    Bubinga body
    Ovangkol neck
    Natural Oil finish
    Ebony fingerboard
    Chrome hardware
    Passive MEC “Dynamic Correction” J/J pickups

    Excellent condition with no issues
    Absolutely fantastic neck, dead straight and extremely stable

    $650 with Warwick Gig Bag
    $700 with Warwick RockCase Standard Hardshell Case
    $800 with Warwick RockCase Flight Case

    Buyer pays any shipping costs over $50, but I have a corporate UPS accounts that generally saves 40-45% off standard rates, so shipping should be reasonable (the last two basses I shipped cost less than $70 insured...).

    Would consider trade for medium scale fretted 5-string or a Warwick 5-string.

    Please make offers/inquiries via PM...

    How that neck? Is it one of those beefy baseball necks?
    Thanks Eno

    Thanks. It is definitely a visually beautiful instrument, but what really amazes me is that it feels even better than it looks.

    Beefy isn’t quite how I would describe it, but the neck is on the chunky side of the spectrum. It definitely has a “C” (i.e., baseball bat) profile and feels full in your hand, but in an incredibly smooth and comfortable way. Wish I knew how to describe it better, but it sounds like you probably know exactly what I’m talking about.

    Hey let me tell you what on this bass....... I've had one of these and a couple of other fretless to tinker with. Never stuck with it. BUT -- this Warwick Corvette fretless is the nicest, best sounding, and cheapest solution out there. At this price point you will not be disappointed. I'm tempted, too! And I know I'd just sell it in a couple of months anyhow. If you want to try a fretless, this is your instrument.

    Thanks for the input! I feel the same way about these basses. I hope the new owner will too (it just went to a new home a couple of hours ago).
