    Hey all,

    Well, it's time to reduce the bass collection a little. I have too many basses that don't see any action, so I'm letting go of some of my Warwicks. The next up is my Infinity five-string fretless. It's in good condition and has been cleaned regularly. I bought this used and it does have a few dings here and there. I'll get some better shots of those posted shortly. The fretboard is in very good condition. The previous owner used roundwound strings on it, so it has some light scratching from that. It's currently strung with Thomastik Infeld flatwounds.

    It has stock Warwick pickups (MEC) and has a John Eastman preamp and custom wood knobs. It also comes with an SKB Freedom molded hardshell case.

    Asking $1650 obo. Paypal or money order are ok with me.

    Absolutely beautiful! I have the 4-string fretted version of this; these are some of the finest basses ever made. Where did you get the custom knobs? Btw, this Infinity model is called the LTD (limited) or NT (neck-thru). I still haven't found out what the difference between the LTD and the NT is, but I know it is not the Infinity SN (set-neck). Good luck with the sale. :)

    These definitely are gorgeous basses! The versions with the Birds-eye Maple tops are killer. The knobs I got from Roger at THG Knobs about a year and a half ago.

    The LTD model was produced in 2000 and was the first run of the Infinity bass from Warwick. Anything produced following that run is the NT version, but it's essentially identical to the LTD from what I can tell (this one also had the Basslines pre-amp in it when I originally got it).

    This is a bass that I almost ordered. The price for new is crazy high on these. I have a 2 5 string fretless now or this would be my choice. Not an idle response, just on the fence. 3 5 string fretless? I have the same strings on both of mine. The only way to fly.

    Pooh. I will keep it in mind then. I do want it but in looking at the original photos the switches were installed and that was very not stock. The price is right though. Processing.....
