    I hate warwicks sound but I have to say, with the on off active switch the only reason I dont own is $$$$flow at the moment. The passive mode is great and the Active EQ great as well. Great growl... highly recommended bass. Bump for a great bass at a good price.

    PM if trades interest you.

    Whoa!

    I had a Warwick Corvette a while back and it sang like a bell. I can only imagine how awesome this one would be as a $$.

    Bump for a great looking bass.

    Man, nice bass. And local too!

    If I wasn't on the prowl for a Sadowsky right now, I'd be all over this.

    I'll keep you in mind though. This $$ would look great on the rack next to my Thumb, and I could definitely use a fiver.
