    1998 model. The figuring and flame in this thing are insane. Mint condition, to boot!

    Thank you, gentlemen.
    I actually found it on eBay a while back. Reached out to the seller and convinced him to sell to me directly. Very smooth transaction. Came with the original gigbag, TR wrench, wax, and Warwick hat.

    :)

    I gotta agree. Almost makes me want one, although I think I'm more of a Corvette guy.

    Truly a great bass, and worthy of bragging about!
