    Ive been looking at many basses for quite a while...I finally found a REALLY good deal on this warwick..my concern is I have never seen a finish like this and it occured to me that perhaps it just wasnt waxed or taken care of...Its a sweet bass, but will i be able to make it look decent again? Or is this a factory finish (doubt it).
    Thanks for any advice..Its a corvette $$

    Im looking at 500$ for this bass..again i know its an awesome buy, just want to get second opinions..
     
  2. Did you try to link to a picture in your email? It doesn't work like that...upload it to Photobucket.com or Imageshack.com. (I recommend photobucket)

    Also, even if you have to refinish the thing, you could still save money with this...that's an awesome deal.

    From what I can tell in that small picture, that is just a grainy piece of ash in a natural finish - nothing wrong with it. $$ basses have a swamp ash body and that is a factory finish. It might need some wax and maybe a lemon oil scrubdown, but nothing an hour and some household products couldn't take care of. A more detailed picture may tell a slightly different story, but as best I can tell there's nothing wrong with that finish and that's a killer piece of ash :)

    looks good if i had the money i'd buy one.
    i'd do that too. i've read quite a few comments on the need to protect that warwick finish so do so and enjoy that killer deal.

    All it's needs is some tlc.
    I've restored natural oil finished Warwicks in alot worse shape than that with nothing more than a scotchbrite pad,some lemon oil & Warwick wax.
