    I'm pretty sure the only dolphins I've seen have had a pair of Jazz sitting real close and near the bridge.

    unfortunately it's have to be REAL cheap for me to think about buying it... I've not played a Warwick I've liked yet.

    Hmmmmm. Thats a tricky one. If you look at the dolphin you can see the humbucker looks like two singles strapped together. Maybe they decided to shove 2 in. or maybe it was a dodgy camera angle. A link to the picture may help?

    The ones with two J-style pickups near the bridge are a short-lived bolt-on version of the Dolphin. It was Warwick's first attempt at a lower-cost bolt-on bass, as I recall, with a maple neck and rosewood board, but I don't remember the exact model name.

    My local music store had one of those in red back in the day. The tone seemed rather choked and lifeless compared to other Warwicks, but it was well made.

    I sent you a PM reply about this bass. Mine looks exactly like it. I don't know the British Pounds to American Dollars conversion, but if it's affordable and looks good to you, you might want to go with it.

    Everybody I've played this bass with or for, either loves it or hates it. Those who hate it hate the color, those who love it love the sound.
