I'm on the fence about this one. I got this bass from Christian McBride and it has tremendous sentimental value, so I reserve the right to come to my senses at any time and pull it off the market, but currently it's just not seeing much playing time, so let's see what happens. For sale, one 1996 Warwick Fortress Masterman, or at least I believe it's a Masterman. The specs match up, but the insert on the truss rod cover just says 'Fortress One.' I haven't seen an F1 with the twin-J pickup configuration, so I'm sticking with Masterman for now. - Body: Maple (w/ a subtle flame) - Neck: Bolt-on, wenge neck w/ ebony fingerboard. - Hipshot Warwick-specific Xtender (compensates for the angled placement of the Warwick tuners so the lever doesn't smack the tuner next to it) - The controls are three stacked pots in the following configuration: - volume / blend - treble / bass front pickup - treble bass back pickup (yes, it's a little odd to have so much control over to pickups that are right next to each other but they sound surprisingly different, so it's quite a useful preamp config.) I go back and forth between roundwounds and tapewounds so there's a bit of wear on the board from nickel rounds, but nothing serious and certainly nothing that affects playability. The body has a few dings, but nothing major. There's a bit of discoloration right by the front (neck side) of the pickup where *someone* anchored his thumb, which I suppose could be sanded out. I'm asking $1000. Not particularly interested in trades, though I could use a good small ultralight cab. I'd also like to try a Schroeder or Accugroove cab. Small lightweight heads are always a plus. I'm also looking for some effects, most notably: - Fodera or Sadowsky preamp pedal - Aguilar Tone Hammer - Tech 21 VT Bass - Demeter Compulator - Boomerang Phrase Sampler (or other looper) - Bass Whammy Thanks for looking. Don't hesitate to hit me up with any questions. I don't have a case for this one and I think my gigbag will be going with my other Warwick, but we'll figure something out. J.
