    Not a Warwick guy myself, but I see the appeal...

    Anyway, congrats. Hope it does you good.

    These were very nice. I didn't get why they discontinued them. Coolest 'Wick shape.

    Yes they were pretty cool. When I bought my Peavey Cirrus years ago, it was down to the Cirrus and a Fortress 5 string for my final choices.
     
  5. Congrats on the new bass!

    I've always been a fan of the fortress shape.

    Well I took the bass for a spin last friday. It passed the test well, I must say. I didn't even have to tune up or anything, it stayed spot on the whole 90 minutes. That's one thing I couldn't say about my old Ibanez ATK 300.
    I have one question though.... from the serial number I could tell that the bass was made in oktober of 95. Could anyone tell me what woods were used in this bass? The body consists of two pieces of wood and the neck of three, I believe. Thanks in advance!

    Those warwicks are the sexiest after thumbs, in my opinion. Congrats!

    According to this, and my memory, maple body, ovangkol/wenge neck.

    I had a Fortress in the late 90's. Sure do miss that bass.
