    I have for sale a like new Warwick Alien Rockbass Standard Acoustic Electic bass. I bought this for an acoustic project I thought I'd be working on, but it didn't pan out, so I've decided to put it up for sale. This is the Standard, fretted, 4 string model.

    If you aren't familiar with these, they are great. I love the thinner, jazz like neck and the shorter scale makes it extremely comfortable to play.

    Here are the specs....

    • Nut: Just-a-Nut III
    • Neck Wood: Mahogany neck
    • Fretboard: Rosewood fingerboard (fretted)

    • Fret quantity material and size: 24 Extra high Jumbo Nickelsilver frets (Width: 2.9 mm / Height: 1.3 mm)
    • Bodywood (Topwood / Backwood): Laminated Spruce top / back and sides made of laminated Agathis
    • Pickups: Fishman Sonicore piezo pickup
    • Electronics: Fishman Sonitone preamp
    • Bridge system: Rosewood bridge with bone saddle and slotted bridge pins
    • Construction: Set Neck, Acoustic Bass
    • Colour possibilities: Natural High Polish (top), solid black High Polish Finish (back and sides), Black High Polish or Vintage Sunburst
    • Hardware color: Chrome
    • String label / gauges:
    • Warwick Red Bronze Acoustic 045" - .105" (35200 MS)
    • Weight: 2.9 kg (6.4 lbs)

    This bass is in absolute mint condition and has never left my house. It will ship with a Warwick Rockbag gig bag.

    Price is [DEL]$500[/DEL] [DEL]$475 [/DEL] $450 shipped to the lower 48...payable through PayPal or a USPS Money Order. PM me with questions or feel free to shoot me an e-mail to peabody59@gmail.com.

    Free bump for a great acoustic bass.

    I own a Rockbass Alien Deluxe 6 and love it. The Rockbass Aliens are an excellent value, especially for their low prices. Such a beautiful deep tone. Everyone I've played it for tells me it sounds and looks fantastic.

    When I was making my ABG decision, I actually chose the Rockbass Alien over the Warwick model for a few reasons. Number one being the significant price difference. The second reason was that I did not care for the thumb rest that came with the Warwick version.

    Since this seller is including the gigbag, that is especially a great value for the eventual happy TB owner. Unfortunately for myself, I did not buy a gigbag or case when I ordered mine. I will need to order one later.

    I was selling this to buy a Lakland Hollowbody 30 I had my eye on, but it looks like I missed out on that bass. Because of that, I'm not in as big of hurry to sell this one, although I will leave it up for sale.

    If you're in the market for an A/E bass, this is a terrific bass for the money.

    Also, I would certainly consider a trade toward one of the Lakland HoBo 30's...with some cash on my part.

    I've had a couple of inquiries to see if this is still available....and it is. I've been in kind of a "passive" selling mode, but it is still for sale....and a great bass to boot.
