    Hello everyone, I have a Closet queen for sale here. Amazing condition for 31 years old. The bass has Passive Bartolini pickups and sounds incredible.. Comes with a non-Warwick hard case. There are slight speckling dots on the tuner knobs that I will try to get better pictures of soon. Other than that the bass is in superb condition... mostly used for recording. Weighs 9.4 pounds. Any questions please feel free to ask. IMG_0343.JPG IMG_0333.JPG IMG_0334.JPG IMG_0335.JPG IMG_0339.JPG IMG_0341.JPG IMG_0345.JPG IMG_0348.JPG

    16.5 mm but it is also slightly adjustable.

    These have the thinner neck and body profile, yes?

    Most definitely... much thinner neck than my old 2003 Thumb BO I used to have and extremely comfortable. The body shape is a lot smaller on the upper horn and the concave back side of the bass feels a lot thinner as well. Thanks for the question. Cheers!

    Bass is headed to Indiana! Someone is going to be a very ecstatic bass player. Thank you to everyone for the kind words.
