    So I picked this up recently off ebay. The guy was selling it to finance his federal tax bill or he wouldn't have parted with it. it's in fantastic shape, one teeny dent on roundover below knobs, bearly noticible. Can't get a good pic of it, will try again if you demand one.

    Bubinga body, Ovangkol neck.
    MEC pickups
    Currently has flats on it, fingerboard is in very good shape, light string scarring, nothing major.

    (more photos at: http://lordgoogle.com/bass/wick/ )

    This thing has sooooo much tone, it's insane. the sound is fantastic, and makes my fretless fender J sound anemic. The neck is smooth and nice to feel, and it sits pretty comfortably with a strap.

    I'm letting it go because it just doesn't feel right to me. I'm huge on how a bass feels, and when in stores I don't plug basses in until I find one that feels good to play while unplugged. I took a gamble buying the 'vette without playing one first, and it's just not gonna work out between us sadly.
    There's absolutely nothing wrong with this bass, and the sound is fantastic, but for me sound is second to feel.


    Trades only, I'll add or take cash for off-value trade.
    Looking for a fretless 4, possibly 5. I'll throw in some cash if necessary to trade up.
    No fenders, already have a fretless fender J thanks.
    No paintjobs, I want to see wood. Burst finish might be ok.

    Also interested in a decent acoustic, fretted or fretless.


    reply here or PM with offers. I'll try to take some photos tonight if I have time.
    (Oh, came to me with a warwick rockbag. sweet bag that I wouldn't mind keeping depending on trade.)

    went over it carefully last night, there's one small dent on the bottom under the knobs, it's just bigger than a pinhead in size and bearly deep enough to catch your thumbnail. Other than that, appears to be pretty darned pristine.

    Trade offers?

    I don't know how long you've got it, but maybe you'd like to give it another chance. It took me weeks until I felt completely comfortable with my corvette and now I like the feel very much, my next bass will most probably also be a warwick..
    Ok, you still wanna trade, I'll go hide now.

    heh, yeah. I've had it for almost two months now.
    I like it in some ways, but don't in other ways.

    send some pics of the actual bass to derelictmartyr@yahoo.com

    I don't really mind the dings in the body unless they're fractures.

    What I'd really want is a shot down the neck while the strings have no tension and if you could take a pic of the truss rod too so I can see it isn't stripped. Those two pics are what I have in mind. Up for trade, I'll let you know after the pics :ninja:

    ...
    The body's fine.
    The action's awesome, the truss rod cover looks like it's never been removed.

    I'll take some pics this evening if I can, packing for a trip tomorrow morning though...

    sorry, 6 is at least 1 too many strings for me. Thanks though!
