    Can someone tell why this is a collector's item?? (not trying to be smug, just thought collector's item would be something more special)
    Fill me in:)
     
  2. It's not a collector's item. It's a collectere's item!

    H o l y Crap! Mick Cervino... I am buying that bass.. The name is enough for me, I don't need to see pictures to know it will be a collector's item. Warwicks being so rare these days, I can see why the price is so high:rolleyes:
     
  8. I heard that it's so rare because it plays itself, leaving you to go to the bar and have a few beers.
    Hell it probably packs up your gear and drives you home too!!!:D

    It allows you to drone notes while a pomous guitarist arpeggiates his way to a rock and roll land-speed record.

    It's for collectors who like to be in the shadows playing roots.

    Its a, d, and g strings collected dust while the e was pounded mercilously.
    :D

    But in all seriousness, the Fortress is no longer being made so people are hoping that they are going to become rare, collectors item type basses. Not $2,000 rare, but maybe in 25 years or so.
