    I'm only selling this to offset the purchase of 2 Roscoes I just picked up. The tone of this bass is off the charts. The session work I've used it on lately has went over very well with clients and engineers. This thing as tone and mwah for days. She's in great condition for a '94. Just minor normal wear and the finish has rubbed off just a touch above the bridge position from thumb wear. It's got all the goodies on it that Warwick is known for. It has the original MEC pickups and 2 band preamp. It's an all quilt maple body and wenge neck and fingerboard. She comes in at a rock solid 10 lbs of Warwick love. Please feel free to shoot me any questions you may have. The price includes shipping to the lower 48.

    My fortress 4 is the most growly, tight bass I've ever played. Sits in the mix so well.

    I traded a CIJ Fender Geddy Lee for it. I love the bass but with he two roscoes now I can't hold on to 8 basses right now. What would you like to know?

    Nothing in particular. Just if there was a significant reason you're selling it so soon!

    I just bought two Roscoe's and I can't have 8 basses in the stable and have a happy wife!
