    `

    Artists switch, they just do, often for no apparent muiscal reason,
    and Wick offers a huge variety of models plus the CS, so I can't
    expect to feel sooprize when some artists switches to Warwick.

    Acoarst given that reasons for switching are more political and
    economical than musical, I can be equally nonsooprize when an
    artist switches away from Wick .... or ANY brand.

    I have friends who I'd be sooprize to find switching to Wick cuz
    they make their own choices for their own reasons, mostly for
    musical and ergonomic reasons, but price always matters too.

    i mentioned this in the chat box earlier but...
    A Les Claypool signature model - mix between infinty and streamer with that Carl Thompson style upper horn scroll
    I could also see John Paul Jones with a Thumb
    and Alain Caron with a Thumb SC 6er...on a side note, we should really rename the thumb sc the whale bass

    Thought so :)
    She has been doing it for quite some time in the past, and actually is right now afaik. Her new "all white bass" seems to be part of the show: I've seen pics with all muscians on stage playing white instruments.

    To contribute to the topic: Victor Wooten. I think he's someone that could really fall in love with Warwicks qualities. On the other hand he's (as his muscial appearence) completely uncoupled to the brands he's using. That's what I feel, at least - I personally focus on the instruments certian bass players use, but not with Mr Wooten as his style and personality prevail.

    I saw Chris Wolstenholme with a Streamer lx in a video, but i don't remeber wich video xD
    A SZ signature model, could be perfect for Les.

    I think Myung would go for a funkier shape than a streamer. 6 string narrow string spacing dolphin!

    I'd think he'd go Infinity or Vampyre, honestly.
