    Virtually in mint condition with just a small ding or two on the back near the input jack that I can’t photograph.

    When I bough this bass used off of a TBer in Nov./Dec. 2007 I cleaned and waxed it, oiled the fingerboard, replaced a bad ¼”stereo barrel jack (required to feed battery power to the Warwick preamp when you insert a ¼” jack) and a bridge intonation screw or two with original Warwick parts I ordered, adjusted the string height to original specs and set the intonation. Currently strung with a set of d’Addario Prosteels regular light gauge with very little wear and no gigging.

    She has a regular neck as apposed to Warwick’s broad neck. Full wenge neck/fingerboard and a slim neck profile unlike that of Warwicks post 1999. Minimal if any fret wear.

    1998 vintage and all original less the strings of course and the replaced jack and intonation screws per above.
    Serial No. F-049647-98
    34” scale
    Brass Just-A-Nut.
    5-piece bolt-on wenge neck and wenge fingerboard.
    2-piece ovangkol body.
    2.008” (51mm) nut and 16.5mm bridge string spacing.
    Original BassLines pickups and Warwick preamp.

    Comes with:
    Warwick Rockbag gig bag, strap locks, and can of Warwick wax.

    $1400 plus shipping, CON US only. No trades right now, thanks.

    How can you sell that? It matches your floors!

    One of my students has a left-handed fretless version of this bass. Great instrument - the best Warwick ever made (I hate those MEC pickups - these Seymour Duncans are much better). If I had the dough, I'd buy it, but just getting over a heart attack and quintuple bypass surgery.

    Good luck. Would you be into shipping it to Canada if I can get one of my students interested?

    Here's a bump for a great bass.

    Cheers,
    Cameron

    Guys,

    this is.......hands down....... the nicest sounding bass I have ever played, and that's saying a lot! The only reason I sold this amazing bass was the weight...... I was touring at the time and hi-speed stage runs, twist-jumps and other stage acrobatics were basically requirements. I still have not gotten that sound again since.


    Def worth the cash.

    I was the first owner of this bass. This is the best neck ever and best sounding bass I ever had. Too bad I can't get used to a 6 string...
