    -24 frets
    -Bolt-on construction

    This bass is beautifully-made and has a great, thick, monstrous P-bass-type tone, I hate to see it go but Spring cleaning is in progress. Bass has spent 90% of its life in the case and essentially is in the same condition I received it in. It's primarily been used at home for videos/recording, but never used live much since I began playing Warwick.

    Two videos with recorded audio for tone sample:
