I just bought my first bass. Dunno why, I blame talkbass, but I got the idea, that it should have 5 string. Not many 5 stringer for sale in my hood. There where 3 candidares. So I took a chance on a Warwick Fortress Masterman.
After getting it to our rehearsel space and a decent amp, I find that it playes well, and while it does not sound bad. I was not blown away either. Mind you it was not bad at all, but I might actually prefer a passive pup.
So here are my questions. The double jazz pup it cones with is a funny size, if I want to throw something else in, is it possible to find a pup rhat fits?
I've googled a bit and I think we are talking maple body and wenge neck, tho I'm unsure. Neck consists of three pieces of wood btw.
Serial number is 055xxxx-98, does that make it an 1998 bass?
The tuners say west-germany, which I find kinda cute and very nostalgic
