    I love the way Fortresses look! I love this green! Wenge neck! Of course I'm a Warwick kinda guy anyway, I already have a Thumb. Man, I wish Warwick would bring the Fortress back in production. Yeah, I know they have the Rockbass models, but they're not the same.

    Any of you guys have any experience with these basses? Comments? Post pics of your Fortress! Sound clips? I think I've heard a couple of these before and I remember them sounding very Warwick-ish but how do they compare in tone to Thumbs or Corvettes?

    near detroit...uh
    if this was a MM
    the auction would be over.

    do it, NOW!

    96 was a prime year and no warwick is as sought after than the fortress and fortress MM
    between 94-96
    and $700 is a steal
    I like the green too

    I have 2, 95' MM's
    and love them Unlike any other bass

    The Fortress body style IS available in the warwick custom shop. Which is the way you would go anyway if you wanted a wenge neck.

    i had a fantastic fortress 5er in red once...together with the dark wenge neck, the beautiful red tigerstripe maple body looked like blackforest cake...
    ...stupid was i to sell it.
    it was the passive J/J version. had a great sound. at that time, i thought the string spacing was too narrow for me. playability was perfect.

    so, get it !
