SOLD! I'm considering selling my 1995 Warwick Fortress One 5 string which I've had for the last 6 years. As the pictures show, there's a lot of playing wear and mojo that's been accumulated over the last 6 years. If you're looking for a near-mint Fortress One, stop reading right now! If you're looking for a comfortable player bass, keep reading. I got it from a guy who said the bass was originally a '94 fretless until a neck swap with a friend, at which point the finish was re-done (and with some visible brush strokes, not too terribly well) and the stock electronics were pulled for a set of EMG active jazz pickups. It had no jack on the side of the body so I eventually added one and rewired, leaving a jack on the front of the bass only to fill the hole. The EMGs sound great, and while they're not the original MEC pickups, there's still tons of growling tone and buttloads of sustain. I swapped capacitors (forget what it's got now) to get more of a treble cut. There are numerous dents and dings on the body, scratched finish on the back of the body, slap/pop scrapes on the front, finger rest marks worn through the finish... The all-wenge neck is straight and true, feels great, but the headstock has some dents and scrapes from hitting things over the years. Serial number on the neck is A 000 602 95. The original Dunlop Straploks are included on a brown leather strap as well as a Warwick gig bag in good overall condition. [DEL]I'm thinking $500 firm local sale, $550 shipped in the 48 states.[/DEL] I'd feel best if someone interested in this sat down and played it for a while. It also saves me the hassle of carefully packing this and shipping it around the country. Maybe I'll get there in the interest of selling but for now, yeah, local only. I'm in Monroe, NY, about 45 miles North of NYC. Feel free to PM me.
