    I deleted the earlier thread on this bass because I wanted to change the title from “Feeler” to “For Sale.” I have come to terms with my own rule of “If it is hanging as wall art for more than 6 months it goes.” This is a great fretless, tons of mwah and plays like butter. But my Rob Allen MB2 is just getting more fretless play.

    Virtually in mint condition. You will not find any imperfections less one small nick on the back top of the tuner board that can be seen in the serial number photo. Cleaned and waxed it when I bought this used a year or so ago.

    Regular (as apposed to Warwick’s broad neck) full wenge neck and slim neck profile unlike that of Warwicks post 1999. No fingerboard wear to speak of.

    1998 vintage and all original less the strings of course.
    Serial No. G-050465-98
    34” scale
    Brass Just-A-Nut.
    4-piece regular wenge neck and ebony fingerboard, bolt-on construction.
    2-piece dark figured Ovangkol body with no marks.
    All original MEC pickups and preamp.
    Thomastik flat wounds JF345. Only a handful of rehearsals on them, virtually new.
    Thumb 5-strings have spec. 16.5mm string spacing at the bridge.

    Comes with:
    TKL hardshell case and Warwick Rockbag gig bag, each original to the bass and clean. 3 allen wrenches to adjust truss rod and bridge. Can of Warwick wax.

    $1400 for all, including shipping CON US. Not interested in trades right now, thanks.
