    I recently lost everything i own , wont go in to detail but sold my bass and amp.
    To be just the best wife in the wife in the my wife bought me a 5 string warwick fortress Rb from 04 for $227. It came with a hard shell case and strap locks.
    I love this bass!! But know zero about it , excep for it has active mec j pickups.and sounds great!.
    Im used to 5 string sr's and 4 string ltd's. In other word the u's and narrow spacing.
    So it feels beefy to me a bit but not in a bad way.
    My. Main question is "was it worth it?"
    I mean i love it either way so ya it was but as fare as value?
    It has slight wear on the neck and a ding or two but you really have to look and the wear on the neck just feels broke in .
    And needs a new input.
    I can only find info on the new RB.fortresses

    Two and a Quarter for a RockBass? Sure, it's worth it. These basses are pretty Under Rated. I had a Vampyre RB back in the day. I saw a video of me playing it years later and was Really Surprised at how GREAT it sounded. And I think I paid $225 for it...
