  1. Brand new for a little over 500, I love knowing people in high places. Plays like a dream. Except it didn't come with wax for whatever reason. All well, I'll just get some from Dana B Goods. Tell me what you think:

    All non-Rockbass Warwicks (except for customs or the old Fortress with the 2Tek) come with this!

    My 5 string vette didn't, and it was standard. It was made in 2001 which is most likely the reason.

    Very nice ... but it's missing a string. Dang! It's missing a tuner, too!

    :confused:

    AFAIK H P Wilfer used Schaller bridges on early models - up to 1987 - since then its the two-piece bridge, except for some custom orders, and the Fortress Flashback could be ordered with the 2Tek bridge optionallly.
    I dont understand how this can be :confused:
