    Very cool bass and I consider it a PJ killer with the flats it is currently strung with. German electronics with Chinese construction. Balances great and probably weighs around 9 lbs, maybe less? Swamp ash looks very cool and the bass is in amazing shape, never had a chance to gig with one.

    Specs:

    - Construction: Bolt-on
    - Body Material: Swamp Ash
    - Neck Material: Maple with Ekanga veneers
    - Fingerboard Material: Rosewood
    - Scale length: 34 in. (long scale)
    - Frets: 24
    - Fingerboard radius: 664 mm (26 in.)
    - Pickups: 2 Passive MEC MM-Style
    - Electronics: Passive
    - Controls:
    -- 2x Volume (Push/Pull for pickup splitting)
    -- 1 x Tone control
    - Machine Heads: Warwick
    - Bridge: Warwick two-piece bridge
    - Hardware: Chrome
    - Nut: Just-A-Nut III

    I also rewired the push pull pots to do full humbucking / single coil. Was wondering if I could get more of a J sound out of it in single coil mode (outer coils) but it does not sound like a J, just less 'middy' 'woody' with lower output. Sadly I cannot locate the warwick.de thread where I was instructed on how to rewire the push pots.

    With grad school I don’t have much time to play out and have been playing more rhythm guitar these days. Cash is king but the only trade I would consider is a 55-02 to just have...because I am greedy and know I will return to bass eventually and this is my ideal setup. Other than a 5502 I have no interest in gear, please respect that.

    Otherwise for a cash sale I am asking for [DEL]400[/DEL] 375 shipped to Cont. USA. Paypal, money orders work too! I would prefer to ship with the neck detached from the body since I do not have a case. If you have an issue with that I can accommodate. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Includes instruction manual, strap locks, and truss rod wrench.

    Can explain more about what you did with the wiring? Looking for what the knobs did before and what they do now....
    thanks!

    The original wiring of the push/pull pots changed the humbuckers from series to paraell. I changed it so down the humbuckers are in series, and when pulled up, the bridge humbucker has only the south side of the humbucker active (single coil), and the neck humbucker has only the north side of the humbucker active. (single coil).

    I hope that makes sense
