrumebt shouldn't, in my mind as a marketer, be sitting in the similar range to run of the mill basses put out by the company.

I completely agree, im just assuming Warwick will approach the LTD from a business angle instead of an art angle, as has been the case in the last couple of years. Nothing wrong with either

Hi People,
I just bought my first Warwick (as well as my first 5 string bass), the Vamp SN and I find it amazing, the sound and the feeling of it. I need a bit of time though to get used to the 5th string and the stringspasing.
Can somene please recommend me a set of strings? I play in flat D (now A) and use mostly heavy gauge, always in steinless steel. I can not find many 5 strings sets in which is each string thicker than in medium set.

Hi Hetzer, and welcome to the forum!

In my main band, we tune down to full steps, so that the lowest string is G. This requires some special strings (.166 and up), and I have been buying from Kalium with great success over many years. They have all kinds of different gauges, just check their site: Premium, Extended Range, Bass Guitar Strings | Kalium Music

Just a heads up though: the strings are not cheap, and their customer service can be a bit on and off, but the strings themselves are great!

Cheers, and good luck!

Thanks a lot. I just checked it our and they have everything possible. Too bad the shipping to Germany costs a bit more than a set of strings.

Wooo! First post in fifty years!

I can also recommend DR Hi-Beams 45-125. I`ve used them since 2008.
