    I really dig that. I had one a Fortress 1 back around '95 and I really regret selling it. It's probably the only sell that if I could do it over again, I wouldn't do it. This just may be my chance to get another one.

    While I'm a Streamer man myself (I own a German made bolt-on from '95), this one does look absolutely gorgeous!

    Me too, thankfully it will be totally within my budget on the used market.

    I played the 4 at NAMM. It was really nice sounding. Very broad range of tones an pretty versatile. Not as aggressive as my Masterman was but that's to be expected. The top was unreal. Such a cool wood. I think I would have liked it better with a wenge board too.

    Either way, it was a great bass.

    Is that a wider neck on the four? I'm a 'B' width guy, standard Warwick 4 necks are like a very round J, which doesn't do it for me.

    That bass looks to have a nice big neck, and might actually balance well....sexy.

    It felt like a standard Warwick 38mm neck. I'm not positive though. The neck was good for me, not too round
