    It looks the same as this one here:


    For those who are really interested, pm me with your email for more pics.

    Anyways, the bass had been gigged by its previous owner and while there is alittle fret wear, it is nothing that affects playability. Back of the bass has a visible scratch, apart from that it is in pretty good condition. Prolly afew dings on the headstock but nothing you can see unless you look real close.

    The neck has been shimmed and the action is on the lower side of things, though I believe you can get it even lower with a skilled tech. No issues with the neck, it is straight and the truss rods turns both ways. It is the lightest warwick I have held and iirc it weighs around 8.1lbs according to my weighing scale.

    It sounds rather different from a normal thumb. It has a wider frequency range from what I can hear and I think it compliments the extreme pickup placement of the thumb really well. It will cut through a mix no problem, I guarantee.

    Main reason Im getting rid of it is due to the fact, I prefer fender styled basses with a pickguard. Thing is there is quite alot of allowance on this bass from the string to the body which makes it a little harder for me to pop(and slap) the strings. This is not a issue for everyone though, I believe, since my friend actually prefers to have more allowance for his fingers to pop the strings.

    Thing is I live in south east asia, and shipping is going to abit more than if you ship CONUS so please be prepared for that. It would cost about 90usd for me to ship it to the states, but apparently different parts of the states have different shipping fee to my country. But if the deal is right, Im sure we can work something out.

    Im basically looking for a jazz style 5 stringer with at least 24 frets. If you have a metro sadowsky mv524 then thats exactly what Im looking for, but if not feel free to throw me anything you think might interest me. Top ups can be on either side depending on the bass in question.
