    What can I expect to find out there for prices on these two basses. I lost out on a flashback on ebay a couple of weeks ago . It went for 460USD and it didn't have the original pickups. There are a couple more on ebay right now,4s and 5s, and I'm just wondering what they normally go for used. I am seeing no bids at all on a 5, and it is priced at 700. Is this high? Were they not a well excepted bass, thus the discontinuation?Always loved the body shape and decided I want one, but I would like to make an informed purchase. Thanks in advance for your responses.

    I'd pay $750 for a 4.
    $850 for a 5.

    Also curious as to why they were discontinued by Warwick. They seem to be very nice instruments. Were they just not selling well enough. Was there amajor problem with them quality wise. Any info at all is appreciated.

    Absolutely no problems or defects.
    Great design.
    One of the most 'balanced' Warwick shapes ever.
