    Hey Guys, a little more stable clearing here. Just bought this bass brand new two months ago but now with my new Nordy taking up most of the work, don't think I will be needing it. Only gigged once and only a few hours total play on it.. as new as you can buy without buying from the shop. As with all my basses, the first thing I had done was a fret dress, which was actually needed, so it plays great right now! Has a brand new set of Circle K String as well. Comes with the original gig bag and tags/paperwork from the factory. This has a closer spacing than the normal musicman 5'er and the vintage two band EQ. Sounds huge and phat! Great, great bass for the price. So many good basses under $1k these days, but I think this and the yamaha BB1025 are some of the very best. $500!

    Like I said, it just had a fret dress and plays nice and even across the entire fretboard. :) Great bass.

    I played one of these at my small local music store the other day & I was very impressed!
    For a 34' scale the b string is killer, was as good as my Lakland 55-02, just saying.

    There's a possibility I might be interested in this.. I was considering a 4 string in the same finish, but the 5 might be worth looking at..

    How tight is tighter string spacing? The Warwick 5 I have is too tight and it's why I'm getting rid of it.
