    RARE 1998 Warwick FNA Corvette 5 in beautiful turquoise finish. Swamp ash body, maple top, walnut layer, full wenge neck, wenge fretboard.
    Very light - only 8.4 lbs!!

    Active preamp - knobs are push/pull volume (bass boost & mid cut), treble, mid, bass. Has a HUGE growly tone that can be morphed into many different shapes using the powerful EQ. Can do hi-fi grind, thick and wooly, smooth and glassy, snarly and burpy, anywhere in between! Electronics are completely silent with no static, crackle, or hum.

    Full wenge neck has beautiful tight grain - very unique smooth feeling. Frets are in GREAT condition and just polished. No buzzes anywhere on the fretboard. Has slight relief with no warping or twists. Truss rod turns smoothly in both directions and nut is not stripped.

    Classy gold hardware and everything is adjustable (bridge height, action, spacing, nut, tuners, etc). They don’t make them like this anymore - As TalkBass knows, pre-1999 models are rare and highly desireable. Bass has a few nicks and slight buckle rash, but is purely cosmetic. Includes matching gold Dunlop recessed straplocks and strap.

    Comes with non-original gig bag. Can be shipped anywhere in CONUS at buyer’s expense. Masked pick up in Queens, or can be hand delivered anywhere in NYC for small fee. Thanks for your interest!

    oh man. I have a red '98 that I bought new. Not to start any arguments, but "Stingray killer" is appropriate.

    Mostly interested in outright sale, but PM me trade offers anyway. Would be interested in other pre-99 5/6 string Warwicks and a few others... Worst I can do is say no. Thanks!
