...so I'm guessing this thread I started also aligned the cosmos or something because I just landed this!
It popped up on eBay last week and what do you know, I just happened to be selling a ton of crap on eBay myself. Stayed up 'till 2 AM waiting to battle it out with other eBayers, but low and behold it was only me!
I've been wanting a 5 string Dolphin since I first saw a dude playing one on a late night show (Letterman or Arsenio?) back around 1990. Once I discovered I was a wide spacing guy, it's been a battle ever since to land a broadneck on the used market.
I forwarded off the auction pics to Warwick and they responded with the following info:

I'm so excited to receive the bass, it's currently enroute. This is a life long dream! I'll post better pics once I receive it and get it all waxed up and shiny
