    I'd tell you all a sad story about how I need money, but no one really cares about stories :p

    Up for sale is my Warwick Corvette Fretless 6. It's a great playing and sounding bass, she's just not getting the attention that she deserves. I bought this bass from TB's zac2944 no more than 6 months ago, and, umm, yeah.

    Specs:
    - Serial # L-042946-97 (Bass was made in December of 1997)
    - 34" Scale
    - 2 Piece Bubinga body/5 Piece Wenge neck/Unlined Ebony fingerboard.
    - Seymour Duncan BassLines active pickups.
    - Volume/Tone/Stacked Bass+Treble knob
    - Silver hardware
    - Brass Adjust-a-nut
    - Schaller Straplocks
    - Weighs about 13 lbs. on the bathroom scale

    What else can I say? Tons of mwah, heaps of growly low end, slick mids, ringing highs. I've waxed it every month, it's in great shape. No major dings or scratches.

    I'm looking to get $950 shipped I'll consider international offers, but we'd be looking at an upcharge for shipping costs. No Trades...unless you're looking to unload a GT7 or a Jaco Sig :)

    Bass comes in a Spector gigbag with a set of TI Flats, a set of D'Adarrio rounds, a strap, and a fresh battery (Wooo!)

    I'm sorry Jackie.... Please forgive me.

    Bump for a sweet lady.

    I owned and loved this bass for many good years. I hope she goes to a good home.

    Wow. Lovely bass. The original just a nut is worth the asking price!

    Thanks

    Atm I want a 6 string and a fretless but a 6 string fretless is just too much for my poor little brain to comprehend. Nice bass though, shame if you have to evil bay it.
     
  10. Much love. :) No money. :( SWEET bass- someone buy it, please. :( Keep it in the TB family. :D

    I. agree.

    I only have $500 right now :*( . I'm just starting my job, (im in high school so...) and if I had any more money, that thing would be sitting on my lap right now. Guitar Center has a 6 string fretless Thumb BO right now. I'm drooling on my keyboard. The only way to make it stop, is to bump this.

    After a flurry of emails and PMs, I'm all up to date with everything.

    Bass is still for sale (evilbay idea in remission for now), but I do have a possible trade in the works.
