    1995 Corvette Proline 6 string in amazing condition. Bass doesn't look a year old, look at the pics, just a hair of tarnishing on the knobs. As you can see by the close body pics and fret pics, this bass wasn't played much, there isn't any sign of thumb wear by either of the pickups and no scuffing or scratches from slapping. The bass body has a few very minor little superficial knicks but not through the finish at all. Look at the nut, its not tarnished at all, shines like new brass. Action is low and neck is super straight, and gorgeous dark Wenge. The body on these Prolines is thinner than the standard Vettes and more contoured, its also all Maple so its tone is clean, clear and growly with the Wenge FB and neck. Bassline pups and 2 band pre amp. Even the "Basslines" logo isn't faded a bit. She weighs 11.2 on my digital bathroom scale and she feels and plays wonderfully. Balance wise, its WAY better than a Thumb, but not quite as good as a Streamer, but really good just the same. These Prolines were a few steps up in overall quality of woods and options than the standards, and the fit and finish on this bass is top notch. This isn't a "Teambuilt Pro series", this is a master built machine from Warwicks Silver era. I'm really torn on this but I just go to my Smiths and Streamers so she needs a new home to someone who appreciates such a wonderful instrument. The body is pretty highly figured flamed maple in spots and you can see the grain of the wood through the beautiful blue stain. Recessed strap locks (standard) with this bass and it will come in a deluxe brand new gig bag. Also comes with the truss rod tool, that I doubt youll use, the neck on these is solid. I forgot to mention the bass/treble pot is scratchy sometimes when you move it, but not always. I'm sure it just needs cleaning as it hasn't been used much. Asking $875 shipped CONUS. These are rare, especially a 6 in this condition, don't hesitate to ask questions or ask for more pics. No trades please.

    How do the basslines pups sound in comparison to the MECs? Also does this one have adjustable string spacing like the modern versions?

    The MEC pickups are a bit more bright and compressed, the basslines to me are a bit smoother and a hair quieter volume wise, I always noticed id bring up the master a bit more when I went to this bass. All of the German Warwicks have the bridge with the moveable saddles, so yes sir!

    Awesome, what is the range of string spacing you can get? I've heard some people claim you can go out to 18mm, but others say you can't. I prefer 17.5mm spacing.

    Also, do the basslines have that trademark warwick growl or is that more of the MEC sound? (an audio sample would be great) Trying to move one of my other basses before I get another one but I'm definitely interested.

    The growl comes from the woods used, Wenge mostly. I have no way to give you an audio sample, sorry. Youtube has some stuff though that will give you an idea.

    For what it's worth, I make audio samples all the time by just using my smartphone's recorder right next to the amplifier. It actually sounds halfway decent.

    I did a little direct comparison of my Warwick Corvette $$, a friend's Masterman, and a Vintage EB Stingray yesterday at the GC, doing just that.

    I had a 1999 Proline 6 Corvette. It was awesome. But it didn't have a MONSTER Non-Volute Wenge neck like this Beast!!! AMAZING!

    I have a Tobias with the same basslines pickups and the 3-band preamp. I absolutely love it! If I had a little more funds I would be all over this bass!
