I happened to drop by a "vintage" guitar store yesterday on a whim, and was looking around their bass section. On the wall was a Warwick, with a $ 550.00 price tag. I picked it up, played around on it a little. It was very light, the neck was nice and fast; I didn't get a chance to plug it in and hear it, but it really felt great in my hands. The guy at the guitar store had no clue as to which model it was, though, and neither did I. Since all I know of Warwick is what I read on here, maybe someone with more knowledge can tell me if this thing is a low-priced gem, or an overpriced used lower-end model. The pickup configuration was a J-type in the neck position, and a soapbar at the bridge. It had the oversized upper horn, so I was thinking "Thumb", but I didn't know if all the Warwicks had that same basic shape. I asked what the neck wood was, and again, the guy at the store was as clueless as I; the color was sort of a dirty beige, not blond like maple, but not dark, either. It was a 4-stringer as well, if that helps. Also, the clerk told me the body was swamp ash, but I'm not sure if that's reliable info or not. If this isn't enough information, does Warwick have a website where I can try to find this model? I just want to know if I need to go back to this store immediately with $ 550.00 in hand, or just pass this one by. Any help would be great.
