    I'm sadly tossing up this absolute gem for sale or possible trade. It's a WONDERFUL bass, but it's just not seeing the play time it deserves. sounds and plays amazingly, just had a pro set up.

    Asking $1350 shipped

    As far as trades go, I'm always up for offers. But in all reality, the only things I KNOW I'd want are

    Fender American deluxe jazz with the block inlays


    Musicman stingray 5 HS

    Other possibilities would include a 70's jazz bass.

    I'm absolutely insane about the newest Fender deluxe in white with the black pearl inlays :eek:

    I lean towards 5's but in this case 4 or 5's are nice.

    As always, hit me up with any questions.


    Construction: Bolt-On
    Colour: Natural Satin Finish
    Hardware colour: Black hardware
    Weight: 4,0 kg
    Matched Headstock: Matched Headstock Birdseye Poplar
    Machineheads : Warwick Machine Heads
    Nut: Just-A-Nut III
    Neck Wood: Flamed Maple neck
    Fretboard: Wenge fingerboard (fretted)
    Inlay: Gull inlays
    Fluorescent Side Dot: Side-Dots
    Fingerboard Radius: 20"
    Scale length: 34" (long scale)
    Fret quantity material and size: 24 Jumbo Bronze (extra hard) frets (width: 2.9 mm / height: 1.3 mm)
    Body Shape: Curved Bodyshape

    Probably a bit overkill, but I never know who might want to know what.

    What is the width at the nut? And, can you describe the neck feel....chunky or thin? Thanks.

    It's 1.5" at the nut. The neck isn't your typical Warwick feel. Its not quite as thin as a jazz but its close (depth-wise). Its not a thick baseball bat neck.
    Most of my buddies didn't like Warwicks because of the bat necks, but fell in love with this.
    Overall in general, I'd say its a bit thicker jazz neck. But not big n chunky.
  9. Definitely not thick and chunky.
    I have one of these and they're fantastic basses.
    They're also very light (normally about 8 lb) and have NO neck dive, which is very unusual for a thumb.

    I can thoroughly recommend this bass to whoever is interested.
    I've had mine for 6 years and can't see myself getting rid of it anytime soon.

    Added lots of spec info to original post.

    Electronics are stock 3 band EQ, vol, pickup balance. Push/pull active/passive on Vol knob.

    yea, I was extremely shocked about the neck dive too. I expected it to be there...but it's well balanced indeed!

    Interested in a 35" Spector euro 4?

    No thanks, not a bass I'd see me using often

    Some people have been asking about condition. Sadly I bought the bass with these in it, but on the positive, I didn't add any of my own :)
    They're relatively small, the ones in the back I had to try and get the light at the right angle.

    Aside from these 3, I couldn't find anything else. If I do while I'm scouring for them again, I'll surely make a note.

    Beautiful bass! is it bright or dark sounding?
  19. Exemonium


    May 13, 2010
    I'd say definitely brighter than darker.
  20. On the brighter side but with just enough compression for a great slap tone when you want it.
    Actually a great range of tones, particularly when activating the coil tap on the bridge pickup.
