Comments about Warwick Rockbass Fortress Electric Bass:

-Best Sounding Pickups I've Ever Heard On A Bass
-Body is solid, heavy and has great balance
-The Neck Is Very Thin And Light
-Great Sustain

However,
-The Bass Came Poorly Setup (Guitar Tech Couldn't get the action low, either.)
-The intonation was off.
-It is nearly impossible to get a low, comfortable action without having a ton of fret buzz
-Lastly, I am getting uneven volume from the strings. (I'm guessing due to the way the bass was set up.)
-Warwick seems to be nearly impossible to contact about possible fixes?

Altogether, this bass sounds great, I just ended up getting one that has some issues. It could be a one-in-a-million thing, but this was my experience with this bass.
