    I got this bass from Vic about a month and a half ago, but I recently moved to Colorado from my native Illinois and am not gigging currently, plus I have another Warrior 5 that has some flaws that I can play in the meantime.

    Here's the specs on this bass...

    Swamp ash body
    Water Cured Redwood Burl top
    Maple/Purpleheart/Maple neck
    Purpleheart fingerboard
    34" scale, 24 frets, bone nut
    9V bart preamp with 3 band EQ, 3-way mid switch
    Bart X55 pickups
    Hipshot A bridge and ultralight tuners
    19mm spacing at the bridge
    8.5lbs

    The bass has the Warrior "Sizzle" control bypassed and a normal gain circuit in place for the Bart pre, wired in by Vic before I got the bass. For more information on this whole thing, you can check out the following thread, where Vic outlines the situation: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/shocker-warrior-adam-nitti-signature-424333/

    Bottom line is that the bass sounds amazing, and is QUIET! I only got to gig or record with it a couple of times but it is an aggressive bass that can cut through a mix with no issues whatsoever.

    I'm looking to get $1800 for this bass, plus shipping. I can ship the bass in either an incase slim bag that has a zipper issue on the outside pocket or a nice Access gig bag. Buyers choice.

    I'm also willing to look at trades/partial trades. Specifically looking for a jazz 5. Low End, Sadowsky, Lull, Fender etc or a Stingray 5 HS with a maple board.

    Oh Damn! This is gonna go quick! Nice bass and great price! Wish I had the money.




    On another note.......curious about the string windings at the tuning pegs being loose like that.

    Those are not the strings currently on the bass and I'm not sure if that's an optical illusion or not as that's a normal wrap. Thanks!
