    Great player that has seen plenty of gig time before coming to me. 100% functional, great sound, and set up 3/32" - 2/32" for fast and snappy playability. Wenge neck! 3 band active/passive electronics from the Streamer Stage II installed. A really sweet bass, but my Lakland USAs are covering my gigs perfectly right now, so this isn't going to get played (its hard going back and forth between 19mm and 17mm spacing).

    $950 shipped/lower 48 (price drop to $925). Payment by postal money order only. International shipping is possible, but is done at the buyer's expense. Trades considered (anybody got an older Music Man?).

    Its a D shape like most warwicks, definitely has some meat to it, but I don't find it overly bulky. Its a very nice playing bass.

    Is this the "wide neck" model? I'm not well versed on Warwicks. I know the one I heard was a Corvette and it was really fat sounding and I tried it out and it had really great action.

    No, this has roughly the same string spacing as a streamer stage II which is fairly narrow. That makes it play very fast and smooth for fingerstyle, and I don't have trouble slapping on it. The maple body and wenge neck gives a cool combination of the woody warwick sound and the more traditional spector-like sound. Its a bolt-on so it has more punch and slightly less deep lows than a SSII.

    Hmmm ... surprised this isn't moving. I guess I can look at trades to see if there is anything interesting out there ...

    I might look at that if it were fretted ... I've already got a nice fretless 5 that I literally have not played in over 5 years.
