    It looked like you put it in correctly. Unless that "G" is a "C"? The bass is clearly what you say it is. Warwick may have it wrong.

    I will try to find out. I have no reason to think it isn't legit, but it is odd that the info doesn't match. I've had it 10 years, and even got a new pot for it from Warwick for free a few years back.

    You're right, they've goofed. It couldn't even be that a neck got swapped, they're saying it's a neck-through. They've got an error. Beautiful bass, though. I love that green!

    I took the necessary pics and sent them to Warwick so they can correct it.

    Man that green looks badass. This thing has to weigh a ton though.

    These have a super flat fingerboard (~20" radius) and are so easy to play. Fast fingerstyle or funky slap is readily available. I spent years trying to find one as they are quite rare. GLWTS
