    Price: $700 shipped, but primarily looking to trade for a Warwick 5 (maybe 6) string.

    She's a beauty.

    This is the thinner profile of the wenge neck, I had another one with a wenge neck that was substantially thicker.

    Original brass adjustable nut. Wenge fretboard and bell brass frets, which are in good shape.

    Body is ash, and is a LOT lighter than the bubinga Corvette I owned.

    Easy access truss rod cover and control cavity cover. Passive, volume/blend/tone. Recessed Dunlop strap locks.

    And a super-sexy and rare marble finish.

    Comes with the original truss rod tool and gig bag. The bass is in great shape, but the bag isn't.

    EDIT: Serial # indicates 1996, 34" scale length.

    That is an amazing finish. Only bass I ever saw with a finish like that before was a Ritter.

    Bump for a sweet looking axe!!!

    I love that finish. Are there imperfections or damage to the finish anywhere? I have seen this bass once and thought it was pretty cool. Different for sure.

    Thanks. I won't say the finish is "mint", but is in great shape with no chips, dings, dents, or scratches. A tiny bit of swirling under the strings just from being played, but that's about it.

    All PM's returned (I think!)

    Regarding weight, I don't have an accurate way to measure it. Measured on an old, analog, innacurate scale, it looks like the bass is about 10lbs. It doesn't feel quite that heavy though so I'm not sure.

    I've never played another ash-bodied warwick, but this one is substantially lighter than any bubinga or ovangkol body warwick I've ever played.

    Hope that helps.
