    I had this posted briefly last week, but got deleted because I was not a supporting member.

    Well, decided to contribute to the fourm and became a member.

    Looking to see what my 04' Warwick thumb B.O 5 string is worth?

    I've got it listed in the classifieds for $1200 but no bites at the moment.

    It's in great shape, but has some basic wear from use.

    The back of the bass has some very faint marks, nothing that ate into the wood, actually I think this is just the clear coat, a fresh coat of wax would probably get rid of them, you can hardly see them, only if you look at it at the right angle in bright light.

    has a small ding on the 5th fret on the top end of the fret board.

    and a small ding on the bottom near the bridge.

    Also, one of the tuning knobs has a little of the black paint that flaked off

    No case either.

    I pictured all defects I could find below


    Am I in the right ball park with price?

    Thank you for your time

    I would say it is easily worth what you are asking. There is a sub board on Talkbass as well you might want to post in.

    Yeah, I think you're in the right range. If I didn't have my eye on something else and already have a Warwick, I would be all over it.

    The more exposure you have the better the chance of selling.

    TB isn't exactly money central. Keep the ad up and refresh every once in a while. I would also list with Criags.

    It's a cool bass. Maintain and it will sell.

    Also, tax refund season is almost here. I would bet you will get some bites when those start coming in.
