Did buy my Warwick at that point but i've nit been able to replace the effects and other stuff.
That's really sad...
I lost a 86 JAP Precision when I was 19. I miss it so bad and still get angry about it 10 years later. It was a great bass. At the time those basses weren't in very high demand so I only gave $125 for it at a local music shop. Replaced the nut, strings, and set up and loved every minute I had with it. The last time I saw one identical to mine on eBay it was over 500 dollars....
I still have my first bass, but it's worth more to me in sentimental value than monetary value... It's a Gremlin 30" scale Pcopy. I see them come up on eBay from time to time for like 50 bucks... yeah, I'll just keep it. It's actually still set up and plays, and is hanging on the wall in my living room.
