    Here is a really rare piece. This particular one has the nicest top of any of these that I have seen (and they are few and far between). The coolest bass from Warwick.

    THUMB LIMITED PRODUCTION SINGLE CUT NT 5 - MAPLE 9 pc neck. ASH body, highly figured BUBINGA top, EBONY board. As good as it gets~ THE ULTIMATE FUNK MACHINE.

    $3850 or best offer, buyer pays shipping. I may consider partial trades but trade value would be slightly higher.

    This ships in a deluxe ROSCOE hard case - case and bass in fantastic shape.

    WOW!

    Absolutely Beautiful. Amazing top wood. I have never seen a thumb bass like this before.

    TTT!!!!

    Can you post a pic that shows the side view (to see how the back and top wood join/transition)?

    New pics posted and price lowered. Limited production. Very few of these out there. This is the PERFECT wood combination. Warwick finally got it right by eliminating the wenge and making an ASH bodied, MAPLE necked instrument. Very flexible tonally, perfectly balanced, easy access to all frets and the figuring of this bubinga top is unreal.

    pretty light overall for an SC due to the ash. I will weigh and post shortly.

    Best bass I ever owned. Worth mentioning this is a wideneck Warwick, 20mm spacing adjustable

    Every time this bass gets bumped, I start looking at it again, drooling and start making crazy rationalizations in my mind. Very sweet instrument.

    When it rains it pours, suddenly 3 interested parties and 2 serious offers. This one is still available although a couple of the offers are fairly close. Still prefer cash to trades though but if the offers keep up like this I might be motivated to trade. I can lay this one away. These are IMPOSSIBLE to find (Especially one with a top this nice).

    Very very close to an outright sale on this one. Awaiting confirmation, otherwise seriously considering 2 of the 3 trade proposals. Bass still available until one o these finalizes but the prospects are good that this one will be gone by the end of the week. LAST CHANCE . . .
