    My dad saw a Warwick buzzard bass in a pawn shop here. He said it had one p pickup, two knobs, natural finish. He said it looked old and had an upside down nike swoosh headstock. Bolt-on. I just wanted to know if it might be worth anything. It was right at $300.

    Sounds like one of those fake Buzzards. Was the body shaped similar to a Fender?

    This is what a real Buzzard looks like.


    That shape will never be mistaken for a Fender.

    I have seen those fakes labeled as Warwick Buzzards, Alembic Elans, and some other boutique. I can't remember which one.

    Yep, Jeff is right. Sounds like one of the fakes.
