    Hey folks. I have a couple of basses for sale or trade. Have to recoup some funds from a bass I purchased.

    First is a Spector Euro 4LX. [DEL]$950[/DEL] KEEPING
    Next is a Warwick Corvette Standard 5 (MIG). $675 (pending)

    The Scoop:

    Euro LX:
    The pricing on this one reflects some finish cracks described and shown below. The story with this bass is when I bought it, something happened during shipping and the finish checked (see pics). I was happy with how it played, so I didn't make a fuss about it. It just didn't dethrone my good old faithful NS2000. Has maybe 2 or 3 frets that could use leveling. Low action with a fresh set of low riders (as currently set up) hides it well, but putting lower tension strings would require medium action.

    Here are some specs:
    NECK: 3-Piece USA Rock Maple
    Neck-Thru Body Construction
    FINGERBOARD: Rosewood
    NUMBER OF FRETS: 24
    SCALE LENGTH: 34"
    RADIUS: 16"
    STRING SPACING AT BRIDGE: 19mm
    NUT WIDTH: 1.65"
    NUT MATERIAL: Brass
    BODY: Alder back, Burled Poplar top, Walnut slice
    WEIGHT: +/- 8.5 lbs...I can get exact though it's definitely under 9.
    PICKUPS: EMG TW
    PREAMP: Spector Tone Pump
    CASE: Spector OHSC
    Schaller straplocks. Will include gold strap side components as well.

    Warwick Corvette
    Bought this gal locally and love 'er, but she doesn't get the play time my Pedulla does. I wasn't crazy about the passive MEC setup, so I swapped them for a set of EMG LJCS5's with the 2-band BTS preamp. Still have the originals that I may sell, but if you're interested in having them with the bass, we can work something out.

    Love the neck on this one...super chunky and fat and very comfortable. Superb fretwork across the ovangkol board and the ovangkol neck is the ultimate in stability. Very easy to change tunings on the fly without adjustments. The 16.5 mm spacing makes it very fast and has killer low action. Includes a fresh set of Marcus Millers. Like all corvettes, she's a bit of a neck diver, but I always play standing so it's not an issue for me. 2006 bolt on, transparent black. Schaller straplocks. Will include black strap side components as well. The only thing this bass needs is a battery clip. I have the battery just sitting in there (laziness at its best). No case, but will be properly packed. Fairly light for a 5, maybe 9 lbs ish.

    Nut: 1 3/4" just a nut
    Neck: Ovangkol/Ovangkol
    Pickups: EMG LJCS5
    Preamp: EMG BTS
    Spacing: 16.5 mm

    I'm pulling the Spector for the moment. I've decided to have some work done rather than selling. Warwick is pending.
