    ***Please PM me with any questions or offers... I sometimes miss when people post in the thread... Thanks!!!***

    Thanks for looking!!! Here we have a 1993 Warwick Fortress One Fretless 4 string. This is an amazing Fretless from the early 90's when Warwick was making amazing basses (my favorites are the early ones). Super easy to play and sounds amazing!!! Wenge neck, ebony fretboard (I think).
    The bass has EMG pickups and preamp (18 volt).
    The hardware on the bass is a lot newer (probably a few years old). Original hardware was chrome, and looking worn, so I changed all of it to the black hardware. I think it looks 10 times better personally on this bass.
    This is not a closet queen lol.... I am the 2nd owner and have had it for a few years. All the bumps and bruises were put on it before me. I tried to take pics of everything best I could. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Also, I just installed a Brand New set of Chromes on it!! Sounding sweet!!
    Asking $1,300 shipped anywhere in the USA... Sorry NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING... PayPal is fine.
    Check out the pics and hit me up if you are interested... Thanks for looking and God Bless!!!

  3. Haven't seen one with two 1/4 inch jacks. One for battery pack?

    Sorry for the late reply!!! It only has one input jack.... It has the recessed strap locks, but has one regular strap pin on it. I am the 2nd owner. I don't know if the first owner added the extra strap pin, or if he added the recessed ones. I think the recessed would have been the original in 1993 but not 100% sure about that.
  6. Just now reading this. On the road and still a week to go. l'm thinking the strap lock on the right (the one flush with the body) is the original as it looks identical to the one on my 1994 Fortress One. The other would have allowed the first owner to wear it lower.

  7. Sorry, I needed more sleep. The left one is the 1/4" plug, same as on my '94. The center one (now being used) is the same as on my '94. The one to the right (not being used) would be the added-on one. It would raise the body a few inches, and lower the neck a few inches. Possibly the original owner had long arms and this would give him some relief. Enjoy. I played the fool out of mine before trading up to my German made '08 $$ Corvette. Now I play the fool out of it!
